The capabilities of the current Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) codes in relation to safety analysis of existing installations and evolutionary reactors will be assessed in the present project. Through a comprehensive evaluation of previous applications for both primary loop and containment analysis, recommendations on their use will be made and perspective application areas will be identified.
A consensus will be achieved on the code extensions that are needed for comprehensive simulations of a range of safety-relevant accident scenarios to prepare the technical basis for coordinated research projects in future. It includes a new validation exercise of basic capabilities of the codes in relation to containment analysis and severe AM. This is to improve understanding of merits and limitations of CFD and defining realistic goals of these methods in safety analysis and reinforcing network among CoC.
