The paper comments on certain results of the first test of the Phebus FP programme and outlines the objectives of the forthcoming experiments. Fission products, their release from the degraded fuel, their transport in the reactor cooling system, their deposition in the containment are being investigated with a special emphasis on the production of volatile iodine in the containment. The study of the less volatile fission product behaviour under the extremely high temperature conditions reached in Phebus is also a major objective of the programme.
