The term severe accident management describes those actions that would be taken by the operating personnel of a nuclear power plant during an accident that could result in significant damage to a reactor core. Such an accident occurred on March 28, 1979, at the Three Mile Island Unit 2 (TMI-2) nuclear plant. This book captures and interprets the varied and numerous insights related to severe accident management that can be gleaned from the TMI-2 accident.
