The OECD/SETH-2 project was carried out during the period 2007-2010 under the auspices of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and with support provided by the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Korea (Republic of), Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland. PSI (Switzerland) and the CEA (France) acted as operating agents.

The project investigations addressed hydrogen behaviour in the reactor containment during a postulated severe accident, and is based on experimental investigations performed in the PANDA (PSI) and MISTRA (CEA) facilities, both of which are equipped with computational fluid dynamics (CFD)-grade instrumentation. 

The experimental data and the project deliverables produced during the OECD/SETH-2 project have been distributed to the project signatories. The Management Board of the OECD/SETH-2 project has agreed that these data and the final project report could also be released to non-signatories after 31 December 2013. However, the Management Board recommended to the operating agents that the present summary report, containing the main outcomes of the OECD/SETH-2 project, be prepared for distribution to CSNI.
