The results of implementation of the ISTC Project “Development of a Model of the Behavior of Nuclear Fuel in the Active Stage of the Chernobyl Accident” are summarized. The project work was jointly undertaken by the Russian Research Centre Kurchatov Institute (RNTs KI) and Nuclear Safety Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences (IBRAE RAN). The aim of the project was to systematize a huge amount of data on lava-like fuel-containing materials (LFCM), collected over the 20 years of research work at… 
Synthesis, characterisation and corrosion behaviour of simulant Chernobyl nuclear meltdown materials
Understanding the physical and chemical properties of materials arising from nuclear meltdowns, such as the Chernobyl and Fukushima accidents, is critical to supporting decommissioning operations and
The model of microstructure evolution of lava-like fuel-containing materials (LFCM) in Unit 4 of the Chornobyl NPP has been updated by an example of brown ceramics. It was confirmed that the behavior
Specific features of radioactive aerosols in subreactor rooms of the shelter object of Chernobyl NPP
Data on the radionuclide composition, volume activity, and dispersity of aerosols taken in 2010–2014 using Petryanov’s filters in rooms 012/7, 012/15, and 210/7 of the Shelter object, into which the
Safely probing the chemistry of Chernobyl nuclear fuel using micro-focus X-ray analysis
Detailed chemical analysis of the solidified molten fuel still residing in the stricken Chernobyl reactor unit 4 are inferred using multi-modal micro-focus X-ray analysis of a low-radioactivity
Chemical characterisation of degraded nuclear fuel analogues simulating the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident
The Fukushima Daiichi accident generated degraded nuclear fuel material, mixed with other reactor components, known as molten core-concrete interaction (MCCI) material. Simulant MCCI material was
The Uses of Robots in Nuclear Power Plant and MHRD Initiation for Implementation of Awareness in Robotic Technology in India – Part 1.
The meltdown position of the uranium reactors in Chernobyl and Fukushima Daichii power plant is described and the need for the development of the Robot to find out the meltdown positions of the reactor is described.
Corium Experimental Thermodynamics: A Review and Some Perspectives
More than 30 years of experimental data production in the field of corium thermodynamics is reviewed, finding the most pressing need for improved chemical models is identified with condensed phase mixtures to model the corium progression.
Mathematical model of the process of electrodiffusion of radionuclides in lavalike fuel-containing materials
We propose a model for the quantitative description of the diffusion of radioactive admixtures in fuel-containing materials based on the analysis of the processes of electrolytic dissociation and
An introduction to serious nuclear accident chemistry
Abstract A review of the chemistry occurring inside a nuclear power plant during a serious reactor accident is presented. This includes some aspects of the behavior of nuclear fuel, its cladding,
