    • The environmental effect on corrosion fatigue behavior of austenitic stainless steels 

      Yu, Lun, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      Corrosion fatigue is a multivariate challenge that threatens the lifetime of service of nuclear power plant materials, especially austenitic stainless steels. Both enhancement and retardation of crack growth have been ...
    • Nuclear asset shutdown under uncertainty 

      Haratyk, Geoffrey (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      The restructuring of the power sector that began in the 1990s created acute competition for nuclear power plants. While merchant reactors benefited from this change in the early years, recently they started to retire for ...
    • The effect of irradiation temperature on REBCO Jc degradation and implications for fusion magnets 

      Sorbom, Brandon Nils (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
      Recent advances in high temperature superconductors (HTS) have opened up a new parameter space for the design of tokamak fusion pilot plants. While previously the maximum on-axis field in a superconducting tokamak was ...
