The hydrodynamics section of the RELAP5-3D computer program has been recently improved. Changes were made as follows: (1) improved turbine model, (2) spray model for the pressurizer model, (3) feedwater heater model, (4) radionuclide transport model, (5) improved pump model, and (6) compressor model. These changes will be discussed.
