The objective of the project is to examine advanced measuring methods for on-line determination of aerosol, thermohydraulic and hydrogen parameters for their usefulness in the French core melting programme PHEBUS FP. Advanced methods that are known from reactor safety programmes as well as novel measuring techniques used in related fields such as fuel reprocessing and in non nuclear process technology are described and analysed with a view to their potential application in the planned tests. Possible necessary further developments and modifications are identified and approaches to solution are outlined. Special emphasis is put on the present state of radiation resistant optical fibre wave- guides, which might be integrated in several instruments. As regards the particularly important on-line aerosol measurements in PHEBUS FP, a combined system is recommended as the most promising further development. This novel system configuration comprises the mass monitor of a MESA dust monitoring system and one or several photometers of EIR design.
