The humanoid is investigated for the mechanical and physical aspect in the nuclear disaster, especially for a severe accident, which includes the core melting. There are some mechanical studies of the leg and hand of the humanoid in which the human mimicking features are described. The management of the task is accomplished by the three regional preparations. The robot is made of the radiation-resistance substance. Therefore, it could work on the normal task of a human for the removal of the broken debris in a collapsed building. However, there is a limitation for the use in the reactor core building due to very high temperature of the nuclear fuel. The regional classification of the site is studied for the practical purposes. The post-accident analysis is accompanied with multidisciplinary research for the humanoid development in the nuclear industry.
Key words: robot, humanoid, nuclear power plant , disaster, safety
