NHK TV (Jap) @POLIMI to investigate Fukushima event

Japanese main TV NHK World broadcasted reports on Fukushima accident, based on experiments performed at SIET labs (Piacenza) in collaboration with POLIMI-NRGroup and japanese IAE (Institute of Applied Energy).

For two years, NHK asked IAE, NRGroup and SIET to investigate the sequence of the accident and two key events occurred during the event.

2013: Experiment on possible bypass in the piping route during water injection into the core melting in Unit 3.
