    AHMED (Aerosol and Heat Transfer Measurement Device) has been constructed to study thermal-hydraulic effects on aerosol behaviour in nuclear power station containment during a hypothetical severe reactor accident where the reactor core melts and releases radioactive aerosols into containment. The objective of the work is to understand the reasons for observed large discrepancies between the results from model calculations and measurements carried out in large scale experiments (aerosol modelling, uncertainties in thermal-hydraulic conditions or measurements errors).
