In the FPT-3 test, a B4C control rod will be used instead of the silver-indium-cadmium absorber rod used in the previous experiments. The impact of the B4C (oxidation, interaction with the stainless steel clad) has been analised in order to design the test section. In order to define the test scenario a simple B4C oxidation model has been implemented in the ICARE2 code. Experimental and analytical works on the B4C oxidation are on going.
