    CORECOOL, Convection and Radiation Emergency Cooling, is a model for the two-phase- flow and heat transfer in a fuel element during the core heat-up phase following a loss of coolant accident. The model for the two-phase flow is based on a solution of the conservation equations with a separate description of the two phases and thermodynamic non-equilibrium. The flow-regimes considered are drop flow and film flow. The heat transfer consists of convection, sputtering and radiation heat transfer. The documentation of CORECOOL consists of four parts:
    Part I: Model Description
    Part II: Programme Description (COMMERCIAL)
    Part III: Users Guide (COMMERCIAL)
    Part IV: Verification.(COMMERCIAL)
    CORECOOL is a joint project between Risø National Laboratory and General Electric Company, San José, USA.
