Modelling and simulant experiments of severe accident phenomena (MOSES): MOSES summary report

Ilona Lindholm

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


    MOSES project has systematically investigated phases of severe reactor accidents relevant to Finnish nuclear power plants. The specific areas of research have been pressure vessel failure mode, core debris coolability, fission product behavior, including chemistry, containment thermal hydraulic loading, especially hydrogen detonations and phenomena relevant for long-term severe accident management. The outcome of the project has been novel analysis tools, procedures and tools to perform multi-diciplinary analyses and new experimental results reducing noticeably uncertainties that existed in the field of severe accidents.
