An extensive thermalhydraulics and safety program has been established in Canada to support the research and development effort for the CANDU supercritical water-cooled reactor design. This program focuses mainly on establishing the research capability at various Canadian universities, and includes several collaborative projects with Chinese universities to expedite the pre-conceptual design. Several test facilities in support of the supercritical heat transfer research are described. Selected results are presented from analytical studies.
