Developing a framework for thermodynamic measurements of fluoride salt nuclear fuel
With a single liquid acting simultaneously as a primary coolant and a nuclear fuel, molten salt reactor development has been challenged with understanding the behavior of its complex fluoride solution under various conditions. ...
Optimization of a GEM-based detector to measure tritium and discriminate against other radiation types
Tritium poses a radioprotection issue, in the Canadian Nuclear industry due to the operation of its fleet of Canadian Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) heavy water reactors. Although it is a less penetrative radionuclide, tritium ...
A generic methodology for the three dimensional display of radiation fields
The radiation field visualization options available for engineers, scientists and health physicists have traditionally been based in the 2d realm, with techniques such as the generation of isodose curves. From the perspective ...
Characterization of eutectic In-Bi-Sn alloy (Field’s metal) for use in single and two-phase liquid metal flow in natural circulation systems
An In-Bi-Sn eutectic alloy was characterized for the purpose of liquid metal natural circulation experiments. The alloy was chosen to reduce the power requirement and enhance the safety of these types of experiments. The ...
The conceptualization and parameterization of a gaseous detector rasterizing pinhole gamma camera
This thesis details the conceptualization and parameterization of a gaseous detector rasterizing pinhole gamma camera. In this thesis, there is a literature review that describes the historical development of gamma imaging, ...
