Thermal hydraulic codes are commonly used tools in licensing processes for the evaluation of various thermal hydraulic scenarios. The uncertainty of a thermal hydraulic code prediction is calculated with uncertainty analyses. The objective of all the uncertainty analysis is to determine how well a code predicts with corresponding uncertainties. If a code has a big output uncertainty, this code needs further development and/or model improvements. If a code has a small uncertainty, this code needs maintenance program in order to keep this small output uncertainty. Uncertainty analysis also indicates the more validation data is needed.3.6.
