S13: Advanced Materials for Sustainable Nuclear Energy and Fusion Energy

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 1.35.23 PM


Development of advanced materials and their application for the safer and sustainable nuclear energy and for future fusion energy systems continues to attract growing attention. This symposium provides a venue for material scientists and nuclear engineers to discuss the opportunities and needs for key enabling materials in such energy systems, and the current state-of-theart science and technology of these materials ranging from materials design, processing and properties to their performance in harsh nuclear environments. We also will debate prospects of their commercial development, and qualification and licensing requirements. This symposium is cosponsored by ACerS Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division.


Proposed Session Topics


• Ceramics and composites technology for accident-tolerant LWR fuels and core


• Materials for advanced fission reactors and fusion energy


• Ceramics and composites for detection of nuclear radiation


• Joining and coating for reactor components


• Graphite and carbon materials


• Crystalline, amorphous and composite materials for waste immobilization


• Long-term behavior of waste forms thorough experiments and modeling


• Container corrosion in geological disposal conditions


• Novel techniques for characterization and processing of solid and liquid samples


• Fuel reprocessing and management of fission product elements


• Fundamental science of radiation damage, defect production, evolutions, and interactions


• Theory, modeling, and simulation of radiation effects in ceramics and composites


• Fuel and cladding evolution and performance modeling


• Codes and standards, design methodology
