Application of the SCANAIR Code for VVER RIA Conditions – Boron Dilution Accident

Asko Arffman, Bernard Cazalis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

This paper consists of two parts. In part A, RIA pulse tests conducted at the Russian BIGR reactor are being analysed at IRSN with SCANAIR V6 fuel performance code as a part of the code validation for VVER fuel. Recently a new version of the SCANAIR code was made available to VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, and part B of the paper covers the introduction of the code version at VTT by a calculation of a hypothetical boron dilution accident in a VVER-440 power reactor.
