To support the 1F decommissioning project, the Institute of Applied Energy has been analyzing the course of the accident using the SAMPSON code with an aim to grasp radionuclide distribution in 1F NPP. The present study has mainly focused on molybdenum release from a fuel pellet and chemical forms of iodine during the early phase of the accident because a release rate of semi-volatile FPs has various uncertainties. The present simulation set the detrimental factor of molybdenum used in FP release model as a sensitive parameter. The simulation results indicate that more molybdenum release causes more generation of hydrogen iodide and more deposition of iodine inside Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) because the adsorption velocity of hydrogen iodide is comparatively higher than deposition velocities of another FPs.
