Abstract

Due to the lack of experimental data, in the last years many attempts were carried out to fill the gaps on the knowledge of Iodine behaviour. In this framework, two tests (ThAI Iod-11 and Iod-12) were carried out inside a multi-compartment steel vessel. A quite complex transient characterizes these two tests; therefore they are also suitable for thermal-hydraulic benchmarks. The two tests were originally released for a benchmark exercise during the SARNET2 EU Project. At the end of this benchmark a report covering the main findings was issued, stating that the common codes employed in SA studies were able to simulate the tests but with large discrepancies. The present work is then related to the application of the new versions of ASTEC and MELCOR codes with the aim of carry out a new code-to-code comparison vs. ThAI Iod-12 experimental data.
