Welcome to the INNUMAT Workshop in Madrid from 16 – 17 November 2023!
The event is organised by INNUMAT, Innovative Materials for Fission and Fusion, and open to all INNUMAT members as well as external participants.
The overall capacity is limited to 75 participants - an early registration is hence highly recommended!
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
It is well accepted that time horizons for nuclear materials development and qualification must be shortened to realize future nuclear energy concepts. Qualification of a new material as solution to be used in a nuclear power plant began with the acquisition and gathering of the data which describe the physical and mechanical behavior of this material, necessary to apply the component design rules available in the nuclear design code (RCC-MRx, ASME PVPC, or others).
Within the framework of the INNUMAT HORIZON EURATOM project this workshop will be organized to present and share different initiatives on the qualification of innovative materials as solution, as protective coating, not only applicable to nuclear reactors design and operation (both fission and fusion) but also in other applications such as concentrated solar power (CSP) or the automotive industry.
The workshop will be held at CIEMAT, 16th-17th November 2023. The first two sessions will be dedicated to qualification of nuclear materials, including a presentation about the EURATOM project INNUMAT and NUCOBAM projects, as well as the CEN workshop 064 Phase 4 on design and construction codes for Gen II to IV nuclear facilities. Session 3 will be dedicated to synergy action on qualification and standardization within the SNETP, EUROFusion project, concentrated solar power and automotive industry (ToughSteel project).
