CRISSUE-S: Revisiting Critical Issues in Nuclear Reactor Design/Safety by Using 3D Neutronics/ Thermal-Hydraulics Models: State of the art report

Project ID: FIKS-CT-2001-00185
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

The CRISSUE-S project aims at re-evaluating fundamental technical issues in the technology of light water nuclear reactors that is connected with the interactions between neutron kinetics and thermal-hydraulics modeling aspects that deal with the neutron moderation and cause concerns for the accident performance of the NPP. All of this is done in the light of the advanced computational tools that are available to the scientific community. The objectives for the CRISSUE-S project are:
- Establishing a State-Of-the-Art (SOAR) on the subject.
- Providing results of best estimate analyses of complex transients for existing NPP.
- Providing recommendations to interested organizations.
- Identifying areas of the NPP design where the design/safety requirements can be relaxed.
