  • Langewisch, D. R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Systems Enhanced Performance Program, 2010-01)
  • d'Oro, Edoardo Cavalieri; Golay, Michael J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Systems Enhanced Performance Program, 2011-09)
    In order to strengthen the current non-proliferation regime it is necessary to guarantee high standards of security for the sites that use, store, produce, or reprocess special nuclear materials (SNM). The current surge ...
  • Du, Yangbo; Parsons, John E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 2009-05)
    We update the cost of nuclear power as calculated in the MIT (2003) Future of Nuclear Power study. Our main focus is on the changing cost of construction of new plants. The MIT (2003) study provided useful data on the ...
  • Middleton, Bobby D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Systems Enhanced Performance Program, 2005-09)
    Research was done to show how the output distribution of a system with random variables changes as the input distributions and other parameters are changed. Using Information Theory techniques, these different input and ...
  • Dulik, J. D.; Golay, M. W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Advanced Nuclear Power Program, 1997-12)
    Emergency diesel generators are one of the most important contributors to the core damage failure rate of nuclear power plants. Current required testing and maintenance procedures are excessively strict and expensive without ...
  • Fei, Tingzhou; Golay, Michael W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Advanced Nuclear Power Program, 2010-03)
    Passive safety systems are more vulnerable to their environment and initial condition due to the typical low driving forces, e.g., that of the natural circulation. We investigate the merits of different methods for ...
  • Jourdan, G.; Golay, M. W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Advanced Nuclear Power Program, 2005-12)
    The strategy adopted for national energy supply is one of the most important policy choice for the US. Although it has been dismissed in the past decades, nuclear power today has key assets when facing concerns on energy ...
  • Vitillo, Francesco; Todreas, Neil E.; Driscoll, Michael J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Advanced Nuclear Power Program, 2011-06)
    The goal of this work is to investigate the feasibility of a vented inverted fuel assembly for a sodium-cooled fast reactor. The inverted geometry has been previously investigated for application in Gas-cooled Fast ...
  • Diller, Peter; Todreas, Neil E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 2006-01)
    This work contributes to the Hydride Fuels Project, a collaborative effort between UC Berkeley and MIT aimed at investigating the potential benefits of hydride fuel use in light water reactors (LWRs). Core design is ...
