  1. an accident in a nuclear reactor where the fuel overheats and melts the reactor core
  2. a chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.
  3. The part in the containment building where the fuel rods come together to begin the chain reaction, and where the control rods are placed in between the fuel rods to slow the chain reactions
  4. under the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction
