is a "best estimate" system code suitable for the analysis of all
transients and postulated accidents in Light Water Reactor (LWR) systems,
including both large- and small-break loss-of-coolant accidents
(LOCAs) as well as the full range of operational transients. The
one dimensional RELAP5/MOD3 code is based on a non-homogeneous and
non-equilibrium model for the two-phase system that is solved by a fast,
partially implicit numerical scheme to permit economical calculation of
system transients. As a part of the severe accident core
meltdown code SCDAP/RELAP5, RELAP5/MOD3 describes the thermal
hydraulic aspects of both LWR systems and of the degrading core. RELAP5 and
the coupled version SCDAP/RELAP5 are being developed at INEEL.
In addition, RELAP5 can be used to solve many plant thermal-hydraulic problems. Modeling of single and two-phase systems can be accomplished using many types of valves, heat exchangers and pumps. Using the best estimate (BE) code, RELAP5, for probabilistic safety analysis (PSA) has be performed with much success.
The code includes many generic models allowing to simulate general thermo hydraulic systems. The models include pumps, valves, pipes, heat releasing or absorbing structures, reactor point kinetics, electric heaters, jet pumps, turbines, separators, accumulators, and control system logic elements. RELAP5 represents the aggregate accumulation of experience in modeling reactor core behavior during accidents, two-phase flow processes, and LWR systems. The code development has benefited from extensive application and validation against a lot of experimental programs.
