Uncertainty quantification of spent nuclear fuel isotopic compositions

Start date: 01/11/2017
End date: 30/11/2021
University: Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
Promotor: Andreas Pautz

Research performed by Shama Ahmed.

This project will

  • Validate calculations of SNFs isotopic contents based on SFCOMPO database, and SNFs decay heats based on Clab measurements
  • Perform sensitivity, uncertainty propagation, and correlation analyses of SNF calculations
  • Set up machine learning targeting predictive models of calculational performance (e.g., computational biases) based on features of the calculational models
