Reactor Safety


  • Development, validation and application of the code complex DYN3D-ATHLET

    The reactor dynamics code DYN3D has been developed at the Institute of Safety Research and coupled with the thermohydraulic system code ATHLET of the Gesellschaft für Anlagen- und Reaktorsicherheit. This coupled code complex can be used for the analysis of a broad spectrum of transients in Light Water Reactors. DYN3D is available in two versions - for Russian VVER type reactors and western LWRs. The validation is accomplished on international code comparisons (benchmark exercises) as well as on the comparison of calculations with measurement data from transients in nuclear power plants. Presently, a code version with multiple energy groups and SP3 neutron transport approximation is being developed. The DYN3D code has been integrated into the European code platform NURESIM.

    Other actual objectives are:
    • the analysis of hypothetical reactivity initiated transients like boron dilution events and anticipated transient without scram,
    • investigations on the minimisation of the actinides inventory in Light Water Reactors (EU project LWR-DEPUTY),
    • development of DYN3D versions for molten salt reactors and gas-cooled high temperature reactors
