    Abstract

    Within the TRICOT project, the in-house code PORFLO is being developed for 3D thermal hydraulics, with main emphasis on modeling of two-phase flow of steam and water. Its intended main use is in reactor dynamics calculations, but several other applications are possible as well. In this paper, the main features and some specific development steps taken in 2009-2010 [1, 2] are presented on a descriptive level. The results of a few demonstrative simulations are presented in order to illustrate the potential capabilities and shortcomings of the code and the methods being used.
