Abstract: AbstractIn the framework of the 5 th EU-FWP project ECORA the capabilities of CFD software packages for simulating flows in the containment of nuclear reactors was evaluated. Four codes were assessed using two basic tests in the PANDA facility addressing the transport of gases in a multi-compartment geometry. The assessment included a first attempt to use Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) to the analysis of long, large-scale, transient problems. Due to the large computational overhead of the analysis, the BPGs c…
