2006 (English)In: Nuclear Engineering and Design, ISSN 0029-5493, E-ISSN 1872-759X, Vol. 236, no 17, 1810-1829 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper is concerned with corrosion of a cooled vessel steel structure interacting with molten corium in air and neutral (nitrogen) atmospheresduring an in-vessel retention scenario. The data on corrosion kinetics at different temperatures on the heated steel surface, heat ﬂux densities andoxygen potential in the system are presented. The post-test physico-chemical and metallographic analyses of melt samples and the corium–specimeningot have clariﬁed certain mechanisms of steel corrosion taking place during the in-vessel melt interaction.
