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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
