2005 (English)In: Proceedings of the American Nuclear Society - International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants 2005, ICAPP'05, Curran Associates, Inc. , 2005, Vol. 2, 1221-1227 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
