Post-test analyses of two LOBI experiments were performed in parallel using the advanced best estimate codes RELAPS/MOD2 and ATHLET/MOD1.0. The selected tests comprised a broad range of thermohydraulic phenomena. Good agreement between measured and analysed overall thermohydraulic behaviour and the small deviations between RELAP and ATHLET results demonstrate the large potential of both codes to describe thermohydraulic transients relevant to safety of light water reactors.
