  1. 1. Accident-tolerant uranium nitride

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Aneta Herman; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accident-tolerant fuel; uranium nitride; chromium; glucose; internal sol-gel;

    Sammanfattning : After the nuclear accident at Fukushima-Daiichi in 2011, a search for alternatives to a current fuel-clad standard UO2-Zircaloy was encouraged by government and industry and novel fuel-clad systems were selected. These systems are often referred to as Accident Tolerant systems, because of an improved response to severe accidents. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : In many countries over the world (including Sweden), metal toxicity in freshwater resources causes a severe drinking water quality problem and poses a threat to the environment and human health. Among the different toxic metals in the water resources of Sweden, arsenic and uranium are the biggest threats to health. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The mobility of natural uranium at Forsmark, Sweden, through geologic time

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Författare :Lindsay Krall; Carl-Magnus Mörth; David Read; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uranium; radium; mineralogy; geochronology; submarine groundwater discharge; spent nuclear fuel; geochemical modelling; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, the response of uranium minerals and poorly crystalline phases to changes in geochemical conditions through geological time has been assessed in order to understand the mobility of natural uranium in the fracture network of a proposed site for a spent nuclear fuel repository in Forsmark, Sweden. Identification and characterization of solid phase uranium have been performed through electron microprobe analysis and optical petrography (Article I). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies of actinides in a superanoxic fjord

    Detta är en avhandling från Radiation Physics, Lund

    Författare :Per Roos; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Geology; colloids.; TIMS; pore water; remobilisation; sediments; ultrafiltration; uranium; thorium; americium; plutonium; Anoxic; Framvaren; fjord; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Sammanfattning : Water column and sediment profiles of plutonium, americium, thorium and uranium have been obtained in the superanoxic Framvaren fjord, southern Norway. The concentrations of bomb test fallout Pu, Am as well as 'dissolved' Th in the bottom water are the highest recorded in the marine environment. LÄS MER

  5. 5. High Performance Fuels for Water-Cooled Reactor Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Kyle D. Johnson; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nuclear fuel; accident tolerant fuel; uranium nitride; uranium silicide; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Investigation of nitride fuels and their properties has, for decades, been propelled on the basis of their desirable high metal densities and high thermal conductivities, both of which oer intrinsic advantages to performance, economy, and safety in fast and light water reactor systems. In this time several key obstacles have been identied as impeding the implementation of these fuels for commercial applications; namely chemical interactions with air and steam, the noted diculty in sintering of the material, and the high costs associated with the enrichment of 15N.
