Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar 2018

Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering

The Nuclear Institute and The International Society of Multiphysics
17 October 2018
Double Tree Hilton in Manchester


Following a valuable first event in 2017, this year delegates will explore the latest advances in mathematical modelling and simulation as well as the deployment of new techniques used in nuclear science and engineering.   Key topics will include Fusion Technology, Data Assimilation & Uncertainty and Validation & Verification.

Delegates will hear from leading authorities at the forefront of advancing innovation in Nuclear industry, regulators and academia.

This year’s speakers include leading experts from Office for Nuclear Regulation, Fraser-Nash Consultancy, UKAEA, Wood, Imperial College London and University of Cambridge.


Chairing the event is Professor M Moatamedi, University of Manchester and Dr F Rayment OBE, NIRO

FUSION TECHNOLOGY: This session will focus on advances and developments used in the fusion reactors to examine the plant behaviours under extreme conditions.

DATA ASSIMMILATION & UNCERTAINTY: This session will concentrate on data use and uncertainty analyses in predicting the progression of nuclear accident scenarios.

VALIDATION & VERIFICATION: This session will cover the impact of experimental data in enhancing the reliability and credibility of numerical modelling techniques.

A full agenda will be available shortly.  Register your interest by emailing providing the name of the event to receive a direct email.
