Prediction of the Effects of Radiation FOr reactor pressure vessel and in-core Materials using multi-scale modelling - 60 years foreseen plant lifetime
ID: 232612
Start date: 2009-03-01, End date: 2013-12-31
In nuclear power plants, materials may undergo degradation due to severe irradiation conditions that may limit their operational life. Utilities that operate these reactors need to quantify the ageing and the potential degradations of some essential structures of the power pl...

Towards a European Network of Excellence in Biological Dosimetry
ID: 230660
Start date: 2009-02-01, End date: 2009-07-31
In recent years a number of accidents have occurred that show the necessity to be prepared for a possible large-scale radiological accident or a terrorist attack, where the casualties will be members of the public. The accident may likely have an international scale and the r...

A joint EC/NEA EBS project synthesis report
ID: 226103
Start date: 2008-12-01, End date: 2009-11-30
This project will involve the preparation of a synthesis report on Engineered Barrier Systems (EBS) and the safety of deep geological repositories for high-level radioactive waste. The objective of the report will be to bring together the main conclusions from a series of key...

Prospective cohort studies of children with substantial medical diagnostic exposure
ID: 212839
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2009-11-30
The growing use of diagnostic X-rays and of high-dose techniques (CT, interventions) in children and adolescents is a topic of concern in radiological protection. Studies of other populations indicate that children are generally more sensitive to health effects of radiation t...

REDOX PHENOMENA CONTROLLING SYSTEMS
ID: 212287
Start date: 2008-04-01, End date: 2012-03-31
Main objectives of ReCosy are the sound understanding of redox phenomena controlling the long-term release/retention of radionuclides in nuclear waste disposal and providing tools to apply the results to Performance Assessment/Safety Case. Although redox is not a new geochemi...

The mechanisms of cardiovascular risks after low radiation doses
ID: 211403
Start date: 2008-02-01, End date: 2011-06-30
Recent epidemiologic evidence suggests that moderate and low radiation doses to the heart may result in a moderate, but significant increase in cardiovascular mortality. So far, the pathogenesis of radiation induced heart disease has not been studied in detail. Pathohistologi...

Treatment and Disposal of Irradiated Graphite and Other Carbonaceous Waste
ID: 211333
Start date: 2008-04-01, End date: 2013-03-31
Gas-Cooled Reactors (GCR), RBMK and some Material Test Reactors (MTR) make use of graphite as moderator of the fuel, structures of the core and/or thermal columns. During operation, the graphite and other carbonaceous materials like carbon brick, pyrocarbon and silicon carbid...
