An auotomated assessment program was studied to provide quantitative comparisons between nuclear reactor systems (NRS) code results and experimental measurements. This program significantly streamlines the verification and validation processes in NRS code development environments. A number of NRS sample applications were also discussed that illustrate the functionality of the code and its ability to provide objective accuracy measures.
