October 26, 2017   Mol (BELGIUM)

During the training course on October 25, the following topics will be treated:

  • Observables of fission and fission products
  • Observables of spent fuel: n, gamma, heat and radiochemistry
  • Prompt neutron/gamma in fission
  • Physics of fission yield models
  • Q value
  • Activation/depletion of reactor fuel

During the Topical Day on October 26, the following topics will be treated:
