[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 8  

post #71 of 2836
They're explaining on BBC how the reactor cooling works
It is no different than PC water cooling it seems, just I don't think you have to worry as much about leaks since the pipes are likely stronger
What basically happened is the pump stopped

If this actually affects Canada, what do?

Yeah a bit extreme at this point as this is nothing like Chernobyl. We don't even know if the reactor's pressure vessel has been compromised.

This is not the time or place for cooling jokes; it's in very poor taste to make light of the situation as whatever occurs as a result of this incident could determine what direction Japan heads for nuclear power.

At the bottom of the page there's a quick diagram of how the cooling system works for those wondering. This makes this likely a steam explosion.

White smoke.... Seems likely that this was a steam explosion.
Which probably means it has something to do with the cooling system.
Which, by extension, would affect the reactor core itself.

Looking at the videos of the explosion it does look like a steam explosion is the most likely cause of the collapse. It occurred during/shortly after a strong aftershock so I wonder what was damaged to cause all this.

They were trying to release some pressure at the time of the explosion, so yes, I'm also hedging on it being a steam explosion.

I think we can agree on that. The main question is whether steam was the only thing that got out.
