Abstract

To justify the safety of modern nuclear reactor with a liquid metal coolant, a system of codes is required to simulate reactor behaviorduring severe accidents such as ULOF and UTOP. For these purposes, the coupled code EUCLID/V2 is developed by Nuclear Safety Insitute of the Russian Academy of Science. To demonstrate the ability of the code to model various phenomena, it is necessary to carry out the procedure of its verification. To verify EUCLID/V2 code, the calculations of the exeriments on Direct Electrical Heating (DEH) experimental installation at the Argon National Laboratory, the High-Ramp-Rate experiments (HRRE) experiments on the Annular Core Research Reactor research reactor in National Laboratory Sandia and the Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University were performed. The results of calculation are presented in paper. On the base of the calculations of these experiments, some calculation errors has been estimated, as well as the factors that have the greatest influence on the calculation results.
