Aquest grup integra tres línies de recerca que vénen col·laborant en els últims anys, i que tenen en comú la seva relació amb la tecnologia nuclear i les bases que la sustenten. Les línies són: la termohidràulica i seguretat, la tecnologia de la fusió, i la mesura de dades nuclears. L'activitat científica està orientada a la consolidació i millora de les competències en l’àmbit de la simulació de centrals nuclears per analitzar de forma independent possibles escenaris a les centrals del nostre país, participar en els avenços en el camp de la seguretat nuclear a nivell estatal i internacional, l'estudi de la tecnologia de la fusió nuclear, i a la obtenció de dades nuclears d’utilitat per aconseguir millorar el coneixement del cicle del combustible nuclear durant l'operació de les centrals nuclears i en la transmutació de residus radioactius, l'estudi de les propietats de diversos nuclis atòmics sota l’acció dels neutrons, i el desenvolupament mètodes i instruments científics.

    The U-238 fission cross section is an international standard beyond 2 MeV where the fission plateau starts. However, due to its importance in fission reactors, this cross-section should be very accurately known also in the ...
  • High accuracy U-235(n,f) data in the resonance energy region 

    Paradela, C.; Durán, I.; Tassan Got, Laurence; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere; Pretel Sánchez, Carme (EPJ Web of Conferences, 2015)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The U-235 neutron-induced cross section is widely used as reference cross section for measuring other fission cross sections, but in the resonance region it is not considered as an IAEA standard because of the scarce ...
  • Fission fragment angular distribution measurements of U-235 and U-238 at CERN n_TOF facility

    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Neutron-induced fission cross sections of U-238 and U-235 are used as standards in the fast neutron region up to 200 MeV. A high accuracy of the standards is relevant to experimentally determine other neutron reaction cross ...
