When a severe accident occurs, decommissioning work becomes important task. In the decommissioning work after the severe accident, establishing the way to estimate the sedimentation place of molten debris is important. However, the technique to estimate exactly sedimentation place has not been enough. Therefore, the detailed and phenomenological numerical simulation code named JUPITER for predicting the molten core behavior is under development. The comparison between experimental and numerical results is necessary to clarify the validity of the numerical analysis code. This study provides the experimental data for a BWR to examine the numerical simulation code in order to contribute to progress of the decommissioning work.
