    Features of the BWR-simulator complex SYNTRONVOID and ELGYFO are described. Calculations are carried out in order to demonstrate effects of various approximations in both hydraulic models and in the flux synthesis method, which is used for the neutron flux calculation. Subchannel calculations have been performed for a BWR fuel assembly to investigate effects of nonuniform radial void distribution in an assembly. Finally examples of prediction of burn out are shown.
