Defence of dissertation in the field of advanced energy systems, Asko Arkoma, M.Sc.(Tech.)
Computational modelling of nuclear fuel in design basis accidents
Asko Arkoma, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Modelling design basis accidents LOCA and RIA from the perspective of single fuel rods" on 8 March 2018 at 13 o'clock (1 PM) at the Aalto University School of Science. A statistical analysis methodology for the evaluation of the number of failing fuel rods in loss-of-coolant accident was developed, and the underlying factors affecting the fuel rod failures were disclosed by means of sensitivity analysis. The SCANAIR code, designed for modelling fuel behaviour in reactivity-initiated accidents, was adapted for boiling water reactor (BWR) conditions.
