Core melt stabilization (COMESTA): COMESTA summary report

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional

Abstract

COMESTA project has investigated core melt behavior in a severe accident. Experiments have been conducted both at VTT and in international projects on the subjects of molten core - concrete interactions, melt pool coolability and steam explosions. Competence for computational modeling of severe accidents has been developed.
