2006 (English)In: Nuclear Engineering and Design, ISSN 0029-5493, E-ISSN 1872-759X, Vol. 236, no 13, 1362-1370 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An experimental examination of the cooled vessel steel corrosion during the interaction with molten corium is presented. The experiments havebeen conducted on “Rasplav-2” test facility and followed up with physico-chemical and metallographic analyses of melt samples and coriumspecimeningots. The results discussed in the first part of the paper have revealed specific corrosion mechanisms for air and inert atmosphere abovethe melt. Models have been proposed based on this information and approximate curves constructed for the estimation of the corrosion rate orcorrosion depth of vessel steel in conditions simulated by the experiments.
