The paper focuses on the development, implementation, and initial validation of the NEK-2P two-fluid two-phase model. Recent extensions of the Extended Boiling Framework (EBF) models are presented, including the implementation of a four-field two-phase topology which replaces the previous two-field two-phase approach. The paper presents results of recent NEK-2P analyses of several CHF experiments. Good agreement between the simulated wall temperatures and measured data is observed. The simulation results predict well both the dryout location and post dryout wall temperature magnitudes, illustrating the ability of the NEK-2P code and extended EBF models to simulate the CHF phenomena for a range of thermal-hydraulic conditions.
