  • Allen, G. C. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, [1971], 1971)
    The design version of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology research reactor (MITR-II) was analyzed subject to earthquake forces. The problem was divided into three major areas. First, the reactor core tank and support ...
  • Allen, George Charman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1971)
  • Kazimi, Mujid S.; Dube, Donald A.; Green, R. W. Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Lidsky, L. M. (Lawrence Mark); Rasmussen, Norman C.; Sawdye, Robert William; Sefcik, Joseph A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1977], 1977)
    This report summarizes the progress made between October 1976 and September 1977 in studies of some environmental and safety considerations in fusion reactor plants. A methodology to assess the admissible occurrence rate ...
  • Siu, N. O. (Nathan O.); Pagnoni, Tommaso (Cambridge, Mass. : Program on Nuclear Power Plant Innovation, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988, 1988)
  • Leung, MinWah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the transportation sector, the current dependence on petroleum to satisfy large transportation fuel demand in the US is unsustainable. Oil resources are finite, and causing heavy US reliance on oil imports. Therefore, ...
  • Roomy, Thomas Hayward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The objective of this thesis was to assess the effectiveness of using a Wigner-Seitz (WS) cell with an adjusted moderator thickness to produce more accurate resonance self-shielded cross sections for light water reactor ...
  • Conboy, Thomas M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In order to significantly increase the power density of Light Water Reactors (LWRs), the helical-cruciform (HC) fuel rod assembly has been proposed as an alternative to traditional fuel geometry. The HC assembly is a ...
  • Liu, Wenfeng, Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The economic advantages of longer fuel cycle, improved fuel utilization and reduced spent fuel storage have been driving the nuclear industry to pursue higher discharge burnup of Light Water Reactor (LWR) fuel. A design ...
  • Carpenter, David Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    To increase the power density and maximum allowable fuel burnup in light water reactors, new fuel rod designs are investigated. Such fuel is desirable for improving the economic performance light water reactors loaded with ...
  • Lancaster, Dale Burkham; Driscoll, M. J. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, 1980, 1980)
  • Chambers, Dwight McCoy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the confectionery industry, there is considerable interest in understanding the mechanisms of liquid lipid migration inside chocolates as it relates to combating fat-bloom defects in confectionery products. [1] This ...
  • Sivels, Ciara (Ciara Brooke) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In February of 2013, North Korea conducted its third nuclear weapons test. Speculations are that this test was conducted to further develop a warhead small enough to fit on an intercontinental ballistic missile. This test ...
  • Carpenter, David Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    An investigation into the properties and performance of a novel silicon carbide-based fuel rod cladding under PWR conditions was conducted. The novel design is a triplex, with the inner and outermost layers consisting of ...
  • Styczynski, John R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    PURPOSE: Prompt gamma rays emitted from proton-nucleus interactions in tissue present a promising non-invasive, in situ means of monitoring proton beam based radiotherapy. This study investigates the fluence and energy ...
  • Wood, Paul Joseph; Driscoll Michael J. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, 1973, 1973)
  • Zaterman, Daniel R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The future viability of nuclear power will depend on the long-term availability of uranium. A two-form uranium supply model was used to estimate the date at which peak production will occur. The model assumes a constant ...
  • Cai, Wei, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Dislocation is a line defect in crystalline materials, and a microscopic carrier of plastic deformation. Because dislocation has both a localized core and a long-range stress field, linking atomistic and meso scales is ...
  • Fan, Yue, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis is a computational and theoretical investigation of the response of materials' mechanical properties to a wide range of environmental conditions, with a particular focus on the coupled effects of strain rate ...
  • Liao, Dongyi, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis is a study of atomistic measures of strength and deformation of ceramic materials, utilizing molecular dynamics (MD) simulation that incorporates newly developed theoretical models and computational algorithms ...
  • Chang, Jinpeng, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Multiscale materials modeling has emerged in recent years as a significant concept and the only viable approach to understand the mechanical response of materials by linking modeling research at different length scales and ...
