About - What is Nuclear Research .net?

Nuclear Research .net will follow the 10 most critical problems in nuclear engineering research: what is needed and why, what is expected and when, what is done. CAE studies for Generation IV power plants and space applications will be produced. Edutainment digital content will be released in the form of e-books and podcasts. Nuclear Research .net is not affiliated with any private or public institution.

Updates are taken from the media releases of the main players in the field. At the end of the year, they are summarised into one e-book with internet references for own consultation. Critical areas covered: costs, current and prospective designs, radiation control, waste and reprocessing, extreme events, non-energy applications, space. Authored content for business customers is provided on request.

Author: Dr Giuseppe Cornacchia holds a PhD in Materials Science (Jan 2013), an MSc in Physics and Technology of Nuclear Reactors (Dec 2007) and a five-years Masters' degree equivalent in Nuclear Engineering (Mar 2003). He works as an independent applied researcher and digital entrepreneur.

C.A.E. Studies - Generation IV and space applications

Nuclear Research .net aims to give a contribution to Generation IV research and development and to space applications. In particular, we will investigate and model prospective components and layouts making use of virtual prototyping and probabilistic design.
