Analysis of corium recovery concepts by the EUROCORE group

Project ID: FIKS-CT-1999-20003
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


The objective of the EUROCORE (European Group for Analysis of Corium Recovery Concepts) Concerted Action is to obtain a clear view of the state of the art for melt stabilisation as considered in accident management schemes and to better identify research and development needs. Five different melt stabilisation concepts have been discussed: In-vessel retention with external cooling, core-concrete interaction with top cooling, ex-vessel spreading with top flooding, water injection by bottom flooding, and crucible concept with sacrificial material. For each concept, main unresolved problems are discussed in this paper and recommended R&D actions are outlined. The project started on March 1srt 2000 and ended February 28th, 2002.
