    The fundamental objective of the project is to continue the development of the truly independent transient calculation system concentrating on three-dimensional reactor dynamics computer codes and thermal hydraulics models, which can be utilized by the safety authority and other end-users for safety analyses. During the first half of the SAFIR2010 programme, the main emphasis has been on the subtasks related to internal coupling of TRAB-3D neutronics and SMABRE hydraulics, and the development of the 3D thermal hydraulics model based on the porous medium approach. Participation in international work groups and benchmark activities has provided crucial support for the development work. Education of new experts has, as always, been a priority.
