Photo Credit to Sarah Stevenson Eleven years have passed since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants has been progressing steadily. Professor Toru Obara's lecture will feature the current status of decommissioning. In addition, an introduction to the Nuclear Innovator Cultivation Program (NICP), an

Advanced Surveillance: Assessing Radiation–Induced Effects in RPV Materials

4101 Etcheverry Hall

Dr. Inge Uytdenhouwen Abstract: To monitor the degradation of nuclear reactor pressure vessel materialsinduced by neutron irradiation; dedicated surveillance programs are in place. Goal of these programs is to evaluate the effect of neutron irradiation on the mechanical properties ahead of time compared to the real degradation of the reactor pressure vessel. Here the so

Start-up core design study in RFBB and Neutron Nuclear Data Measurement Using the J-PARC Spallation Neutron Source and the Tokyo Tech Pelletron Accelerator

4101 Etcheverry Hall

Prof. Tatsuya Katabuchi and Prof. Toru Obara Toru Obara Abstract: Rotational Fuel-shuffling Breed-and-Burn reactor (RFBB) has been studied as a reactor that can achieve effective utilization of uranium resources and reduction of nuclear waste. In this talk, the concept of the RFBB and the current study of the start-up core design is introduced. Biography: Toru
