The LOCA (loss of coolant accident) is a hypothesized, low-probability accident used as a licensing basis for nuclear power plants. Computer codes which have been under development for at least a decade have been the principal tools used to assess the consequences of the hypothesized LOCA. Models exist in two versions. In EM's (Evaluation Models) the basic engineering calculations are constrained by a detailed set of assumptions spelled out in the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50… CONTINUE READING
