CERTA-TN: Consolidation of integral system test experimental databases for reactor thermal-hydraulic safety analysis: Summary report

Project ID: FIR1-CT-2000-20052
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

The CERTA Thematic Network has been established within and is supported by the European Commission Euratom Framework Programme 5 (1998-2002); Key Action: Nuclear Fission. It assembles experts from ten major European reactor safety research organisations involved in the experimental investigation of accidents and transients in water-cooled reactors.

The reactor safety experimental databases accumulated to date in European integral system test facilities provide a set of fundamental information for the safe operation of existing reactors and for the development and assessment of related computational methodologies. The report recommends that this unique set of reference information should be preserved and made readily accessible, since such large-scale experimental programmes may not be repeated again.
