47 thesis proposals for 2021!
This year, IRSN is proposing 47 topics in all scientific disciplines, for PhD theses that will start in October 2021. A full description of each thesis project is available online, in the "Theses" section of the IRSN website, enabling applications to be filed directly with the thesis supervisor.
Modelling the behaviour of overhead crane bridges during an earthquake: call for participation in an international benchmark
From June 2020, IRSN and EDF organise an international benchmark, under
the aegis of the OECD/NEA, to compare the models used to simulate the
behaviour of overhead crane bridges during an earthquake. The failure of
this equipment widely used in the nuclear industry can, for certain
scenarios, contribute significantly to the probability of reactor core
meltdown. Assessing their behaviour in the event of an earthquake is
therefore a major safety issue. This assessment involves modelling the
mechanical behaviour of these devices during an earthquake, which
represents a scientific challenge due to the importance of contact
IRSN and the University of Tokyo join forces to study aerosol dispersion
In November 2019, IRSN and the University of Tokyo signed a Memorandum of Understanding seeking to further our knowledge of the interactions that take place between droplets and solid aerosols. This has already involved around ten tests carried out at IRSN's TOSQAN facility, the most recent of which was completed on February 14, 2020.
Research on co-activity: initial findings and four-year extension
The IRSN has just published its initial findings following research carried out under the COSEA program, focusing on co-activity during the complex project to extend line 14 of the Paris metro. A promising first stage has led the IRSN and its partners to extend the project to 2023.
