- The objective of the project reported is to experimentally and analytically study the dominant mechanisms in fuel coolant thermal interactions which could lead to vapor explosions. Exploration of mechanisms is focused in two areas: (1) mechanisms responsible for fragmentation in molten metal droplet experiments (including the proposed Spontaneous Nucleation Mechanism), and (2) thermal stress initiated fracture as a fragmentation mechanism (this mechanism is not considered responsible for the fragmentation of molten metal drops).
