    Abstract : Tungsten (W) based materials can be used in fusion reactors due to several advantages. Different fabrication routes can be applied to develop tungsten materials with intended microstructure and properties for specific application including nanostructured grades. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment and improvements of thermal-hydraulic correlations and methods for the analysis of the Jules Horowitz Reactor

    Author : Alberto Ghione; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flow instability; Uncertainty; Narrow channels; Jules Horowitz Reactor; Safety analysis; Critical heat flux; Thermal-hydraulic correlations; Heat transfer; Best-Estimate; Material Testing Reactor;

    Abstract : Nuclear research reactors are used to test materials for current and future nuclear technologies, and to produce radioisotopes for medical purposes. Most of the existing Material Testing Reactors in Europe have operated for more than 50 years and new ones are needed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Long-Term Losses in Prestressed Concrete Structures - Application for Nuclear Reactor Containments

    Author : Peter Lundqvist; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; KstrConcrete; Nuclear reactor containments; prestressed concrete; prestress losses; bonded tendons; creep; shrinkage; relaxation; prediction models; resonance frequency; acoustoelasticity.;

    Abstract : Most nuclear reactors, both in Sweden and worldwide, are enclosed by a prestressed concrete containment. The main purpose of the containment is to prevent any radioactive discharge to the environment in the event of a major internal accident. READ MORE
