Thanks for the post, but I’ll be damned before I hang out near that plant.

Thanks for the information. I haven't had time to read the whole article and am wondering if their spent-fuel facilities are safe. They have over fifty nuclear plants so there must be a lot of waste somewhere.

Afterthought . . . maybe your knowledge could be used in a constructive way to clean up the mess (among others) left at Hanford, Washington.

The Japanese BWRs do not have a core catcher. There is nothing like that incorporated in GE’s design unless it was some sort of add-on. At TMI the internals in the reactor including the fuel rods, control rods and the stainless steel rack support structures completely melted. All of that ended up in the bottom of the reactor looking like a pile of rubble. The reactor (4” thick steel) was never breached.

I bow to your excellent post.

Love the fact that the material has a half life of mere seconds and is not really a threat.

Further, the entire containment system and Dr. Oehmen’s explanation is superb.

Now I can go on about my day and give a quick tutorial to others, hopefully giving them ease of mind.

Very informative.

Can anyone verify there is, in fact, a 3rd containment at the reactor in question?
