A study on the impact of global replacement of fossil fuel based electricity generation, transportation and domestic heating with nuclear generated electricity using a modified VENSIM DICE model
While much debated across current media, electricity generation using nuclear energy is proposed as one of the means of addressing the global negative impacts of climate change – notably ongoing accumulation of CO2 in the ...
Optimization of a GEM-based detector to measure tritium and discriminate against other radiation types
Tritium poses a radioprotection issue, in the Canadian Nuclear industry due to the operation of its fleet of Canadian Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) heavy water reactors. Although it is a less penetrative radionuclide, tritium ...
Developing a framework for thermodynamic measurements of fluoride salt nuclear fuel
With a single liquid acting simultaneously as a primary coolant and a nuclear fuel, molten salt reactor development has been challenged with understanding the behavior of its complex fluoride solution under various conditions. ...
Environmental impact of zebra mussel controls in nuclear power plants
Industries that rely on the Great Lakes for cooling have battled the zebra mussel infestation for years. With increasing emphasis on environmental sustainability, decision-makers need to consider more than just monetary ...
Computational fluid dynamic investigations of flow through an aged CANDU pressure tube
Single-phase, isothermal computational fluid dynamics simulations of twelve simplified CANDUTM 37M fuel bundles sitting in both as-received and aged pressure tubes were performed with Hydra in this work. The predicted ...
A generic methodology for the three dimensional display of radiation fields
The radiation field visualization options available for engineers, scientists and health physicists have traditionally been based in the 2d realm, with techniques such as the generation of isodose curves. From the perspective ...
