The objective of the project is to draw up an instrumentation plan for the French core melting programme PHEBUS FP. The instrumentation plan aims to include proven and reliable instruments for recording various thermohydraulic, aerosol and hydrogen phenomena. The candidate measuring methods, which are known mainly from reactor safety programmes, are described and examined for their usefulness in PHEBUS. Each method and instrument is described in detail from various aspects, such as measuring principle, measuring range, technical design, evaluation model, calibration procedure, accuracy, previous experience and commercial availability. Special attention is paid to the behaviour of the measuring transducers when exposed to radiation. The performance of the instruments is compared with the requirements of PHEBUS. The results of this comparison serve as the basis for a measuring concept in tabular form, giving the locations of the measurements, the measuring tasks, and the number and kind of instruments that are recommended. Redundancy and cost benefit aspects are taken into account in qualitative terms.
