27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

During the pre-conceptual design phase of fusion devices such as the European demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO), systems codes provide a fast evaluation of optimal design points and highlight high impact areas. However, determining or evaluating a design point at such an early stage comes with uncertainties in many of the design parameters…

29th European Safety and Reliability Conference, Hannover, Germany, 22-26 September 2019

Nuclear data is at the heart of all nuclear science and technology. It represents the interaction probabilities of neutrons with matter and is used to construct distributions in particle transport Monte Carlo codes. Due to the difficulty and cost of conducting experiments, experimental reaction data is usually sparse or not present for the majority…

ICVRAM - ISUMA UNCERTAINTIES, Florianoplis, Brazil, 8-11 April 2018

Nuclear fusion, the process by which the Sun generates energy, is proposed as one solution to secure the future of global energy supply. If successful it will provide an unlimited source of clean energy. Probably the most promising approach to harnessing fusion for energy production is that of the Tokamak device, a magnetic confinement device of to…
