Abstract

The experimental activity described in this document is part of the Corium Interactions and Thermochemistry (CIT) Project, in the framework program of the Nuclear Fission Safety.
JRC Ispra and ENEA-ERG Ispra investigated the chemical interaction between UO2 and molten FeO and the kinetics of the reaction. Exploratory tests were performed using UP2 auto-crucible, containing FeO pellets, inductively heated in inert reaction times.
Post test analysis includes: sectioning and polishing of sample, optical microscopy and SEM with EDX analysis. Results and conclusions are presented. .
