Phebus-FP is an international project aimed at providing integral data on the release and transport of fission products under severe accident conditions. The programme comprises a series of in-pile experiments conducted at CE Cadarache and jointly funded by IRSN/EdF, EC and a number of other national organisations. The fourth test in the Phebus-FP programme, FPT2, was performed in October 2000 (Ref. ). Analyses of the iodine behaviour in the containment during this test have been made using various containment chemistry codes, mainly in the framework of the Pheben 2 programme (Ref. ). This report describes the main results of the FPT2 test regarding iodine behaviour in the containment, and the current status of interpretation and understanding reached through analysis with the ASTEC/IODE, IMPAIR, INSPECT and MELCOR codes.
