The object of this work is the validation and assessment of the TRACE code using the scaled test ATLAS[1] facility in the context of the ISP-50[2]. The ISP-50 was proposed by the OECD/NEA/CSNI due to its technical importance to develop a best-estimate safety analysis methodology for the DVI[3] line break accidents. In particular, the experiment selected for ISP-50 models the 50% 6-inch break of a DVI line.
