  1. 1. ENVIRONMENTAL RADIOLOGICAL STUDIES OF KVARNTORPSHÖGEN Dose and Radiological Risk Assessments for Humans and Biota

    University essay from

    Author : Felicia Hultqvist; [2021-04-06]
    Keywords : Medical physics; NORM; TENORM; Shale ash; Uranium; Polonium; Radiological risk; Humans; Biota;

    Abstract : Background: The pile Kvarntorpshögen and the lakes Surpölen and Norrtorpssjön are the remains of an industry which mined and processed oil shales to extract oil during World War II. The pile mainly consists of shale ash, a waste from the production, while the lakes are nowadays water-filled mining pits. READ MORE

  2. 2. Derivation of the angular momentum of primary fission fragments from isomeric yield ratio by TALYS using Python

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Keywords : Nuclear physics; nuclear fission; angular momentum; fission fragments; isomeric yield ratios; fission products;

    Abstract : The general fission process is well known and is applied in nuclear power plants all over the world. However many properties of fission fragments are still not well understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Uncertainty & Sensitivity Analysis of Nuclear Fuel Using Transuranus & Dakota

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Udyanth Vaidya; [2021]
    Keywords : Nuclear; Nuclear Energy; SUNRISE; Transuranus; Dakota; LFR; Lead cooled fast reactor; Simulations; modelling; fuel performance code;

    Abstract : With the initiative taken by the SUNRISE project (Sustainable Nuclear Energy Research in Sweden) to construct a Lead-cooled research reactor, this thesis intends to extend the knowledge within nuclear fuel development. By using integral iterative modelling and simulating techniques that mimic real-world phenomena, novel fuel materials like uranium nitride are assessed for future validation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Removal of PFASs and Uranium from Drinking Water Using SorbixTM Anion Exchange Resin : Effects of Sodium Chloride on the Removal Efficiency

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Abstract : The increasing awareness towards PFAS pollution makes it increasingly important to treat. Many agencies over the globe, including the Swedish Food Agency, are introducing ever so strict control over PFASs in drinking water. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of uranium oxide powders and sinterability

    University essay from KTH/Kemiteknik

    Author : Joakim Ceder; [2021]
    Keywords : uranium dioxide; sinterability; reduction; pore former; chemical activity; urandioxid; sintringsaktivitet; reduktion; porbildare; kemisk aktivitet;

    Abstract : Uranoxid (UOx) är ett energitätt material som ofta används i kärnbränsle. UOx-pulver pressas och sintras för att tillverka urandioxidkutsar som förs in i bränslestavar. Stavarna monteras slutligen ihop till ett bränsleknippe. Tillverkningsprocessens stabilitet och förutsägbarhet är viktiga. READ MORE
