TIME-DEPENDENT RELEASE OF GASEOUS MATERIAL FROM A THREE-BARRIER REACTOR CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

The problem of time-dependent release of gaseous activity from a three-barrier containment system is formulated. The three-barrier model is made up of the reactor core and two containment structures all in series. Analytical solutions are obtained of the release rate to the atmosphere for two special cases. A graphical solution is given for the special case of step release from the reactor core; examples are given to illustrate the use of the graphical solution. (Author)
