SFEN’s Technological Innovations in Nuclear Civil Engineering (TINCE 2020) would like to invite papers to be presented at the Conference to be held on Monday, October 12, to Wednesday, October 14, 2020, at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.
There will be three parallel tracks, with one track being coordinated by EPRI ANT (Advanced Nuclear Technologies) Program:
- Innovations in Numerical Methods and Analytical Approaches: This track will showcase papers and presentations on new and emerging approaches for the analysis of nuclear structures including power plants (ALWRs, SMRs, MSRs, etc.), DOE type structures, waste storage structures, etc. Including innovations in soil-structure-soil interaction, vibration analysis, impact analysis, seismic analysis, multi-hazard analysis, etc.
- Innovations in Design and Engineering: This track will showcase papers and presentations on innovative new designs and engineering technologies, and innovations in construction methods being developed and deployed to enhance the performance of nuclear structures including power plants (ALWRs, SMRs, MSRs, etc.), DOE type structures, waste storage structures, etc. Including innovations in design methods, approaches, and the use of specially designed / engineered elements, components, sub-assemblies to mitigate design-basis, and beyond design-basis multi-hazard scenarios.
- EPRI-Sponsored Track on Future of Modular Construction in Nuclear: This track will focus on the technical challenges and opportunities of modular composite construction, design, inspection, and licensing. Including topics such as: constructability, welding and inspection, non-destructive evaluations, codes and standards, enhancing supply chain, and new applications in ALWRs, SMRs, MSRs, etc.
