Title: Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Nuclear Criticality Safety
Description: The aim of this EPSRC/MOD Contractor sponsored industrial CASE PhD studentship based at Imperial College London is to develop novel mathematical and computational models to perform nuclear criticality safety assessment for wetted/damped fissile powders (UO2 and PuO2), suspensions, slurries, cakes and sludges.
Supervisor(s): Dr Matt Eaton
Funding: EPSRC and MoD Contractor
Title: Improved Estimation of Anisotropic Neutron Diffusion Coefficients
Description: The aim of this EPSRC/EDF Energy sponsored PhD industrial CASE studentship based at Imperial College London is to develop novel mathematical techniques and numerical algorithms for neutron streaming within Advanced Gas Cooled Reactors (AGRs) with special application to steam ingress safety analysis.
