O mém projektu

This project deals with improvements of safety and economic of nuclear fuel, especially for pressurized light water reactors. There are two main points of the research, firstly the additional special material in fuel matric to enhance thermal conductivity (ECO fuel) and secondly, the improvement of fuel cladding. The research includes computational, theoretical, modeling part and then experimental part to evaluate results from modeling. In the project, there are explanations about the latest findings provided as well as the use of software for modeling and the facility, which will be used.
