Spent fuel behaviour under severe accident conditions

The severe accident code MELCOR was used to investigate the spent fuel in spent fuel pools under different severe accident conditions. The international Sandia Fuel Project delivered data for the code validation under spent fuel pool conditions and these knowledge was used to calculate and interpret the response of spent fuel elements under loss-of-cooling and loss-of-coolant conditions. The results of this work were presented at different international meetings and conferences.
