Keywords:Severe Accident, Lower head of RPV, Molten corium, CFD

It is important to analyze the thermal hydraulics of the molten fuel pool for the analysis of lower head failure in severe accidents. In this study, the temperature and velocity distributions in the molten fuel pool and the heat flux on the wall of the RPV were investigated by simulating the BALI Experiment.
