The TMI accident in 1979 motivated an interest in LWR source terms and resulted in the production of a supplement to the first state of the art report (SOAR) which concentrated on LWR aerosol issues. The second SOAR dealt with primary system FP release and transport that covers vapor the condensation on aerosols and aerosol agglomeration. The present third SOAR was prepared focusing on aerosol behavior in both the primary circuit and in containment such as mechanical resuspension, impact of chemistry, re-vaporization of deposits, charge effect, removal by spray, hydrogen-burn effects on suspended aerosols, penetration of aerosols through leak paths and so on. A large number of probabilistic safety analysis (PSA level 2) plant studies have been performed around the world, frequently involving aspects of aerosol behavior. This report provides some examples, including sensitivity studies that demonstrate the impact of aerosol-related processes.
