OMICS International organises 3000+ Global Conferenceseries Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

The Application of RCS Depressurization to Prevent Core Melting in Case of Very Small LOCA in Nuclear Reactors

A very small LOCA (in capacity of Pressure and Inventory Control (PIC) system) along of reactor coolant system (RCS)-outside core area and without operator actions to earliest and manual shutdown the reactor (not so much time for action), even all the safety systems are available, can go to a severe phase. The previous work describes a new method to prevent the core melting in the pressure tube reactors. The accident analysis using the developed model (ASQR) strengthens the importance of the inside cooling of the fuel channels in order to prevent severe accidents, despite those methods related to moderator as the last heat sink, these are not sufficient.
