The continuous efforts to raise nuclear safety to the highest standards possible has pointed the need to assess the methodologies used in severe accident simulation. The overall objective of the MUSA project is to assess the capability of severe accident codes when modelling reactor and SFP (Spent Fuel Pool) accident scenarios of Gen II and Gen III reactor designs. To do so UQ (Uncertainty Quantification) methodologies are to be used, with emphasis on the effect of already-set and innovative accident management measures on accident unfolding, particularly those related to ST (Source Term) mitigation. Therefore, ST related FOM (Figures Of Merit) are to be used in the UQ application. Given the focus of FOM on source term, the project will identify variables governing ST uncertainties that would be worth investigating further.
