    … If cooling is inadequate during a reactor accident, a significant amount of core material could become molten and relocate to the lower head of the reactor vessel, as happened in the Three Mile Island Unit 2 accident. … In such a case, concerns about containment failure and associated risks can be eliminated if it is possible to ensure that the lower head remains intact so that relocated core materials are retained within the vessel. …

  • The role of shivering thermogenesis and total body insulation in core cooling rate.

    MEKJAVIC Igor B. , MITTLEMAN Karen D. , KAKITSUBA Naoshi

    … Rectal temperature cooling rate (Tre) is a consequence of an imbalance between heat production and heat loss mechanisms. … It is concluded that relating core temperature cooling rate simply to the insulative adipose layer is inadequate. … On the basis of the present results, it is suggested that the following variables be taken into account when attempting to model cooling rate of immersed individuals : 1) The rate of heat production. …

  • Application of New Coolant Inventory Tracking Method to PWR Small Break LOCA Simulation Experiments at ROSA-IV/LSTF.

    SUZUKI Mitsuhiro

    … Presented are results of an application of a new primary coolant inventory tracking method which was invented for a Westinghouse-type pressurized water reactor, to various kinds of small break loss-of-coolant accident experiments conducted at the Large-Scale Test Facility in Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute.<BR>The uniqueness of this method is that it can track the primary coolant depletion prior to the initiation of inadequate core cooling. …
