Abstract [en]

For new designs of NPPs with VVER-1000 reactors a crucible-type core catcher has been developed to stabilize and cool down molten corium in the reactor pit. The paper addresses distinguishing features of the concept including the "sacrificial" material and the core catcher design. Main phenomena in the catcher have been analyzed.
