Abstract

Accidents in Nuclear Power Plants have the potential for tremendous impact on the population and the environment. This has been specifically true for those events which evolved into severe accidents, noticeably Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, i.e., the key topic for the present chapter. These accidents deserved and received deep attention from the scientific and technological community: in each case thousands of documents have been published.
