European network for the consolidation of the integral system experimental data bases for reactor thermal-hydraulic safety analysis

Objective

The reactor safety experimental data bases acquired in European integral system test facilities provide reference information for the understanding of governing physical phenomena and for the validation of related computational methodologies.The present proposal aims at the exploitation of advanced information technologies to ensure a distributed repository of experimental data together with supporting test facility design and instrumentation data. The underlining rationale is the fact that advancement in hardware and software technologies is making traditional data storage obsolete and retrieval unpractical. Since there is a continuous need to access representative experimental data for benchmarking reactor safety code predictive capabilities, the nuclear community is thus asked to take prompt action to preserve the experimental heritage acquired in the past with considerable investment of resources.
