GEN IV Webinar Series 41: Performance Assessments for Fuels and Materials for Advanced Nuclear Reactors, May 28, 2020 at 8:30 am (EDT)


A host of novel fuel and material concepts are being investigated as part of the GenIV reactor development initiative. While many of these candidates are rooted in historical programs from previous reactor development campaigns, most of these concepts were never fully evalauted for long-term performance in non-LWR facilities. The performance data that is needed for candidate material downselection, feasibility studies, and eventual qualification is, currently, very costly in terms of monetary cost and human capital. The use of an ‘all of the above’ strategy for performance assessment is needed to reduce the cost of ushering materials through the qualification process. In this presentation, we will discuss the efforts that are currently underway, and those planned for the near future, to advance many of these candidates from concept to deployment.
