Fukushima Meltdown Took Place on March 11th-12th

Post by MvRaM on Mon May 16, 2011 5:24 pm




After confirming that a meltdown has taken place in reactor 1 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has released analysis on when and how the meltdown took place. They believe that the fuel began to melt only a few hours after the March 11th earthquake, and that it had almost completely melted down by the morning of the 12th:


Preliminary analysis shows that No. 1 had already entered a critical state by 6:50 a.m. on March 12, with most of its fuel having melted and fallen to the bottom of the pressure vessel, the plant operator said. Tepco released data Thursday showing some of the fuel rods had melted.

The reactor automatically halted operations immediately after the 2:46 p.m. quake, but the water level in the reactor dropped and the temperature began rising at around 6 p.m. The damage to the fuel rods had begun by 7:30 p.m., with most of them having melted by 6:50 a.m. the following day, the utility said.

Since March, TEPCO had made statements acknowledging the possibility that fuel had melted in reactor 1, initially estimating that 70% of the fuel had suffered damage. They based those estimates on data from a water level monitoring gauge. A few days ago, they discovered that the gauge was faulty, so they have re-assessed the situation, estimating that nearly all of the fuel has melted.

They have also said that it is very possible that similar meltdowns have occurred in reactors 2 and 3.

Good explanation from an expert about how radiation from Japan is effecting and could effect us here in the united states. And just how radiation fallout works in general.

A little bit of an overview on the condition of the reactors. And a bit of a look on some of the United States reactors and our capibility of handling a situation like Fukishima, which continues to get worse. Something still pretty serious is the condition of the completely melted rods in reactor 1.

You know how it goes with these things. Its the centre of attention for a while and then it goes over. But certainly not forgotten.

well I just thought of this as something quite important and then I left to cuba but when I came back it was as if it had never happened and I was surprised, I mean, when this shit started everybody was so serious and worried and always updating this thread. Well, I just want a brief update on what has happened so far mostly cuz I'm too lazy to look it up myself, besides, mv and spor are the experts...

I don't think we forgot, is just that we don't have time to update this anymore.

I didn't.

And yeah, I have time to update a silly thread. Nobodys time is that strict.

it's kinda monotonous to post the same update daily because the situation there hasn't changed. It's gone from fucked, to totally fucked. Happy?

You can just look on Google instead of being a lazy fuck in 2 threads.
