On November 15th, Mathieu Dupont successfully defended his dissertation titled, “Development and Characterization of Coupled Physics Critical Experiments at the Walthousen Reactor Critical Facility for Use as Multi-Physics Experimental Benchmarks.”
Kurt goes to Portland Oregon to attend the 2019 M&C Conference where he presented his paper “Reduced-Order Modeling of Neutron Transport Separated in Space and Angle via Proper Generalized Decomposition.” NuCoMP alumni Dr. Andrew Pavlou and Dr. Jaron Senecal also attended the conference.
For the second year in a row, students from NuCoMP attend the CASL (The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors) Institute. CASL is a DOE program for the advanced modeling of light water reactors using a multi-physics framework (VERA).
Kurt goes to Minneapolis, MN for the ANS Annual Meeting to present on “A Reduced-Order Neutron Diffusion Model Separated in Space and Energy via Proper Generalized Decomposition.”
Peter was recently awarded the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) Fellowship. This fellowship provided through the Department of Energy (DOE) and is designed to support innovative nuclear energy research.
Chris, who graduated with his Ph.D. in 2017, made his second appearance on The Space Show. He covered a wide range of topics including space radiation, rodent GCR (galactic cosmic radiation) experiments, and space nuclear power & propulsion.
Kurt attended the 2018 American Nuclear Society Winter Meeting and Technology Expo in Orlando, FL. While there, he presented his work “Editor Services for MCNP6 in the NEAMS Workbench” and “A Reduced-Order Neutron Transport Model Separated in Space and Angle”.
Peter attended the American Nuclear Society Radiation Protection and Shielding Division 2018 conference in Santa Fe, NM which included special sessions on modeling charged particle transport as well as the space environment.
Kurt wins second place with his paper “Preliminary Integration of MCNP6 and PROTEUS into the NEAMS Workbench” which he presented at the American Nuclear Society Annual Meeting (June 2017).
