Nuclear Engineering and Design, an international journal devoted to all aspects of Nuclear Fission Energy, published a special issue in August on Thermal-Hydraulics of Innovative Nuclear Systems. In particular it contains 15 papers selected from the contributions presented at the THINS-2014 workshop.
THINS (Thermal-Hydraulics of Innovative Nuclear Systems) is an EU project that ran from 2010 to January 2015. It focused on crosscutting issues of thermal-hydraulics in several innovative systems, including five GEN-IV concepts, i.e. SFR,…
SCK•CEN will be organising a Summer School on Heavy Liquid Metal from 15 to 19 June 2015.
Heavy liquid metal (HLM) coolants offer new perspectives for the development of innovative nuclear systems for materials research, nuclear waste transmutation and energy production. The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) is at the forefront of HLM nuclear technology worldwide with the development of the MYRRHA accelerator driven system.
During this summer school, participants will gain insight into the…
