Abstract
  The management of high radioactive spent nuclear fuel (SNF) from research and power reactors has become a key topic of discussion in the nuclear communities. Metal casks are used for the management and disposal of spent fuel and all types of radioactive waste worldwide. The spent fuel assemblies-contained ...  Read More

Abstract
  In the present work, a time-dependent neutron diffusion simulator is developed utilizing the second order of average current nodal expansion method. Generally, nodal methods can accurately simulate the reactor core with coarse meshes as long as the sizes of a fuel assembly. In this case, an adopted iterative ...  Read More

http://dx.doi.org/10.22034/rpe.2021.298764.1036

Abstract
  For configuring plasma focus device (PFD), the gap between electrodes is filled out with a gas at low pressure. When discharge is starting at the surface of the insulator, the gas breaks down, leading to the flow of the plasma current sheath toward the anode end. A homogeneous and symmetric current sheath ...  Read More
