Taheri and Colleagues Awarded $996,000 DoE Grant

As part of a team lead by University of Michigan researchers, Dr. Taheri’s group has received an Nuclear Engineering University Program award from the Department of Energy, titled, “Fission Product Transport in TRISO Particle Layers under Operating and Off-Normal Conditions”.

The goal of this project is to determine the diffusivity and other behaviors of key fission products (Ag, Cs, I, Te, Eu and Sr) through PyC and SiC both thermally, under irradiation and under stress using fission products introduction techniques that avoid the pitfalls of past experiments. The total amount for the award is $996K with $200K being allocated to Drexel.
