This report instructs the reader on how to perform deterministic analysis of severe accidents in pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWRs) by means of available computer codes. The analysis of accident phenomena should assist in the development of practicable preventive or mitigatory measures. In addition to providing a framework for data collection and analysis relevant to both the in- and ex-vessel phases of severe accidents, the publication also provides guidance for severe accident management.
