Structural order of formation and systematization of primary experimental data within the IAS is presented in Figure 1.
The IAS includes three main blocks:
- experimental test-benches;
The “Test-Benches” block contains information about ANGARA and VCG-135 test-benches in text and graphic formats. The sections also include an installation description, containing information about period of experimental installation operation, manufacturer, design and engineering documentation for the main units and systems of the installations. Information in subsections is stored in text and graphic formats with a possibility of displaying in PDF.
The second block consists information about experiments on simulation of in-vessel (IVR-AM, INVECOR Projects) and out-of-vessel (Fukushima Debris, COTELS, CORMIT, CORMIT-Ph2 Projects) melt retention, including:
- initial data – set of parameters which are very from series to series of experiments (Figure 2);
- results of direct measurements – such data, registered by information and measurement systems, as temperature, pressure, coolant flow for cooling systems and electrical characteristics of test-bench (Figure 3);
- results of material research - data on high-temperature interaction between model corium and materials of the reactor vessel, melt receiver (MR), materials of protective coatings of the MR, spacer grids, absorber rods, coolant, etc. The interaction between corium and structural materials of the reactor is researched by performing a comprehensive analysis, including a visual analysis of the state of components of an experimental assembly, model melt and structural materials (Figure 4).
In the third block, data will be processed for preparing and conducting experiments, as well as during analysis of the results of material research. This block includes functions of calculations, graph plotting, table formation, at the same time, to obtain a certain amount of information on one experiment or to compare the results of several experiments, a protocol is formed in one document, which combines a set of experiment parameters contained in the IAS in the form of graphs, photos, data tables.
