RELAP5-3D is the latest in the RELAP5 code series developed at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) for the analysis of transients and accidents in water-cooled nuclear power plants and related systems as well as the analysis of advanced reactor designs.

The RELAP5-3D code is an outgrowth of the one-dimensional RELAP5/MOD3 code developed at the INL. The most prominent attribute that distinguishes RELAP5-3D from its predecessors is the fully integrated, multi-dimensional thermal-hydraulic and kinetic modeling capability.
RELAP5-3D is available from the INL through membership in the International RELAP5 Users Group (IRUG).
