  • Memmott, Matthew J.; Hejzlar, Pavel; Buongiorno, Jacopo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Advanced Nuclear Power Program, 2009-08)
    The sodium fast reactor (SFR) is currently being reconsidered as an instrument for actinide management throughout the world, thanks in part to international programs such as the Generation-IV and especially the Global ...
  • 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 ...
