Modelling and simulant experiments of severe accident phenomena (MOSES): Mechanical behaviour of reactor pressure vessel in severe accident

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

    Abstract

    This article describes the main achievements in developing methodology for analysing mechanical behaviour of pressure vessels with and without penetrations at high temperatures related to accident scenarios. Validation and applications of the methodology are presented.
