Abstract

The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) has sponsored the development of a computer tool for the error diagnosis and interpretation of the results obtained with the code RELAP5/MOD3.2.

The report describes the tests used to check the consistency of the results and illustrates some application examples that point out some defficiencies in the code.
