2015 Advanced Sensors and Instrumentation Webinar

The Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) Advanced Sensors and Instrumentation (ASI) program, in coordination with the Office of Nuclear Reactor Technologies and the Office of Fuel Cycle Technologies, conducted an Instrumentations and Controls (I&C) webinar on October 28-29, 2015. This webinar provided an opportunity to review the research and development being conducted in the areas of sensors, controls, communications, digital instrumentation, human-machine technologies, and related areas across the Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) and to promote greater coordination among the various NE R&D programs.
The meeting presentations are available here.

2015 ANNUAL DOE-NE MATERIALS RESEARCH MEETING

The Reactor Materials element of the Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) program conducted its FY 2015 coordination meeting as a series of two web-conferences to act as a forum for the nuclear materials research community. The purpose of this meeting was to report on current and planned nuclear materials research, identify new areas of collaboration and promote greater coordination among the various Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) programs. Although each program has unique materials issues, there are opportunities to enhance coordination and collaboration. Other departmental programs such as the Offices of Science (Basic Energy Sciences and Fusion Energy), Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Fossil Energy, and other agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) also sponsor research in nuclear materials. Engagement with these organizations fosters new research partnerships, enhanced collaboration, and shared investment in research facilities. The presentations from this two part webinar series are available here.

Application of Generic Disposal System Models

Two of the high priorities for UFDC disposal R&D are design concept development and disposal system modeling; these are directly addressed in the Generic Disposal Systems Analysis (GDSA) work.  This report describes specific GDSA activities during fiscal year 2015 toward the development of the enhanced disposal system modeling and analysis capability for geologic disposal of nuclear waste.  The GDSA framework employs the PFLOTRAN thermal-hydrologic-chemical multi-physics code and the Dakota uncertainty sampling and propagation code.

FY2015 Status Report: CIRFT Testing of High-Burnup Used Nuclear Fuel Rods from Pressurized Water Reactor and BWR Environments

High-burnup spent nuclear fuel cladding has a significant amount of microcracks and hydrides which will reduce the stress intensity required for crack growth.  Characteristics of cladding, fuel pellets, and interface between cladding and fuel pellets are likely to change after high burnup; these material modifications may impact the structural integrity and vibration response of SNF rods in transport.  The research object is to develop a system for testing the response of high-burnup fuel rods under simulated loading conditions.  The report provides recent test results derived from the Cyc
