Summer School on Nuclear Reactors “Physics, Fuels and Systems”


The Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School on Nuclear Reactors “Physics, Fuels and Systems”

The 23rd session of the Frédéric Joliot/Otto Hahn (FJOH) Summer School on “Nuclear Reactors Physics, Fuels, and Systems” will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany, from August 23 to September 1, 2017. This session is entitled Uncertainties in nuclear reactor systems analysis: Improving understanding, confidence and quantification. It is an advanced course aimed at junior as well as experienced scientists and engineers engaged in the broad field of nuclear sciences, engineering and technologies.

The FJOH-2017 objective is to help the school participants broaden their knowledge of uncertainty assessment for the design, operation and safety of complex technological systems such as nuclear reactors. The overall course will describe methods for estimating and propagating statistical and systematic errors, VVUQ methodologies and best practices, the main challenges and limitations, expected improvements and current R&D trends.
