    The main objectives of the THARE project are to develop and validate calculation methods for safety evaluation of nuclear power plants. The CCFL model of the APROS code has been validated with the IVO upper tie plate experiments. The analysis capabilities of APROS have been verified with the integral OECD/ROSA and OECD/PSB-VVER experiments. TRACE code validation has been started with creating a model of ROSA/LSTF test facility. Containment analysis methods have been enhanced by developing and validating a wall condensation model in Fluent CFD code and by validating the spray model of the APROS code.
