Low energy photon mimic of the tritium beta decay energy spectrum
Tritium is a radioactive hydrogen isotope that is typically produced via neutron interaction with heavy water (D2O), producing tritiated water (DTO). As a result of this, tritium accounts for roughly a third of all ...
Development of thermodynamic cycles for sodium-cooled-fast reactors.
Currently, one engineering challenge is designing Generation IV (GEN-IV) Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) with significantly higher thermal efficiencies compared to current NPPs, and to match, or at least to be close to, the ...
Petri net modeling of fault analysis for probabilistic risk assessment
Fault trees and event trees have been widely accepted as the modeling strategy to perform Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA). However, there are several limitations associated with fault tree/event tree modeling. These ...
Development of energy compensated Geiger Muller detector based on the T2416A Canberra Co. GM detector
Geiger Muller counters have been a fundamental device in radiation detection for decades due to their simplicity and low cost. Canberra Company has been designing and manufacturing Geiger Muller detectors in various designs ...
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 ...
