CHERNOBYL AZ-5 why it exploded

Follow
Mike Bell

A visual explanation of why Chernobyl's RBMK reactor exploded with meticulously modelled 3d animation without going overboard on reactor physics.

Explained are:
The role of the AZ5 emergency shutdown button The end effect design flaw
Xenon poisoning
The actions of Anatoly Dyatlov.
Graphite moderator.

The reactor lid "Elena" or upper biological shield is shown being thrown by the explosion.

The main systems are explained, reactor, coolant circulation pumps, steam separators and turbine generators.

The control room is visualized and location of the AZ5 button is shown.

The explosion scene has been simulated and recreated. There is no footage so it's my best guess of what the explosion looked like.
