Title: Preliminary SAM Assessment

Abstract

The System Analysis Module (SAM) is a modern system analysis tool being developed at Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) for advanced non-LWR safety analysis. To assist NRC to assess SAM capabilities for advanced reactor safety analysis and licensing at the NRC, a series of verification and other standard tests (OSTs) are modeled in SAM and code simulation results are compared with available analytical results. This report documents the preliminary SAM assessment using a matrix of six test problems. Each test problem is further examined with different boundary conditions, system configurations, or modeling options. Although relatively simple, these tests cover the basic equation models, basic component models, and basic system level processes and phenomena that must be modeled for advanced reactor safety analyses.
