Development of a RELAP5-3D Multidimensional Model of a VVER-1000 NPP for Analysis of a Large-Break Loss-of-Coolant Accident Academic Article uri icon


  • The development of a RELAP5-3D multidimensional model for the VVER-1000 nuclear power plant was discussed. The model was to be used for the analysis of large break loss of coolant accidents. The model showed a reduction in the calculated hot-spot peak-clad temperature (PCT) and an increase in PCT during the reflood stages.
