wandering around nuclear pages (don't ask, I don't know why either), I came across a small table of technical terms used and what they mean:

Transient - a malfunction
Event - malfunction
Scram - unscheduled shutdown
Abnormal evolution - failure to function properly
Normal aberration - malfunction
Unauthorized diversion - theft
Rapid oxidation - fire
Power excursions - out of control
Unplanned hypercriticality - out of control
Spontaneous energetic disassembly - explosion
Nuclear bonus material - waste
