Experimental Assessment of GOTHIC Code for Local Hydrogen Combustion Analysis
Hydrogen combustion is one of the critical issues for ensuring the ultimate safety of nuclear power plants (NPPs), because substantial amounts of hydrogen generated under severe accident could cause an hydrogen combustion which influences the global containment integrity and safety-related equipments survivability.
