The NEA thermal hydraulic code validation benchmark for high temperature gas-cooled reactors using HTTF data (HTGR T/H), supervised by the Expert Group on Reactor Core Thermal-Hydraulics and Mechanics (EGTHM), will be initiated during the first international workshop hosted by the Oregon State University, United States. This event will be an opportunity to discuss the benchmark specifications, to define the working method of the benchmark activity, and to build the benchmark community.
The workshop will be hosted by Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, United States.
