Abstract:

Some basic problems concerning melting plates under conditions which may be expected in nuclear reactors are considered. These include the development of an exact analytical solution for a plate melting under the action of internal heat generation, an outline of an approximate solution for the same problem, an estimate of the time required for total melting and the construction of a lower bound for that time. The defromations of the melting plate are then treated, and the accuracy of the use of a purely elastic analysis is assessed. Author
