Containment System for Heating and Off-Gassing
TS-065424 — Due to environmental concerns and the decreasing supply of fossil fuels, there is substantial demand for nuclear-based energy production. Nuclear energy now provides about 10% of the world's electricity from about 440 power reactors and is the second largest source of low-carbon power. In addition, over 50 smaller countries utilize nuclear energy in about 220 research-size reactors. These reactors are used to produce medical and industrial isotopes and several other purposes.
It is essential to meet the safeguard requirements in liquid-fueled molten salt reactors, fuel salt transportation, and fuel cycle processes and to develop effective methods for measuring and monitoring the mass of molten fuel salt or coolant salt. However, due to the complex and dynamic nature o…

Fluid Active Flow Control Enabled Variable Turbine Vane
TS-065423 — Turbine aircraft engines (jet engines) are a type of propulsion system commonly used in aviation. These engines operate on jet propulsion, where air is drawn into the engine, mixed with fuel, ignited, and then expelled at high speed to generate thrust. Jet engines are used in commercial and military aircraft, as well as helicopters.
While turbine aircraft engines offer higher efficiency and performance than their counterparts, there is still a need to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gases. It’s estimated that jet engines account for over 2.5% of all CO2 emissions, and there are substantial …
