Adaptive multigroup radiation diffusion
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
This thesis describes the development and implementation of an algorithm for dramatically increasing the accuracy and reliability of multigroup radiation diffusion simulations at low group counts. This is achieved by ...
Synthesis and evaluation of actinide imprinted resins
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
Organic resins have previously shown good results with application to actinide separations. Large portions of recent research have been dedicated to the synthesis and evaluation of resins with phenolic-type functional ...
Bayesian Belief Network (BBN)-based advisory system development for steam generator replacement project management
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
The growing need for improved project management technique points to the usefulness of a knowledge-base advisory system to help project managers understand current and future project status and optimize decisions based ...
A supercritical carbon dioxide cycle for next generation nuclear reactors
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
A systematic, detailed major component and system design evaluation and multiple parameter optimization under practical constraints has been performed of the family of supercritical CO2 Brayton power cycles for application ...
Simulation of ionospheric plasma heating experiments in the versatile toroidal facility
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
Remote sensing techniques employed to diagnose ionospheric modification experiments are intrinsically ambiguous, uncorrelated with "ground truth." To overcome this limitation, laboratory experiments are performed in the ...
Industrial applications of photonuclear resonance excitation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
Photonuclear resonance excitation refers to a variety of photonuclear interaction processes that lead to the excitation of a nucleus from some initial state to a higher energy nuclear state. Typical excited nuclear state ...
