FJOH School Description (from the leaflet)
The 24th session of the Frédéric Joliot/Otto Hahn (FJOH) Summer School on “Nuclear Reactors Physics, Fuels, and Systems” will be held in Aix-en-Provence, France, from August 22 to 31, 2018. This session is entitled “Maximizing the Benefits of Experiments for the Simulation, Design and Analysis of Reactors”. It is an advanced post-graduate-level course aimed at junior as well as experienced scientists and engineers engaged in the broad field of nuclear sciences, engineering and technologies.
The FJOH-2018 objective is to help the school participants broaden their knowledge of experimental methods and techniques used in conjunction with advanced models for describing nuclear reactors on multiple scales. The overall course will describe state-of-the-art methodologies and implementation practices, some challenges and limitations, expected improvements, and current R&D trends.
The FJOH-2018 programme covers the following four topics: (1) From traditional to advanced neutron physics validation experiments; (2) New experiments for scale-bridging thermohydraulics; (3) Experiments for fuel and material multiscale modelling; (4) Experiments for improved safety demonstration and operational support. In the first three topics, traditional and advanced measurement techniques will be described. In the fourth topic, a broader perspective will be taken, showing how experimental information is integrated into global simulations and safety demonstrations. Examples will be provided throughout the course
FJOH-2018 includes plenary lectures, group discussions, seminars, and technical visits. The speakers invited are internationally recognized experts from leading universities, research and development laboratories and industry.
The FJOH-2018 participants will have the opportunity to share their views on specific cross-cutting subjects and open-ended questions, as part of group reflection and critical thinking activities. Time for these group activities is reserved in the School schedule.
