  • The concept of external cooling of core melt by cavity flooding has been considered a desirable means of decay heat removal during a severe core-meltdown accident in an advanced light water reactor. In this concept, the decay heat generated in the melt is removed from the external bottom surface of the reactor vessel by downward facing boiling of water in the flooded cavity. The feasibility of this concept depends largely on the critical heat flux on the bottom surface of the reactor vessel. For the case in which the critical heat flux is higher than the local heat flux frommore » the core melt, nucleate boiling will be the prevailing mode of heat transfer. The wall temperatures can be maintained well below the failure temperature of the steel structure. However, if the downward facing boiling situation and the thermal loading conditions are such that the local heat flux from the core melt exceeds the critical heat flux, then transition to film boiling will occur on the external bottom surface. Under such circumstances, the wall temperatures could rise rapidly toward the failure temperature of the steel structure, and the integrity of the reactor lower head could be severely jeopardized.« less
  • This paper reports on sintering behavior of mixed {alpha}{prime}/{beta}{prime} sialon ceramics, fabricated from {alpha} - Si{sub 3}N{sub 4}, AlN and Ln{sub 2}O{sub 3} (Y{sub 2}O{sub 3}, Er{sub 2}O{sub 3} and Yb{sub 2}O{sub 3}), and discusses the densification process by considering the chemical reactions to form {alpha}{prime} - and {beta}{prime} - sialon and the kinetical analysis of shrinkage. The quantity and character of the intergranular phase in mixed {alpha}{prime}/{beta}{prime} sialon ceramics are also evaluated by internal friction measurements.
  • On behalf of the BABAR and Belle collaborations, the authors report on the measurement of the angle {gamma} and of the sum of angles 2{beta} + {gamma} of the Unitarity Triangle.
