May 29, 2016

A paper presented at the 17th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry in Hyderabad, India by Dr. Walter Wolf of Materials Design, recently received the John Schemel award for best paper at the conference.

 

The paper titled, “Effect of Hydrogen on Dimensional Changes of Zirconium and the Influence of Alloying Elements: First-Principles and Classical Simulations of Point Defects, Dislocation Loops, and Hydrides”, and was authored by a team of computational scientists of Materials Design, Mikael Christensen, Walter Wolf, Clive Freeman, and Erich Wimmer, together with Ronald Adamson, Zircology Plus; Lars Hallstadius, Westinghouse, Fuel Engineering; Paul Cantonwine, GNF; and Erik Mader, Electric Power Research Institute. The paper presents the highlights of the extensive work performed by the interdisciplinary team of authors, and funded in a long-standing relationship by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).
