IVMR-2020 — Final Seminar of the IVMR Project
21 Jan 2020 - 23 Jan 2020 • Juan les Pins, France
Organizer:
Institute of Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN)
Abstract:
Currently, new reactor designs (AP1000 and HPR1000 in particular) involving an IVR strategy were built in different countries and some of them are already in operation. Therefore it is important to share, as much as possible, scientific knowledge and methodology about IVR in order to help safety authorities making decisions. For this, a consensus on several issues should be reached between R&D experts.

The first objective of this seminar is to present the main outcomes of the European project IVMR (2015-2019) and to draw conclusions from that project. Among the main issues, the impact of transient evolutions of oxide and metal layers on the focusing effect and the issue of the long term mechanical behaviour of the ablated vessel wall will be discussed in details. Issues about external cooling efficiency, innovations and back fitting will also be addressed.

A second objective is to bring together an international panel of actors involved in severe accident management issues, either from the regulatory side or from research or industry, in order to share knowledge and views about the IVR strategy. Through panel discussions and technical sessions, all the important issues of the IVR strategy will be covered and discussed. The technical sessions will also include presentations from experts out of the IVMR project, in order to give the widest overview as possible on the IVR topic.

The IVMR seminar will be followed by a forum, open to all participants interested in continuing R&D about IVR. The purpose of the forum is to provide inputs for the R&D orientation of new research projects and to discuss about possible frameworks to continue collaborative R&D actions about IVR. This forum will focus on defining priorities for R&D on IVR and listing all the relevant experimental facilities or possible new facilities that could provide new and useful data for the improvement of the evaluation of IVR.

Particle growth in turbulence
18 May 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Stockholm, Sweden
Organizer:
Nordita - Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The question of how particles and droplets can grow in a turbulent environment is of great current interest in many fields, in astrophysics, cloud microphysics, in biology, and in the engineering sciences. For example, coagulation and condensation in turbulent clouds turn microscopic cloud droplets into rain drops. In astrophysics, planetesimals are thought to form by aggregation of microscopic dust grains in the turbulent environment surrounding a forming star. In both cases, turbulence is believed to be a crucial factor for particle growth. Yet the microscopic mechanisms determining this growth are far from understood. In the past few years there has been substantial progress in understanding the mechanisms that determine how particles move in turbulence, albeit mostly for simplified model systems. The challenge is now to understand how these mechanisms lead to rapid particle growth.

Are there Universal Laws in Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics?
18 Sep 2020 • Stockholm, Sweden
Organizer:
Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita)
Abstract:
Equilibrium statistical physics provides an extremely powerful, universal formalism that tells us how many-particle systems in thermal equilibrium behave, and how we can characterize their properties by only a few macroscopic quantities. However, most systems and processes found in nature are out of equilibrium. Think of any living organism, or directed transport in cells mediated by molecular motors. Often these systems consist of only a few entities and are so small that thermal fluctuations play a prominent role. It has been a vision from the early days of statistical mechanics to develop a theoretical description for such small non-equilibrium systems that is comparably powerful and universal as is equilibrium statistical physics. The aim of this program is to bring together the leading experts in (non-equilibrium) statistical physics to critically discuss and evaluate the latest developments towards a universal theory for non-equilibrium systems.

Is There a Common Thread to Layering in Atmospheres, Oceans and Plasmas?
05 Jan 2021 - 08 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A fascinating and surprising phenomenon that can occur in fluid and plasma turbulence is the spontaneous formation of arrays of layers in which material properties such as density adopt a so-called “staircase” structure. The most striking examples are potential vorticity staircases in planetary atmospheres, and thermohaline staircases in the oceans. Theoretical considerations suggest that layering also plays an important role in stellar interiors (particularly through various double-diffusive processes) and in fusion confinement devices (the so-called E x B staircase). Understanding the phenomenon of layering is, therefore, not only of intrinsic scientific interest (e.g., is there a common thread to layering in these very different contexts?), but is also crucial for an accurate description of turbulent transport in, for example, models of large-scale ocean flow, the evolution of stellar interiors and confinement in tokamaks.
