Code Application and Maintenance Program

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research

The NRC and its international partners have formed the Code Application and Maintenance Program (CAMP) to exchange information on thermal hydraulic analyses of reactor and plant systems. The poster will present the following information:

  • What is CAMP?

    • CAMP is an international program for sharing assessments, research, code development, and accident analysis for reactor and plant systems.
    • Twenty five countries participate in CAMP.
    • The NRC hosts biannual meetings to review progress and to report code development and assessment status.
  • How do members benefit?

    • CAMP provides a venue for members to develop and share knowledge about thermal hydraulic safety analysis. The user community and the quality of the analysis codes benefit through the network provided by CAMP.
  • How does the NRC benefit?

    • Member contributions have saved NRC resources and improved the codes. The larger user community and range of analyses help to identify code problems and improved modeling approaches.
