Abstract

EUCLID integrated code for safety analysis of nuclear reactors with sodium, lead-bismuth and lead coolants is being developed at the IBRAE of the Russian Academy of Sciences. EUCLID/VI version integrates several codes modeling core neutronics and thermal hydraulics transients for various fuel types. In 2013, cross-verification of EUCLID/VI code with DINAR dynamic code used for nuclear reactor projects justification was started. In the report, EUCLID/VI and DINAR codes are described, calculation results obtained by these codes being in a good agreement.
