Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


The purpose of the EMERALD project is to achieve a reliable computer code system for all necessary steady-state and transient reactor analyses. Development of models and codes as well as validation of the latter have included neutron cross section studies, nodal, Monte Carlo and deterministic transport methods, criticality safety calculations and the improvement of the dynamics codes to allow coolant flow reversal. Sensitivity and uncertainty analysis is applied to both stationary and dynamic problems. Several international meetings have been arranged and the results of the codes tested through benchmark calculations and other comparisons.
