Abstract

Iodine chemistry and vapour-aerosol interactions have been identified as key uncertainties in modelling severe accidents in nuclear plant. The objectives of this study were to develop a better understanding of such behaviour and to incorporate he findings into a model. Experimental work has been conducted in conjunction with theoretical studies and code analyses. Calculations made with the codes give good agreement with the experimental data, providing confidence in their application to plant studies. This work should aid in reducing uncertainties associated with the assessment of the consequences of severe reactor accidents.
