|15 May 2023||LEI participation in EURAD ACED activities
EURAD activities cover high priority common interests of different actors involved in safe radioactive waste management. One of the EURAD work packages, WP2 ACED, is devoted to Assessment of Chemical Evolution of ILW and HLW Disposal Cells.
|28 Dec 2022||LEI involvement in EURAD HITEC benchmarks
Lithuanian Energy Institute contributes to the analysis of temperature influence on clay-based material behaviour
|28 Dec 2022||LEI researcher’s internship at IRSN with respect to R2CA project mobility program
During the internship the phenomena of High Burnup Structure (HBS) formation was investigated. Working with locally developed mechanistic fission product release code called MFPR-F researcher participated in the code coupling effort, where MFPR code was integrated into TRANSURANUS fuel performance code.
|28 Dec 2022||ICONDE research project “Innovation in concrete design for hazardous waste management applications” workshop at Lithuanian Energy Institute
ICONDE project conducts research into concrete design for hazardous waste management applications.
|26 Sep 2022||Towards Harmonisation in Licensing of Future Nuclear Power Technologies in Europe
In the framework of the Euratom Research and Training Programme, HARMONISE (a project expected to start in mid-2022) will study relevant research and cooperation activities in standardization and nuclear safety considering also the lessons learnt from the stress tests performed in the EU. The project is coordinated by LEI and involves nine ETSON members along with partners representing research organisations, regulators and industry.
|26 Sep 2022||OpenFOAM turbulent combustion solver development at Lithuanian Energy Institute
Scientists of Lithuanian Energy Institute have been developing an open-source turbulent combustion solver flameFoam, based on OpenFOAM toolkit. Code to code analysis and comparisons with experiments showed that flameFoam mostly corresponds to the state-of-the-art currently achieved in the field.
|26 Sep 2022||Lithuanian Energy Institute contributes to fusion research at JET facility
For the examination of plasma and impurity transport in the DT experimental campaign, energy balance, dependency on discharge, and the time evolution of radiation loss profiles are provided by LEI scientists. Indeed, the record braking pulse is also being analyzed here at LEI.
|20 Dec 2021||Numerical simulation of shock absorber used for the safeguard of casks with spent fuel in case dropping
To reduce SNF cask failure risk in the ISFSF building areas, where SNF cask could be lifted more than 30 cm, special design shock absorbers are installed. The main function of these shock absorbers is to reduce the dynamic loads to a fully loaded SNF cask (weight 77 - 89 t) in case of dropping and prevent or minimise the possibility to lose the tightness of the SNF cask and release of radioactive materials from SNF rod(s). Evaluation of the shock absorbers capability to withstand the dynamic load in case of an accident was performed.
|20 Dec 2021|| LEI involvement in ETSON-SAMHYCO-NET benchmark
Scientists of Lithuanian Energy Institute have recently collaborated with colleagues from other European TSOs and ETSON partners in research activities – BARCO and ETSON-SAMHYCO-NET benchmarks.
