Bringing nuclear safety to the next level
From September - December 2021, SAMOSAFER is organising an MSR School that will teach you all about the main areas of active research in MSR technology.
The SAMOSAFER project is organising an ONLINE School on Molten Salt Reactor during the fall of 2021, teaching you all about the main areas of active research in MSR technology, coherently with the scope of the SAMOSAFER project.
The school is offered to Master and PhD students, as well as young professionals in the field of nuclear engineering and technology.
The school consists of 7 modules of 3h each, which will be given in a distributed mode between September and December 2021. Each module is composed by:
*Some of the interactive sessions, due to the organization of hands-on exercise, might be limited in the number of students admitted.
|Module 1 MSR Neutronics||September 9, 2021||2-5 pm CEST|
|Module 2 MSR Thermal hydraulics||September 16, 2021||2-5 pm CEST|
|Module 3 MSR Multiphysics||October 13, 2021||2-5 pm CEST|
|Module 4 MSR Thermo-chemistry||October 26, 2021||3–6 pm CEST|
|Module 5 MSR Design||November 3, 2021||2-5 pm CET|
|Module 6 MSR Operation & control||November 17, 2021||2-5 pm CET|
|Module 7 MSR Safety||December 7, 2021||2-5 pm CET|
Preliminary list of lecturers (in alphabetical order): Ondrej Beneš, Frédéric Bertrand, Thomas Boisseau, Sylvie Delpech, Sandra Dulla, Evgeny Ivanov, Jan Leen Kloosterman, Jiri Krepel, Danny Lathouwers, Stefano Lorenzi, Elsa Merle, Zoltan Perko, Markus Piro, Pablo Rubiolo
All lectures will be recorded, and a selected subset of contributions will be broadcasted as SAMOSAFER webinars.
|Module 2 MSR Thermal hydraulics||Overview of SAMOSAFER experimental facilities||September 16, 2021|
|Module 4 MSR Thermo-chemistry||How to measure thermo-physical properties in molten salt||October 26, 2021|
|Module 5 MSR Design||Panel on MSR designs around the world||November 3, 2021|
|Module 6 MSR Operation & control||Focus on differences among PWR, SFR and MSFR||November 17, 2021|
Students enrolled in the school will be provided by the end of the school with a capstone project, connected to the contents of the school, to be independently developed and presented at the Young MSR Conference foreseen in 2022 (hopefully in presence).
Certificate of attendance
Students who follow at least 5 modules of the school will receive a certificate of attendance (approx. 3 ECTS). Students who successfully participate in the capstone project will receive an additional 2 ECTS.
Registration is closed.
