Reactor Design & Thermal Hydraulics
The Reactor Design and Thermal Hydraulics (RDTH) group was established in late 2019 and is led by Dr. Marcus Dahlfors. Like the rest of NFI, it operates with the support of the Sêr Cymru programme.
RDTH emphasises Reactor Physics in practical plant operation and core monitoring. Thermal-Hydraulics (T/H) is therefore devoted particular focus within the group’s activities.
Much of our efforts are currently directed towards the ambitious THOR project, which will produce a UK unique T/H research facility.
