(2018-07-16)Head and neck cancer (HNC) is collectively a group of cancers that usually begin in mucosal surfaces inside the head and neck. Due to the complex anatomy and vital physiological role of the tumor-involved regions, the goal ...
(2018-07-11)Experiments have been conducted in a vertical square channel to investigate wall nucleation characteristics and Critical Heat Flux (CHF) in subcooled boiling flows under subatmospheric pressure. Forced convection boiling ...
Investigation effect of external stress on hydrogen solvus in a zircaloy-4 fuel cladding alloy: application of in situ diffraction technique and mesoscale phase-field simulation (2018-06-21)Zircaloy-4 is widely used as a nuclear fuel cladding material in light water reactors (LWRs). However, the formation of the zirconium hydride phase in the cladding significantly degrades its mechanical properties by reducing ...
Adjoint sensitivity analysis of the two-phase two-fluid model based on an approximate Riemann solver (2018-06-04)A new shock-capturing upwind numerical solver (i.e. forward solver) and an adjoint sensitivity analysis framework for the two-phase two-fluid model are developed and verified. Both the numerical solver and the adjoint ...
Integrated probabilistic risk assessment (I-PRA) methodology and computational platform for fire PRA of nuclear power plants (2018-04-11)Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) is a systematic methodology to estimate risk in complex technological systems. PRA has been utilized by both the nuclear industry and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to ...
