48th Annual Technical Meeting of Society of Engineering Sciences

Northwestern University, October 12-14, 2011 | http://ses2011.org/


 

Fluid, Thermal and Energy Track

Symposium 2.6, “Energy: Nuclear Energy Technology”

Chair: Roger Blomquist
Session date: Thursday, Oct 13, 2011

Sixteen papers by world-leading experts in nuclear technology from Argonne National Laboratory will be presented on October 13 at the Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Sciences to be held at Northwestern University's Norris Center, Evanston, Ill. The papers, included in the session “Energy: Nuclear Energy Technology,” will explain nuclear technology and discuss current research, including work in related fields such as materials science and applied mathematics. The session agenda below includes links to abstracts of the papers; missing abstracts will be added as soon as they are available.

The Society of Engineering Sciences holds its technical meeting annually at a U.S. university to promote the free exchange of information on the various disciplines of engineering and the fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics, bioengineering related fields.
