Source: KPFT Houston, If You Love This Planet Radio
Date: Aug 31, 2012
Description: This week, Dr. Caldicott brings on nuclear engineer Arnold Gundersen  [...]

At 32:00 in

Gundersen: Interesting, there was a Japanese study calling the explosion in Unit 3 a detonation not a deflagration.

There’s no containment in the world that can withstand a detonation shockwave.

That’s something the nuclear industry doesn’t want to address.

[...]

Unit 1′s had an explosion but it was a deflagration. Unit 3′s explosion, by authorities other than Arnie  Gundersen, are now calling it a detonation… That means the shockwave travels faster than the speed of sound and it cracked the concrete or the steel

[...]

Caldicott: But it was related to the nuclear fuel?

Gundersen: Yes, but the rate it which it grew I won’t call it a nuclear explosion.
