Overview and outcomes of Benchmark Study of the Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi NPS (OECD/NEA BSAF Project)

Nagase, Fumihisa; Gauntt, R. O.*; Naito, Masanori*

The OECD/NEA Benchmark Study of the Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (BSAF) Project has been established in November 2012. Fifteen organizations of eight countries calculated thermo-hydraulic behavior with severe accident integral codes. The primary objective of this benchmark study is to estimate accident progression, status in the reactor pressure vessels and primary containment vessels, and status of debris distribution for a debris removal plan. Finally the calculated results submitted by the participants were compared and evaluated to estimate the accident progression and status inside the reactors though the results showed wide variations. Still remaining uncertainties and data needs that are useful to the communication between analysts and decommissioning activities are also summarized as the output from the project.
