Advanced Measuring (Instrumentation) Methods for Nuclear Installations

Description

In last decades, nuclear technology has developed rapidly and become more important to human society. Nuclear technology has many advantages, such as zero carbon emissions, energy independence, and safety. At present, nuclear installations are more prevalent than ever before. Therefore, with the rapid development and wide applications of nuclear technology, many new technologies have been emerging to guarantee its reliability and safety, where measuring devices and techniques that can exactly measure and monitor the nuclear installations show particular importance.

The research of measurement in nuclear installations involves many aspects, such as nuclear reactors, nuclear fuel cycle, safety and security, and environmental applications. Recently, a big number of advanced measuring devices and techniques have been widely applied in nuclear installations. Multifarious nuclear radiation detectors were used in nuclear radiation detection. A variety of measuring instruments (e.g., mechanical gauges, flow meters, pressure and temperature sensors) were employed to control the systems, monitor possible development of defects/failures, and particularly to prevent catastrophic accidents.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your original articles or review paper on research and development of advanced measuring devices and methods in nuclear installations. The special issue is soliciting all articles that will highlight recent major breakthroughs, progress, and challenges on instrumentation and measuring methods in nuclear installations. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Nuclear power reactors: instrumentation and measurement methods for nuclear reactors
  • Nuclear fuel cycle: instrumentation and measurement methods for nuclear fuel cycle
  • Safeguards and homeland security: nuclear instrumentation and measurement methods for safe and secure environmental applications
  • Nuclear accident, after action, and analysis: different measuring devices in accidental conditions, monitoring and alarming system for nuclear equipment in accidental conditions, and analysis of nuclear accident
