S13-International Symposium on Advanced Ceramics and Composites for Sustainable Nuclear Energy and Fusion Energy

Register for ICACC'15


Ceramics and ceramic composites continue to attract growing attention as the key enabling materials for the safer and sustainable nuclear energy and for future fusion energy systems. This symposium provides a venue for material scientists and nuclear engineers to discuss the opportunities and needs for advanced ceramics and composites in such energy systems, and the current state-of-the-art science and technology of these materials ranging from materials design, processing and properties to their performance in harsh nuclear environments. We will also debate prospects of their commercial development, and qualification and licensing requirements. This symposium, co-sponsored by the ACerS Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division, incorporates the 11th International Energy Agency Workshop on SiC/SiC Ceramic Composites for Fusion Energy Applications and the 4th International Workshop on Ceramic Composites for Advanced Fission.


Proposed Session Topics

  • SiC/SiC ceramic composites for fusion energy
  • Ceramics and composites for advanced fission reactors
  • Ceramics and composites technology for accident-tolerant LWR fuels and core
  • 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
  • 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
