57th ISODARCO Course "The Past and Future of Arms Control, Non-proliferation and Disarmament"
06 Jan 2019 - 13 Jan 2019 • Andalo, Trento, Italy
We are living in a nuclear era of unprecedented changes. For decades, arms control and nonproliferation were a large part of the answer to the crucial question of containing the dangers created by nuclear weapons. Years of bilateral and multilateral negotiations gradually built up an extensive architecture of arrangements designed to promote stability, limit arms racing, prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, provide mechanisms for crisis management, combat nuclear terrorism, address regional nuclear dangers, and contribute to confidence building between adversaries. Today, the existing arms control and nonproliferation infrastructure is eroding while deteriorating relationships between nuclear powers and striking technological advances are raising new risks. Can arms control be adapted to the emerging technological era? Meanwhile, as indicated by the adoption of the UN treaty banning nuclear weapons, much of the world demands nuclear disarmament. What are the politics and prospects for eliminating nuclear weapons?

Radiation Effects on Material Properties Seminar
07 Mar 2019 - 08 Mar 2019 • Palma de Mallorca, Spain
This course is directed at engineers, physicists and materials scientists with an interest in component behaviour in nuclear reactor cores. The primary aim is to give a practical understanding of how material properties are affected by irradiation and how this impacts the reactor operation and the useful life of a given component in the reactor. The course will provide reactor design engineers and reactor operations staff an appreciation for materials selection in reactor construction and also provide some of the tools needed to predict material property changes that occur over the life of the reactor. The focus will be on radiation effects on material properties; corrosion and other reactions with the coolant will not be addressed

PWR Reactor Design and Operation Seminar
14 Mar 2019 - 15 Mar 2019 • Palma de Mallorca, Spain
This course provides an overview of all aspects of PWR plant and fuel design including normal operation, accident mitigation, the fuel reload analysis process, operating experience issues, and computer codes used for PWR analyses. The generic characteristics of a PWR are considered followed by an overview of the major plant systems and normal core operation. Details of the three US PWR vendor designs are examined. Major PWR accident mitigation systems are reviewed as well as characteristics of significant accident scenarios analysed. Next, PWR fuel component design and function are described in detail, including material selection. Significant analysis requirements, such as critical heat flux and reactivity control, are discussed as well as the cycle reload analysis process. Lastly, operating experience challenges and current state codes for PWR analysis are reviewed.

NuCoSS-19 — Nuclear Corrosion Summer School 2019
07 Jul 2019 - 12 Jul 2019 • Hotel Špik close to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia
The second edition of the Nuclear Corrosion Summer School (NuCoSS-19) is co-organized by the EC project MEACTOS and by Working Party 4 “Nuclear Corrosion” of the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC, event no. 440) and will take place at Hotel Špik in the beautiful alpine area of Slovenia.

Corrosion of nuclear materials, i.e. the interaction between these materials and their environments, is a major issue for plant safety as well as for operation and economic competitiveness. Understanding these corrosion mechanisms, the systems and materials they affect, and the methods to accurately measure their incidence is of critical importance to the nuclear industry. Combining assessment techniques and analytical models into this understanding allows operators to predict the service life of corrosion-affected nuclear plant and storage canister materials, and to apply the most appropriate maintenance and mitigation options to ensure safe and economic long-term operation and waste storage.

The summer school will cover all necessary topics, starting with fundamental electrochemistry, to provide a self-consistent understanding of nuclear corrosion issues.
