Main Question or Discussion Point

I am trying to make simulation of severe accidents in advanced nuclear reactors.

Can anybody advice me in how to write the input deck?

Is there any training materials about that?

Please, share your experience in simulationg nuclear reactors, problems you faced, etc.

The structure input deck depends on the code one is using. Is one using TRACE?

To what kind of advanced reactor is one referring? Gen-III+ or Gen-IV?

There are training materials for most analytical codes. Usually a user's manual will have some example problems.

Actually, I will use TRACE and I'll try it to AP1000, Advanced Passive PWR.

Not many researchs were made using TRACE in AP1000, that's why I'm asking.

Even if they can't or won't help, they may have other contacts they can refer. Networking can be as good as a library. Try a web search for the TRACE Code and AP1000. Go to the NRC home page and try the same search. After all it is their go to code.

Good Luck.

Thank you very much. I will try with these pages.

Best regards.
