Application of Defocusing Technique to Bubble Depth Measurement
(Virginia Tech, 2017)
The thesis presents a defocusing technique to extract bubble depth information. Typically, when a bubble is out of focus in an image, the bubble is ignored by applying a filter or thresholding. However, it is known that a ...
Mean-Field Parameter Study of Radiation-Induced Segregation in a Binary Metal Alloy
(Virginia Tech, 2020-01-29)
The purpose of this thesis is to broaden the tools and knowledge available for understanding the behavior of metals under irradiation to aid in the pursuit of advanced materials for deployment in Generation IV (Gen-IV) ...
Application of Optical Fiber Sensors for Quenching Temperature Measurement
(Virginia Tech, 2020-06-17)
The critical heat flux (CHF) point for a reactor core system is one of the most important factors to discuss in regards to reactor safety. If this point is reached, standard coolant systems are not enough to handle the ...
Separation and Properties of La₂O₃ in Molten LiF-NaF-KF Salt
(Virginia Tech, 2018-12-21)
Studies on nuclear technology have been ongoing since nuclear power became uniquely important to meet climate change goals while phasing out fossil fuels. Research on the fluoride salt cooled high temperature reactor (FHR), ...
Benchmarking of the RAPID Eigenvalue Algorithm using the ICSBEP Handbook
(Virginia Tech, 2019-09-17)
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the accuracy of the RAPID (Real-Time Analysis for Particle Transport and In-situ Detection) eigenvalue algorithm based on a few problems from the ICSBEP (International Criticality ...
Analysis and Improvement of the bRAPID Algorithm and its Implementation
(Virginia Tech, 2019-07-18)
This thesis presents a detailed analysis of the bRAPID (burnup for RAPID – Real Time Analysis for Particle transport and In-situ Detection) code system, and the implementation and validation of two new algorithms for ...
