Proc. ASME. ICONE21, Volume 3: Nuclear Safety and Security; Codes, Standards, Licensing and Regulatory Issues; Computational Fluid Dynamics and Coupled Codes, V003T06A045, July 29–August 2, 2013
Paper No: ICONE21-16526
... In nuclear safety, the source term is introduced to provide adequate isolation of the nuclear hazards from the public, by establishing a concept of ‘effective distance.’ This combines a geographical distance to the site boundary and an effective ‘distance’ with the use of engineered safety...

Paper No: ICONE20-POWER2012-54258
... in this paper, the iodine source term has been evaluated for two-loop PWR under severe accident initiated due to LOCA. The TMI-2 reactor is considered as the reference reactor. The modeling and simulations are carried out by developing a MATLAB base program that uses the post-accident conditions and...

... spring-plenum region of the LWR fuel. If successful this innovation can be implemented in existing and next generation LWRs and may: • reduce accident source term (releasable FPGs); • enhance reactor safety and acceptance; • extend fuel life suppressing clad swelling and fuel failure; • reduce thermal...

... iodine thus influencing the iodine source term. Even low conversion rates might lead to a significant influence on the concentration of gaseous iodine in the early phase of an accident where high CsI/I 2 ratios of 100:1 or even higher can be expected. In the frame of the German national THAI programme...

... response inside the containment compartments, release and accumulation of H2 and fission product (FP) source terms, their leakage into environment were simulated and investigated. The effectiveness of preventive and mitigative measures, such as dedicated core depressurization system (DCDS), passive...
