CSNI Code Validation Matrix of Separate Effects Test Data

Data Collection at NEA Data Bank

Warning: Please note that some experimental data is missing.

Content last revised October 2010

The construction of an internationally agreed separate effects test (S.E.T.) Validation Matrix for thermal-hydraulic system codes is an attempt to systematically collect the best sets of openly available test data for code validation, assessment and improvement, including quantitative assessment of uncertainties in the modeling of individual phenomena by the codes - as outlined in the Code Validation Matrix of Document OCDE/GD(94)82 and OCDE/GD(94)83. These data with accompanying documentation are available on DVD. The writing format of the DVD conforms to the standard ISO 9660. Each DVD contains a copy of the INDEX file. It summarizes the complete contents of all DVDs.

The reports describing the experiments have been electronically scanned and transformed into PDF files. Each report is stored in a separate subdirectory.

Restrictions apply to the distribution of the data.

To request a copy, please go to www.oecd-nea.org/tools/ie/.

All safety packages are labelled "CSNI".
