Abstract

On September 1989 ENEA and RDIPE started a common research program for studying the Chernobyl accident: The two groups of specialists agreed about the methods of calculation, the evaluation of the results and a common organization to implement a new three-dimensional code. The first phase of the accident starts from the insertion of the safety rods which can produce, with the configuration of April 1986, the insertion of a positive reactivity. The analysis of this phase led to the evaluation of the total static reactivity in the real configuration, and to an accurate comparison between calculated and experimental local neutron fluxes. The cooperation, still continuing on the reactor modelling is now being extended to the fuel design and safety analysis, to the study of boiling instabilities in the frame of International Boiling Instability Program, and to other aspects of the RBMK safety improvement and implementation.
