Nuclear reactor core melt accidents. State of knowledge
IRSN has recently published the book "Nuclear reactor core melt accidents. State of knowledge" in its Science and Technical Series.
It provides with a very extensive and comprehensive overview of the whole topic of severe accidents, including the outcomes of the more-than-thirty-year activity carried-out by IRSN in the fields of phenomenology and simulation, and incorporates the lessons learned from major accidents which occurred in the world and the results of research and studies aimed at enhancing safety of existing and future power plants, as well.
It is intended to contribute to the dissemination of the existing knowledge in this major field of endeavor and to point-out the importance of safety research in a time of fading resources.
