Abstract

The FARO programme of JRC Ispra includes three main activities centred on the FARO facility: large-scale melt quenching experiments, small-scale KROTOS FCI tests, code development and test analysis. Five tests performed involved 3 kg of prototypical core materials (80 w/o UO(2) + 20 w/o ZrO(2)) and one test involved 1.5 kg of simulant (A1(2)O(3)). Modelling and test analysis focused on the development and validation of the JRC Ispra COMETA computer codes and the University of Wisconsin TEXAS-III code. The FARO and KROTOS tests were then analysed using these codes. The paper presents the recent results and progress in each activity.
