OPENER Summer School
3-7 September 2018, POLIMI, Milan, Italy
OpenFOAM for Multiphysics Modeling of Nuclear Reactors
The first OPENER summer school will take place at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, on 3-7 September 2018. Participants will be guided through a full multi-physics modeling of a nuclear reactor. They will learn how to tailor the available OpenFOAM CFD solvers to the needs of nuclear reactor analysis, how to create new solvers for neutronics, and how to couple OpenFOAM to a Monte Carlo code like Serpent.
9th International Training Session: Metallurgy and Properties of Zr Alloys for Nuclear Applications
4-8 June 2018, National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN), CEA Saclay, France
An intensive postgraduate course training qualified engineers, scientists and PhD students by providing a general view of Zr alloys from processing to in service properties including safety concerns.
2018 Modeling, Experimentation and Validation (MeV) Summer School
16-26 July 2018, Argonne National Lab, USA
The summer school focuses on Advanced Reactor Systems and Novel Advances in Multi-Physics Modeling and Simulation, and it will provide early career engineers and scientists with advanced studies in integrated modeling, experimentation, and validation (MeV) to develop an understanding of the current and future challenges facing nuclear energy advancement.
International Course: Generation IV Nuclear Reactor Systems for the Future
18-22 June 2018, INSTN/CEA-Saclay, France
In this course participants will receive an up-to-date basic knowledge of the six concepts selected for Generation IV Nuclear Systems (SFR, LFR, GFR, VHTR, SCWR, MSR). Our target audience are professionals who are already involved in Gen IV system activities or planning to work in this area. Researchers and students interested in fourth generation nuclear reactors are also invited to participate in this International Course.
