    Abstract

    A three-year, U.S. - Korean INERI project was recently completed in which the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL), Seoul National University (SNU), Pennsylvania State University (PSU), and Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) explored options, such as enhanced External Reactor Vessel Cooling (ERVC) and the use of internal core catchers, that have the potential to ensure that in-vessel retention (IVR) is feasible for high power reactors. As part of this project, state-of-the-art analytical tools and key U.S. and Korean experimental facilities were used to evaluate options that could increase the margins for successful IVR associated with proposed modifications. This paper describes efforts by INEEL to apply analytical methods to evaluate the increase in margin associated with various design options evaluated in this project. Results from evaluations using the SCDAP/RELAP5-3D
