This paper outlines major objectives and significant achievements of the LOBI research programme which is being conducted at Ispra This is mainly devoted to the operation of a scaled test facility for the generation of experimental data relevant to postulated accident conditions in pressurised water reactors. Although the experimental results cannot be directly extrapolated to full-size plants due to inherent scaling constraints, they provide a reference data base for the understanding of phenomenologies governing pressurised water reactor thermal-hydraulics and for the assessment of analytical tools used in reactor safety analysis.
