NEST Hydrogen Containment Experiments for Reactor Safety (HYMERES) Project
Joint project

NEST HYMERES (Hydrogen containment experiments for reactor safety) project is addressing safety relevant phenomena in containments during accidents. It offers hands-on training opportunity during the experimental test campaigns carried at the PSI PANDA facility, one of the most advanced containment test facility.

In parallel, it also aims to develop exploratory research projects under the guidance of experts at participating organisations, in particular within the universities.


Leading organisation: PSI, Switzerland

Participant organisations: University of Stuttgart, Germany, Oregon State University, USA, Texas A&M University, USA, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden (non-NEST member), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain (non-NEST member), Université d’Orléans, France, Seoul National University, Korea, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH), Switzerland.
