Nuclear Systems Technologies


 
  • Nuclear Criticality Safety

    Nuclear criticality safetyWe perform criticality safety and shielding evaluations for nuclear facilities with complex configurations and operations involving wide ranges of geometries, materials, and neutron spectra. These capabilities are based on a staff with decades of cumulative experience (experimental and analytical) and the latest software and nuclear data libraries. [More...]
    NE Departments involved:
    Nuclear Systems Analysis
  • Research Reactor Analysis

    RERTRWe provide the analytical and design evaluations needed by the RERTR program. Our computational database, which is continuously updated and improved, consists of a number of computer codes to analyze the physics, thermal-hydraulics, and safety performance of research reactors. Using these analytical tools, the RERTR program performs studies of specific foreign and domestic reactors to assess their potential for conversion to LEU fuel and to provide analytical support for such conversions.

  • Systems/Process Monitoring, Diagnostics and Control

    We develop, demonstrate and apply advanced software tools for optimizing the operation of nuclear power plants and other engineering systems. This software generates and substantiates information online about the condition of plant systems. This information can then be used to maximize plant availability and power output, optimize plant maintenance functions, and help operators cope with potential upsets. [More...]
