IAEA Coordinated Research Project on In-vessel Melt Retention Phenomena

Dr Walter Villanueva attended the IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP) meeting on In-vessel Melt Retention Phenomena at the end of May this year. He represented the UK as a Chief Scientific Investigator (CSI) from Bangor University. He leads a Mechanical Benchmark on Finite Element Analysis of Reactor Pressure Vessel under in-vessel melt retention strategy. He also participates in another benchmark on CFD simulations of natural convection in a metal layer. The project’s outcome will be an IAEA TECDOC plus journal and conference papers. Stay tuned!
