The Phebus-FP programme investigates severe accidents in LWRs from the point of view of consequence assessment and the evaluation of possible accident mitigation measures. The first test was performed in December 1993 with very lightly irradiated fuel. Interpretation of the experimental data is reported, concentrating largely on the bundle section, for which a comprehensive set of experimental data exists, complemented by a series of tomographs. The later sections of the report discuss the analytical effort aimed at preparing subsequent tests of this series, particularly FPT1 planned for May 1995.
