Simulation Helps European Nuclear Safeguards Activities
The increasing world energy demand pushes towards the search of sources alternative to coal and gas. The continuous increase of uranium production and demand (Figure 1) indicates that nuclear power is seen as a valuable source. Indeed, China, India, South Korea and Russia remain committed to it even after the Fukushima accident and the global uranium demand forecast indicates a long-term growth.
Computational Fluid Dynamics prevents engine damage in Ice Crystals conditions
In the last 10 years, a particular icing phenomenon has caused more than 100 aviation incidents at cruise in high altitudes. Such incidents involved aircraft engines that suffered from either a loss of power, combustor flameouts, complete failure due to compressor surge/stall, blade damage or excessive vibrations. These failures are thought to have been caused by Ice Crystals ingestion.
