Disruptive technologies for nuclear safety applications
Nuclear safety can be understood as accident prevention in nuclear installations, via its systems and its human resources, and the mitigation of risks and consequences if an accident should occur.
Boiling water reactors (BWRs) use light water as a coolant and a moderator. This water is converted to steam in the core and then passes through a turbine.
Digital instrumentation and control equipment (DI&C) transmits information in ones and zeros, and provides a number of advantages in nuclear safety.
Codes and standards are technical positions that govern specific activities such as welding, fabrication, testing and non-destructive examination, and are crucial to nuclear safety operations.
The International Reporting System for Operating Experience (IRS) is an essential system for the exchange of information on safety related events at nuclear power plants worldwide. The fundamental ob...
