Spotlight on Selected Thermal-Hydraulic Research Activities to Support Current and Future U.S. Nuclear Energy

Dr. Amir Ali

Dr. Amir Ali, University of New Mexico
Following the severe accidents that occurred at the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 2011, research and development for improving the safety of Light Water Reactors (LWRs) have been underway in the United States. The U.S. Congress has directed the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop new Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF) materials. This talk will summarize some of the thermal-hydraulic research activities at UNM to support the ATF program for LWRs and developing new heat exchanger concepts to support Flouride Salt-Cooled High Temperature Reactors.
