Research Statement


The reactor core reload design includes fuel lattices design, axial fuel assembly design (BWR only), loading pattern design, and control rod pattern design (BWR only). The optimization algorithm will be applied to achieve automatic design objective for each module. Then, the large- scale automation/optimization system that contains these modules will be developed in a coupled way.  The success of the research will dramatically reduce the design effort.
