When a spacecraft embarks on a 30-year mission to the outer galaxy, how can we assess whether it is capable of surviving the harsh conditions it will encounter?
One possible answer is by tapping into the accumulated materials science knowledge of the nuclear industry

Calculational evolution helps in bringing together different aspects of nuclear physics, namely “nuclear reaction theory” and “reactor physics”.

15 Mar 2021 | Jacobs

Graphite bricks are used in the core of all of the UK's Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors (AGRs). Jacobs is deeply engaged in the programme of work to increase understanding of the cores’ tolerance to damage as they age.

In light of the licensing of the ALFRED demonstrator by the Romanian regulator CNCAN, ENEA, as member of the FALCON Consortium, is prepapring the relevant software tools for their qualification. A rigourous approach, based on the guidelines and best practices in place in the European context, has been followed and applied to the validation case of the subchannel code ANTEO+, used in the thermal-hydraulics analyses of the fuel assemblies

15 Mar 2021 | PSI

Combining IC’s capabilities for speciation analysis and the new ICP-OES for swift and reliable wastewater analysis, the PSI hotlab now offers a comprehensive set-up for routine wastewater examinations providing future autonomy from external contractors for wastewater management.

15 Mar 2021 | Jacobs

Frederic Wheeler was appointed as Head of the Regulatory Support Directorate within Jacobs in April 2020.

15 Mar 2021 | ENEA

In the framework of the IAEA CRP (I31033) an uncertainty quantification exercise is currently under development based on test-6 of the QUENCH experimental facility and ENEA is participating. The current status of the ENEA activity is here summarized.

15 Mar 2021 | ENEA

Monitoring chlorine cycle in environmental matrices is important to better characterize the reference state and the water cycle for the predisposal planning of radioactive waste. Methods and protocols for 36Cl  analysis in environment have to be tested in order to monitor  the performance of the radioactive waste repository.
