Title: Integration of Hydra-TH in VERA (L2 Milestone THM.CFD.P5.01)

Abstract

This report describes the work carried out for completion of the Thermal Hydraulics Methods (THM) Level 2 Milestone THM.CFD.P5.01 for the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL). This milestone focused primarily on the initial integration of Hydra-TH in VERA. The primary objective for this milestone was the integration of Hydra-TH as a standalone executable in VERA. A series of code extensions/modifications have been made to Hydra-TH to facilitate integration of Hydra-TH in VERA and to permit future tighter integration and physics coupling. A total of 61 serial and 64 parallel regression tests have been supplied with Hydra-TH. These tests are are being executed in the TriBITS environment. Once the VERA team enables the full suite of tests, the results can be posted to the VERA CDash site. Future work will consider the use of the LIME 2.0 interface for tighter integration in VERA with additional efforts focused on multiphysics coupling with radiation transport, fuel performance, and solid/structural mechanics.
