Abstract

The objective of the REWET research project is to improve the understanding of the basic phenomena of accident situations in nuclear power plants and to provide experimental data for the development and verification of the LOCA and SBLOCA codes. For calculations of the experiments exact data of the facility and the initial state of the experiment must be known. The REWET-II and REWET-III facilities are described here in order to give necessary information about the facilities and to prepare input for the computer codes.
