Criticality Accident
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Criticality accidents are divided into one of two categories: Process incidents, where controls in place to prevent virtually any criticality are breached; and Reactor accidents, where deliberately achieved criticality inside a nuclear reactor will become uncontrollable. A criticality accident is an uncontrolled nuclear chain reaction. It is sometimes referred to as a critical excursion or a critical power excursion.
