the fuel does not necessarily correspond to the source term however, as the retention processes, particularly in the reactor coolant system and reactor containment, have a significant impact. Predicting the retention of the fission products is challenging since their behaviour during reactor incidents is to a large extent probabilistic. In other words, it is strongly dependent on the sequence of events, and thus difficult to generalize, requiring effects and processes on the microscale (gas and… CONTINUE READING
