Water boiling on the corium melt surface under VVER severe accident conditions
2000 (English)In: Nuclear Engineering and Design, ISSN 0029-5493, E-ISSN 1872-759X, Vol. 195, no 1, 45-56 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Experimental results are presented on the interaction of corium melt with water supplied on its surface. The tests were conducted in the `Rasplav-2' experimental facility. Corium melt was generated by induction melting in the cold crucible. The following data were obtained: heat transfer at boiling water-melt surface interaction, gas and aerosol release, post-interaction solidified corium structure. The corium melt charge had the following composition, mass%: 60% UO2+x-16% ZRO2-15% Fe2O3-6% Cr2O3-3% Ni2O3. The melt surface temperature ranged within 1920-1970 K.
