Petten (NL) - 13/10/08 - 31/10/08
3D S.UN.COP - Seminar and Training on Scaling, UNcertainty and 3D COuPled code calculations in Nuclear Technology
The University of Pisa (UNIPI), the JRC Institute for Energy (IE), the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) of Zagreb and the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB) are jointly organizing a seminar and training to transfer competence, knowledge and experience in the area of scaling, uncertainty and 3D coupled code calculations.
The seminar will take place in Petten, close to Amsterdam (The Netherlands) from October 13th to October 31st, 2008 at the Institute for Energy. It will be held in the modern classrooms which are equipped with data projectors and networked PCs suitable for running advanced best estimate thermal-hydraulic codes (e.g. RELAP5).
The seminar is open to universities, vendors, national laboratories and regulatory bodies. At least two years’ experience in the use of a thermal-hydraulic system code is needed to participate in the course. A minimum of twenty participants is required to organize the seminar. A maximum of 40 persons will be accepted.
The seminar is subdivided into three parts and participants may choose to attend a one-, two- or three-week course. The first week is dedicated to lectures describing the concepts of the proposed methodologies; the second week is devoted to training and to the applied part while the third week will be dedicated to user qualification, including a learning examination on the topics of the seminar. The participants will be divided into groups of threes or fours and each group will be accompanied by an expert during the entire training activity. The application of the proposed methodology will be illustrated through tests in the BETHSY, LOFT and/or in the PMK facility. A visit to the High Flux Reactor (HFR) will be organized during the third week of the course.
Further information about participation and registration as well as useful practical information can be obtained from Alessandro Petruzzi.
