Remember that the lower head is filled with sea salt.

Thus, the melt that relocates to the lower head will be mixed with a lot of sea salt.

Do we understand what impact the salt has (or doesn’t have) on steam explosion dynamics?

Brian:

Attached is the preliminary FCI analysis that would like to provide to NRC Op Center in case question on FCI is received. If you are at the Op Center, please provide to them.
Shortly, thereafter I will provide it to John Kelly.

Thanks, Richard
