This book contains the proceedings from the FISA-95 symposium. The work programme of this Reinforced Concerted Action (RCA) on reactor safety addressed three main areas. Area 1 covers accident progression analysis (ie the study of in-vessel and out-of-vessel phenomena due to severe accident scenarios). Area 2 covers behaviour and qualification of the containment system in order to evaluate the safety margins; and area 3 covers accident management supports. At this symposium the emphasis was on progress made in the understanding of severe accident phenomena and sequences, and the application of this to measure for accident prevention and mitigation. Conclusions are drawn about open areas of research needed for better understanding severe accident phenomena and for developing advance accident management techniques.
