Understanding the Role of Fabrication Method on Metal Alloys Used in Nuclear Power Plants
07 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Esteban Bautista, Alexander Bullens, Janelle P Wharry
Current nuclear reactor components consist of forged or casted Iron-based or Nickel-based alloys. Both these fabrication techniques present challenges in long-term performance and structural integrity. A possible alternative investigated in this research includes Powder Metallurgy (PM)...
Multiscale Modelling of Nanoparticle Suspensions
12 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pietro Asinari
In the present work a multiscale modelling approach is implemented to relate the nanoscale phenomena to the macroscopic bulk properties of nano-suspensions. Specifically, Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations and Brownian Dynamics (BD) are synergistically integrated to understand the mechanisms...
Can we save lives with thermodynamics? Nanoengineering and Thermofluids for the Water-Food-Energy Nexus
27 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Warsinger
Climate change, degrading water resources, and economic and population growth are increasing the need for new science and technologies at the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. In enabling new and improved technologies to tackle these issues, new nanomaterials designed with systems-level thermodynamics is...
