Development of a 37-element fuel bundle for the production of molybdenum-99 in CANDU power reactors.
In this study, the potential use of CANDU power reactors for the production of Mo-99 is assessed. Five different modifications of a 37-element fuel bundle that could be used for the production of Mo-99 in existing CANDU ...
Leakage-corrected discontinuity factors for a second-generation Th-Pu pressure-tube SCWR.
The neutron flux throughout a reactor core should be calculated, ideally, by solving the neutron transport equation for a highly detailed geometric model of the core. Since this is computationally impractical, approximate ...
Developing 1-D heat transfer correlations for supercritical water and carbon dioxide in vertical tubes
Taking into account the expected increase in global energy demands and increasing climate change issues, there is a pressing need to develop new environmentally sustainable energy systems. Nuclear energy will play a major ...
Development of a semi-autonomous directional and spectroscopic radiation detection mobile platform
This thesis presents a method for a small, inexpensive mobile robot equipped with a single high resolution scintillation detector to quickly survey an area and convey information about local sources of gamma radiation to ...
Moderator displacers for reducing coolant void reactivity in CANDU reactors: a neutronics scoping study.
When the coolant is voided in a CANDU lattice, the net reactivity change is positive, due primarily to the fact that the coolant and moderator are separated and the coolant volume is much smaller than the moderator volume. ...
