Analysis of the nuclear reactor core of Chernobyl Power Plant for 5 seconds before explosion with three-dimensional spherical space
Keywords:nuclear power plant, Chornobyl disaster, critical operation mode, regression analysis, void and water environment
AbstractThis research analyzed the water flow and bubble (void) of nuclear reactor core of Chernobyl Power Plant, for 5 seconds before the explosion, using a mathematical model of two-dimensional spherical coordinates. To solve the problem, we considered this phenomenon as an analogy of Newtonian gravity theory, which had been solved in Schwarzchild Solution. As a result, the calculated radius of the spherical space of water and bubble indicated the maximum limit, at which the reactor core lost the control of reactor power. And, then, a regression analysis, with exponential model, confirmed the influence of bubble and water to the reactor’s power.
