Determining the effectiveness of nuclear security through computer simulation
There is a growing concern from both national regulators and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about the threat posed by attacks against iconic targets such as nuclear power plants. This has led to an increased ...
Characterization of neutron fields around an intense neutron generator
Neutron fields in the vicinity of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology neutron facility have been investigated in a series of simulations and experiments. The neutron fluence at several locations around the ...
Simulation of dynamic response of Self-Powered-Inconel-Neutron-Detector lead cables using a semi-empirical model
The work presented here was devoted to the modelling and simulation of the dynamic response of lead cables of Inconel self-powered neutron detectors in a CANDUpower reactor. The main goal was to develop a semi-empirical ...
