MOCKA (Large-scale experiments on molten corium concrete interaction)
- to investigate the corium/concrete interaction in an anticipated core melt accident in LWRs, after the metal melt is layered beneath the oxide melt
- cavity formation in the basement and the risk of a long-term basement penetration by the metallic part of the melt
- Different types of concrete: siliceous, siliceous/limestone, limestone and basaltic
- With and without reinforced concrete
