Summary

Considering new design data and based on analysis of events and processes occurred in room 305/2 at stage of production and spread of Chornobyl lavas, an estimate was made of nuclear fuel distribution in this room. The estimate was made for 7 separate and typical areas. When estimating, the both data were taken into account of analyses of samples taken in room 305/2, and analysis results of samples retrieved from adjacent rooms. Total amount of irradiated nuclear fuel in room 305/2, according to analysis carried out, makes on uranium 80   30 t, that is purely comparable with the results of earlier researches.
