RELAP/SCDAPSIM is a nuclear reactor simulator and accident analysis code that has been used in the nuclear energy industry for many years. Currently, Innovative Systems Software is developing a new tool that will show the behavior of the core components during a simulation of an accident. The addition of contour plots for the SCDAP components showing different properties: temperature, hydrogen production, etc. will allow a better understanding of core behavior during a severe accident in a nuclear reactor. The SCDAP components are fuel rods, electrically heated simulator rods, such as those used in the CORA experiments, control rods, a shroud and a BWR blade/box. This paper describes the progress in the development of the contour plot tool based on the OpenGL and FORTRAN90 libraries. The purpose of this tool is help to the user analyze the simulation of an accident and to debug an input file.
