Lecture series: Thermohydraulics and Chemistry of Liquid Metal Cooled Reactors

Share the news!

myrrhaWe are pleased to announce a new Lectures Series on Thermohydraulics and Chemistry of Liquid Metal Cooled Reactors that will be organised in the framework of the MYRTE and SESAME Horizon 2020 projects of the European Union.

Most of the lecturers will be scientists who are actively involved in one of these two research projects.   The lecture’s co-directors are Ferry Roelofs from NRG (the Netherlands) and Philippe Planquart from the von Karman Institute.

  • Date: Monday 10 April 2017 to Friday 14 April 2017
  • Location: von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Sint-Genesius-Rode (near Brussels), Belgium

The objective of the Lecture Series is to provide a state-of-the-art review of the current knowledge and future challenges in Fluid Mechanics and Chemistry of Liquid Metal Cooled Reactors, as well as general lessons on these topics and more specialised lectures related to current research activities.

The course will start with a description of the thermo-hydraulic challenges for future Liquid Metal Cooled reactors and will be followed by a review on the chemistry challenges.  The next part of the course will be devoted to thermo-hydraulics challenges from a modeling point of view (system codes and CFD code) and from an experimental point of view.

The Lecture Series is intended to provide enough introductory material to welcome novices in the field but also advanced information for expert researchers.
