ALMOD4: Advanced PWR Transient Analysis Code
ALMOD4 is a PWR-plant model suitable for the analysis of anticipated and abnormal operational transients and small break events. For this purpose a detailed description of all important components and control systems is necessary, also high computational speed is important. The nature of the thermal-hydraulic processes involved with these types of transients allows the treatment of the fluid-dynamics to be less complex than in the blow-down codes (e. g. thermal equilibrium).
