Cooperative Research Agreements to Improve NRC Safety Codes
Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has three international agreement cooperative research programs that improve NRC Safety Codes and enhance nuclear safety. This poster presentation will provide an overview of the following:
- Code Application and Maintenance Program (CAMP)
- Cooperative Severe Accident Research Program (CSARP)
- Radiation Protection Code Analysis and Maintenance Program (RAMP)
CAMP focuses on thermal-hydraulic system analysis codes (e.g., TRACE). CSARP focuses on severe accident codes (e.g., MELCOR, MACCS). RAMP focuses on radiation protection and dose assessment codes (e.g., RASCAL, RADTRAD, HABIT, VARSKIN, DandD, PIMAL, and the radiological toolbox database).
