The work in this project was carried out by 11 European Organisations within the 4th Framework EU Program on Nuclear Fission Safety. The main objectives if this project were to: - develop the capability of calculating the behaviour within a reactor vessel during a severe accident up to vessel melt-through so that the efficacy of accident management strategies can be assessed - understand how accurate the results of such calculations are. The project started in February 1996 and lasted for 3 years It was divided into four main work packages: - development of codes so that the can better represent reactor sequences. - execution of experiments that can be used for the calibration and validation of codes used for reactor sequences. - validation that codes are able to calculate experiments. Some of the experiments used are performed as part of this project. Others are the heritage of past programmes. - scaling studies to make sure that the experiments carried out in this projectrepresent as well as possible phenomena expected to be encountered in reactors.
