Thermochemical data for reactor materialsFunded under: JRC-REACTSAFE 5C
This report describes a computer database of thermochemical properties of nuclear reactor materials, to be used for source term calculations in reactor accident codes. The structure and the content of the computer file are described. A set of thermochemical data is presented pertaining to chemical reactions occurring during severe nuclear reactor accidents and involving fuel (uranium dioxide), fission products and structural materials. These data are complementary to those collected in the databook recently published by Cordfunke and Potter. The present data were collected from review articles and databanks and follow a discussion on the uncertainties and errors involved in the calculation of complex chemical equilibria in the extrapolated temperature range.
