Neutron irradiation of ceramic construction materials for the Dual Fluid Reactor

Dual Fluid Reactor (DFR) is a novel concept of a reactor which is operating in temperature amounts to 1300oC. DFR need high temperature resistant materials that retain their mechanical properties and withstand corrosion processes under a large neutron flux. Good construction materials for DFR are hard ceramics  (such as Silicon Carbide, Zirconium Carbide and Titanium Carbide).

Probabilistic Safety Assessment: state of the art and approach to address multiple hazards

For a long period of time Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) for Nuclear Power Plants were performed using Fault Tree (FT) and Event Tree (ET) technique. This technique has its pros and cons as any other currently used methodology. After Fukushima Daiichi accident problem with addressing multiple hazards had arrived and many scientists are trying to address it with new approaches for example Bayesian techniques.
