    This workshop follows up the earlier Specialists Workshop on Advanced Instrumentation and Measurement Techniques for Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (SWINTH), held in Livorno, Italy, on 15-17 June 2016, organized by the SILENCE Network. Looking further back, the OECD/NEA/CSNI Specialists Meeting on Advanced Instrumentation and Measurement Techniques, held on 17-20 March 1997, in Santa Barbara, California, USA, was the last international workshop fully dedicated to the same topic. SWINTH-2019 combines the respective experiences and roles of OECD/NEA/CSNI/WGAMA and SILENCE in a joint organizational effort on a common goal.

    The revised rule on the acceptance of emergency core cooling system performance in 1988 triggered a significant interest in the development of codes and methodologies based on best estimate and uncertainty evaluation (BEPU). Starting from the list of requirements developed by USNRC and constituted by the CSAU (code scaling, applicability, and uncertainty evaluation) methodology, several BEPU methods were developed and applied around the world. Although 30 years have passed since the approval of the ECCS revised rule and notwithstanding numerous efforts made by different organizations, the BEPU methodologies still suffer to not be fully systematic and capable to deal with multi-physics and multi-scale issues.

    NINE, on behalf of GRNSPG, has organized the Specialists Workshop on Advanced Instrumentation and Measurement Techniques for Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (SWINTH-2016). The event was organized at the Grand Hotel Palazzo premises in Livorno, Italy. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together international experts on instrumentation, experiments and modeling in order to review recent instrumentation and techniques, identify the specific experimental needs that arose from the development of modern simulation tools and discuss further directions for instrumentation developments, modeling and experiments.

    NINE organized the Joint PKL3-ATLAS Workshop on Analytical Activities related to OECD PKL3 and OECD ATLAS Projects. The workshop was held at the Chamber of Commerce in Lucca, Italy. Main purpose of the workshop was to present and discuss results of the ATLAS, PKL, PMK, PACTEL and ROCOM analytical studies performed by participants in the PKL3/OECD and ATLAS/OECD projects.


    20-24 June 2016
    Lucca, Italy

    NINE organized three major WGFS events, held at the Chamber of Commerce premises in Lucca, Italy:
  • The Fourth meeting of the WGFS Task Group on the RIA fuel-rod code benchmark - ph. II
  • The WGFS 2016 interim meeting
  • The Pellet-Cladding Interaction (PCI) in Water Cooled Reactors workshop
  • The workshop focused on identifying the current status of experimental and analytical studies related to Pellet-Cladding Interaction (PCI) for Water-Cooled Reactors. In particular, recommendations from the NEA PCI workshop (Report NEA n. 6004) have been reviewed and progress made have been identified.

    NURETH is an important series of international topical meetings in nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics and related areas such as nuclear reactor safety. This is the only major conference series devoted solely to the advancement of knowledge in the nuclear reactor thermal -hydraulics field. It covers all aspects of thermal-hydraulics assumed in the different types of nuclear reactors of current and future generations NINE contributed to the organization of NURETH-15 in cooperation with the University of Pisa and the support of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It saw the participation of over 500 participants.
