Training course: From nuclear data to a reliable estimate of spent fuel decay heat
On October 25, 2017 the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology will organise, in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Geel, a training course entitled “From nuclear data to a reliable estimate of spent fuel decay heat”, which will be held at the SCK•CEN Lakehouse in Mol, Belgium.
Objective & topics
This training course is organized by the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology in collaboration with the EC-JRC Geel in order to bring together master students, PhD students or professionals involved in the characterization of spent nuclear fuel, decay heat calculations and/or measurements.
The following topics will be treated:
- Experimental determination of fission fragment yields and characteristics
- Prompt neutron and gamma-ray emission in nuclear fission
- Physics of fission yield models
- Q-value and decay heat
- Activation/depletion of reactor fuel
- Decay heat experiments
- Experimental characterisation of spent nuclear fuel
Master students, PhD students or professionals involved in the characterization of spent nuclear fuel, decay heat calculations and measurements.
