# UO$_2$-ZrO$_2$ melting in a cold crucible induction furnace : simulation and experiments

* Corresponding author
Abstract : In the field of severe accident studies for generation 2, 3 & 4 nuclear reactors, the Plinius-2 project aims to build a new facility to perform experiments of corium interactions tests at a large scale until 2020. In this context, the project, in collaboration with ECM Technologies, has to define and build a furnace able to melt up to 500 kg of different compositions of corium surrogates
