Chernobyl

A nuclear engineer admits that a western style containment building would not have helped in Chernobyl disaster and would not have been able to contain the 200 tons of tnt explosion.

    That style of reactor has never been built, and never will be built, in the US so its a moot point.

    That's nuclear bombs, not nuclear reactors you mega homosexual. It's moronic Black folk like you who prevent wider spread use of nuclear power.

      I didn't say it was a nuclear bomb. The Chernobyl explosion (second one after the lid blew off) is estimated at 1 terajoule, the equivalent of 200 tons of tnt. Obviously nuclear explosions don't have various absorbers and moderators, along with no pure high enrichment.

    soviet nuke plant architects that designed their "no meltdown" nuke plant were actually functionally moronic
    then their moronic government tried to cover up the problem (prior to chernobyl)

    slav science + marxism = nuclear disaster

    The disaster would be prevented by not having socialist subhumans on the team and in the government.

      You could have also specified that it happened in part due to shoddy construction and in other part due to deliberate disregard of procedure and/or safety to conduct experiments. But your version definitely is shorter and still accurate.

    Been awhile since I've seen this but isn't his argument that Western countries don't use graphite, which was the catalyst to the explosion?

      So the rods weren't graphite tipped per say. They have graphite displacers and there is water covering both parts of the displacers.

        You did not see any graphite because it was not there.

    We have no idea how Chernobyl really exploded, there is no black box for the power plants, we only have the logs, which don't tell us what is going on in the control room or any other details, outside of witnesses recounting it, but that could be warped by the situation. There is no "smoking gun" ah ya moment where we know for certain what caused it, we can only speculate.

        We have ideas of what "may" have happened, but there is no universally accepted answer as to why. It's called historical consensus. You should learn it zoomer.

      I thought the movie explained it pretty well regardless. Mega-heat and graphite tips causing an energy surge that broke the containment. That part seems very straight-forward.
      The strangeness lay more in the events following up to it. That place got all the bad luck in the cosmos thrown at it.

        Again, it's not graphite tips, it's graphite displaced between two things of water in the rods.

          I feel like that is semantics. Material x came into contact with material y and they made an unexpected boom because of conditions set previously that went way, way out of norm.

            If there is a reaction, the rods are made of boron to absorb the neutrons to stop a chain reaction. RBK is a low encirclement reactor, which is a economically cheaper to create more energy using low encirclement, it's not "we don't do x like west because we cheap." It's literally designed to be more affordable. The graphite displace displaces water in the channels they occupy. Water is used as a moderator because it's made of hydrogen, but RBM reactors use water a a coolant, with graphite being the moderator. It's not as good as water for absorption, but it is like to absorb a neutron...

              Not all rods are going to be in the reactor normally during full power. It's basically and equilibrium to disperse power. Most of the rods out have water channels in there that absorb the neutrons and reduce the power. The graphite part acts as a bit of a counter to that to disperse the water and won't absorb as many neutrons, keeping power up. Again graphite absorbs some neutrons, just not as good as water.

                When they pressed the scram button, a rapid emergency shutdown of a nuclear reactor, the rods moved down and the graphite started displacing water at the lower section of the core. The lower section of the core was were the bad chain reaction was taking place, the water was over moderating the neutrons. The graphite has to go though the water column first increased the amount of neutrons flying around. The issue was the water at the bottom of the core and the graphite was to displace it in order to stop the over moderation. However, the graphite caused a huge sudden surge of power.

                the point I'm making is it wasn't some design flaw. The rods were made of boron, water and graphite. They were designed for low encirclement RBM reactors. It is designed to be cheaper and more effective way to get energy by doing it at a low encirclement. It wasn't some flaw they just over looked, it was purposefully built to have equal distribution of absorption and displacement. It's not "our tech is bad because it's cheap unlike west" bullshit.

              Just about every nuclear plant incident had housing for workers nearby. So I'm gonna ask again: not in your neighborhood, right?

                Stop trying to talk about things in your second language. “Not in my backyard” implies the addition of something to an existing neighborhood. If you think housing is remotely similar you just have straight up brain damage.

    You can thank israel for this. The Soviets were doing a test to see if they could continue power if they get struck by an airstrike. It was in repose to Israel bombing the Iraqi nuclear power planet.
