Severe Accidents in Nuclear Reactors : Corium Retention Technologies and Insights, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback


Severe Accidents in Nuclear Reactors: Corium Retention Technologies and Insights presents an authoritative and practical analysis of the latest severe accident management strategies based on previous events and experiments.

Written for utilities and industries operating and researching nuclear cooled reactor power plants, this book presents the exponential growth in research since major nuclear accidents and acts as a guide to retaining molten corium, both inside and outside the reactor vessel.

Sections cover the physics behind several complex phenomena occurring during corium coolability, providing the reader with an in-depth understanding by presenting the insights obtained from simulated severe accidents. In addition, the book validates several severe accident codes and provides evidence on the termination of severe accident progressions to help the reader evaluate the safety of existing reactors and design the next generation of nuclear reactors.
