    We apply an atomistic modeling approach to deal with interfacial phenomena in high-density uranium fuels. The effects of Si, as additive to Al or as U-Mo-particles coating, on the behavior of the Al/U-Mo interface is modeled by using the Bozzolo-Ferrante-Smith (BFS) method for alloys. The basic...

  • Nuclear super-fuel becomes too hot to handle. Edwards, Rob // New Scientist;4/12/2008, Vol. 198 Issue 2651, p8 

    The article discusses the potentials and risks of nuclear super-fuel uraniun. Less fuel will be needed and there will also be less waste to deal with if uranium is made to burn stronger, hotter and longer in nuclear reactors. The danger would come if there were a sudden loss of cooling water,...
