French term or phrase:fusion en pression
"Plusieurs risques sont associés à la fusion en pression, parmi lesquels le risque lié à I'échauffement direct de I'enceinte, le risque de perte d'étanchéité de I'enceinte suite aux effets mécaniques sur la cuve et le risque d'endommagement des matériels nécessaires à la gestion des accidents graves consécutif à I'impact d'un transport de corium sur ces matériels."
Nuclear fusion requires high temperatures, and even higher temperatures if the pressure is low (or normal, at atmospheric pressure). Where the boundary between "low" and "high" pressure lies in this field I cannot say, but if they are talking about "pression", then it has to be "high" pressure, be it relative to no pressure at all, to atmospheric pressure, or to moderately above-atmospheric pressure, etc.
