The May bulletin covers the following items:
The SERENA programme, sponsored by the CSNI Working Group on Analysis and Management of Accidents (GAMA), held its first meeting at the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IRSN), Fontenay-aux-Roses, France on 15-17 April 2002. The SERENA programme aims to promote international technical consensus on the understanding of fuel-coolant interaction (FCI) processes and energetics, and to standardise the methods for reliably estimating the core loadings under realistic reactor conditions. More information is available here.
The sixth workshop on the shielding of accelerators, targets and irradiation facilities (SATIF-6) was hosted by the Stanford Linear
Accelerator Center at Menlo Park, California, USA on 10-12 April
2002. Discussions centered on identifying the areas that require
further theoretical model development, experimental work and benchmarking
for model validation. The results of these discussions, along with
the technical presentations made during six topical sessions, will
be published by the end of 2002. More information is available at
Three subgroups of the Working Party on Scientific Issues in Partitioning and Transmutation (WPPT) met at NEA headquarters on 22-26 April 2002. The subgroups on fuels and materials, physics and safety of transmutation systems, and pyrochemistry met in both individual and joint sessions. All three sub-groups are preparing state-of-the-art reports on their particular areas of speciality. The physics and safety of transmutation systems subgroup is also carrying out two benchmarks. More information is available at www.oecd-nea.org/science/wppt/.
The NEA has received a limited number of copies of the Japanese
Nuclear Data Committee's Progress Report for January 2001 to December
2001 inclusive (Report No. INDC(JPN)-189/U). This document includes
all requested reports submitted to the committee during this period.
