This paper discusses the results of a computational activity devoted to the prediction of boiling
crisis phenomena. The capabilities of the FLICA-OVAP code have been tested against an
extensive experimental database made available by the Japanese Nuclear Power Energy
Corporation (NUPEC) in the frame of the PWR Subchannel and Bundle Tests (PSBT)
international benchmark promoted by OECD and NRC. The experimental steady-state and
transient tests herein addressed involve boiling crisis phenomena in rod bundles with uniform
and non-uniform heat flux conditions. To some extent, the obtained results show good agreement
between experimental data and calculations in many of the addressed conditions.
