Hi there,
I'm gonna couple WIMS & CITATION as neutronic codes with COBRA as an thermalhydraulic code.
Please let me know if there is any resources, papers or tips and tricks to do so.

Thanks

I suspect there isn't any references. I do know that various groups are attempting to couple nuclear and T/H codes, and some perhaps have in a crude way.

Is this for an LWR system? PWR, BWR or both?

Will the code be used for steady-state or transient simulations?

I want to use it for a PWR and the codes are used for steady-state calculations.

Hi Libertad
I have a peresentation(ppt) about coupling neutronic & thrmohydrolic codes(wims+citation+cobra). But I have not your mail to sending you.

FYI - CASL - Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL)

http://www.ornl.gov/ornlhome/b_roll/casl.shtml [Broken]

University of Tennessee - Knoxville will likely have a role in this program.
