The involvement of investigators from an IAEA member state was in the framework of an agreement with the IAEA Co-ordinated Research Project on Fuel Modelling in Accident Conditions (FUMAC). Also involved in the benchmark were: (a) Simone Massara, Ian Hill and Julie-Fiona Martin from the Nuclear Energy Agency (technical secretaries and junior scientist); (b) Wolfgang Wiesenack from the OECD/NEA Halden Reactor Project (provider of experimental data); and (c) various observers, includingArndt Schubert from the European Commission (EC) Joint Research Centre (JRC) and Mikhail Veshchunov from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
