Independent audit of the ICARE code
An independent audit of the ICARE core degradation code has been made, and its validation status checked against RELAPS/SCDAP. A major problem is that users tend to adjust modelling parameters in order to reproduce experimental results, reducing the consistency of these values between applications. The most urgent task is to include in the code the ability to model liquid water. The developers are also urged to introduce late-phase models, for assessment of accident mitigation measures.
