The COMPASS code is designed to analyze multi-physics problems involving thermal hydraulics, structure and phase change, in a unified framework of MPS method. In FY2006 and 2007, development of the basic functions of COMPASS was completed and fundamental verification calculations were carried out. In FY2007, the integrated verification program using available experimental data for key phenomena in CDAs was also started. In this paper, we show the basic verification calculations for the phase change model of COMPASS and the results of experimental analyses, together with the outline of the formulation of MPS method and the conceptual design of the COMPASS code.
