Abstract

Naval ships are designed to function under very difficult circumstances. The most common cases of nuclear ship incidents/accidents are collisions, problems with the nuclear power reactor, groundings, fires and explosions as well as leaks in the sea-water systems of submarines. Accidental release to air caused by criticality or core melt is considered a real radiological hazard. This study consists of two parts; first part aims at estimating the core inventory of the suggested accident due to melting of nuclear fuel in the ship's power reactor using a Radiological Assessment System for Consequence Analysis (RASCAL) code.
