Mr. Yastel Yamada, a retired engineer and founder of the Fukushima Skilled Veterans Corps: Now this is a simulation carried out by Tepco of what happened in the vessel…
In the case of Fukushima, the fuel has melted down and eroded the concrete. And now Tepco says that there is some room. And they say this depth is 65 centimeters, 25 inches, but this is a simulation. No one has seen inside. Therefore, the shape of the debris is not known. This is just an assumption. And temperature is measured say 4-5 points, but the reliability of the measured temperature is very bad because of the damage inside. And furthermore sand and concrete is not uniform material like steel. It’s a mixture of stone, stand and cement.
Therefore that 65 centimeters must have, say 100 percent error, then if so the vessel bottom might be eroded, or broken.
