A methodology is proposed for the evaluation of a steam explosion load on a reactor scale by evaluating the steam explosion model against the experimental data. Being part of the OECD/SERENA program,, appropriate data was selected by international experts and the analytical model of TEXAS-V was chosen. The procedure consists of two steps. the pre-mixing model was verified against the FARO L-14 and FARO L-28 data. The explosion model was verified against the experimental data of KROTOS-44, FARO L-33, TROI-13, and TROI-34. The capabilities and deficiencies of the fundamental models of the TEXAS-V are reviewed in terms of their adequacy in a simulation of steam explosion on a reactor scale.
