Study of temperature dependence of hydrogen retention in lithium coatings on stainless steel with the Materials Analysis Particle Probe (MAPP) (2015-12-09)Plasma materials interactions (PMI) in tokamak machines play a crucial role in the overall plasma performance. For this reason PMI research has gained great interest during the last couple of decades. Proper conditioning ...
(2015-12-07)In the edge and divertor regions of the magnetically confined plasma, tokamaks experience off-normal events in which high intensities of heat flux incident on wall component surfaces result in intolerable levels of damage. ...
(2015-12-03)Forward quantification of uncertainties in code responses require knowledge of input model parameter uncertainties. Nuclear thermal-hydraulics codes such as RELAP5 and TRACE do not provide any information on physical model ...
(2015-12-10)Best-estimate codes have been developed in the nuclear industry to design and license nuclear power plants to a greater degree of accuracy and safety assurance. Such codes necessitate efforts to qualify their validity, ...
(2015-11-10)The effect of helium in iron is an important issue in nuclear systems, as iron and iron alloys (steels) are the primary materials used for structural elements. Helium is known to cause embrittlement and decrease fatigue ...
