This report presents a code assessment study for RELAP-5 Hod-2/CYCLE 36.05 based on a plant transient ( TIHANGE 2 power plant following reactor trip ).

The plant trip from full power was performed as part of a commissioning test series on January 11th, 1983, and most important plant parameters were recorded on a Data Acquisition System ( DAS ).

The analysis by means of the frozen version of the RELAP-5/HOD-2/CYCLE 36.05 code was performed to qualify the plant input data deck for this plant and assess the code potential for simulating such transient.

This work is performed by TRACTEBEL, which is the Architect-Engineer for all Belgian nuclear power plants and a member of ICAP.
