The phenomenon of the partial flow blockage of a fuel assembly in a reactor core is investigated with a coupled 3D neutronics/thermal-hydraulics code in order to account for the space reactivity feedback effect which is of great importance during hypothetical blockage scenarios. This paper identifies the neutronics thermal-hydraulics coupled response in the blocked assembly during the transient and analyzes the details of the phenomenon.
