Abstract

An overview is presented of the current activities within the international consortium participating in the Three Mile Island Unit 2 (TMI-2) Analysis Exercise, which is part of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Nuclear Energy Agency/U.S. Department of Energy Joint Task Group program on TMI-2, formed to utilize the TMI-2 accident as a benchmark for severe accident computer codes.
The participants have utilized various state-of-the-art severe core damage analysis computer codes to simulate the TMI-2 accident.
The results of the analyses, although qualitatively similar, are quantitatively quite different. This indicates that continued development of these codes is desirable.
