This paper presents an assessment of various models that can be used for the multidimensional analysis of single and multiphase flows in nuclear reactor systems. In particular, a model appropriate for the direct numerical simulation of single and multiphase flows and a three-dimensional, turbulent, four-field, two-fluid computational multiphase fluid dynamic model are discussed.
