Abstract

A detailed evaluation of the results submitted for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development/Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installation (OECD/CSNI) international standard problem (ISP) 39 by fifteen participants, has been carried out in this report. The fast Fourier transform (FFT) based method, widely utilized for assessing the results of thermalhydraulic system codes calculations, is at the basis of the evaluation. ISP-39 has been conceived to benchmark the predictive capabilities of computer codes used in evaluation of fuel coolant interaction (FCI) and quenching phenomenologies of relevance in water cooled reactors severe accidents safety analysis.
