Dynamic accident sequence analysis using dynamic flowgraph method and Markov/cell-to-cell mapping technique
In the recent years, numerous concerns have been raised regarding the capabilities and adequacy of classical probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) techniques (fault/event tree) to account for dynamic system interactions ...
A Computational Fluid Dynamics based model that predicts wall shear stress in CANDU outlet feeder pipes
Wall thinning of carbon steel in CANDU reactor outlet feeder pipes due to Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) is identified as one of the challenges for CANDU reactors since it would force them to shut down due to safety ...
Implementation of power electronics in nuclear power plants: DC electrical system conceptual design and its financial analysis
A Power Electronic (PE) device is a semiconductor-based device which enable many advanced conversion of electricity which have been used widely in many industries. Due to the recent development in both circuit design and ...

Methods for optimization of neutron detector performance in nuclear power plants
Safety of nuclear power plants (NPPs) requires shutdown systems to mitigate design-basis accidents. Shutdown is based on measurements from in-core flux detectors. Thus, this thesis proposes a methodology for managing ...
Investigation of the bubble detector response to high LET space radiation
The radiation environment aboard spacecraft is a complex mixture of neutrons, photons, protons, heavy ions and other particles. A special type of superheated droplet detectors referred to as space bubble detectors (SBD) ...
Developing a thermodynamic model for the U-Pd-Rh-Ru quaternary system for use in the modelling of nuclear fuel
Ruthenium, rhodium, and palladium are fission products in nuclear fuels. These elements and their compounds change the properties of fuel pellets. Phase diagrams involving uranium have been constructed experimentally to ...
