Iodine chemistry and mitigation methods (ICHEMM): Final synthesis report

Project ID: FIKS-CT-1999-00008
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


Organisations from seven countries have been involved in an integrated programme of experiments, analysis and code development. Experimental measurements produced data for volatile iodine destruction or transmutation reactions which are not routinely included in severe accident iodine chemistry codes. The measurements also provide new experimental data on iodine behaviour under conditions specific to BWR containments under accident conditions. This programme has produced an extensive body of new data which can be used to validate iodine chemistry models under a range of conditions of relevance to severe reactor accidents. Various new models have also been developed during the course of the work that can be used in plant studies to improve the reliability of source-term assessments.
