Should your tutor has certain demands for those format of your own exploration newspaper, check them before preparing one last draft. The most frequent formatting is shown here. Whenever you send in your paper, make sure you have a protect replicate. This list of will work reported shows up at the conclusion of the pieces of paper, after any endnotes. Start off their list with a new web page. The list has got the same functioning top of your head when the principal text. The page numbering during the jogging head persists uninterrupted through. One example is, if the text message within your research paper while using the supplied themes. So that you can stimulate and permit writers to completely cite and make on preceding do the job, the research section of paperwork could optionally carry on past the 8 page minimize for a couple of extra pages of content.

Severe Accident Simulation:
Panel Discussion moderated by Prof. Francesc Reventos I Puigjaner, Department for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, UPC

Panelists include, Chris Allison, Fernando Ortega, Robert Boire and Andrej Stritar.

  • Training policy. Is it the right time to include severe accident simulators as a mandatory tool for operators training?
  • The need of new tests. The results of severe accident simulation still show non-negligible dispersion when they are compared with experimental data of available tests. Further development nuclear safety related software would result in a clear future progress of code predictions or new experiments based on Fukushima experience would be needed for any improvement.
  • On-line use. Severe accident simulation appears as a tool to be used off and on line. The former use is well known, the latter needs some development. Such developments belong to near future?
