Post-SMiRT Seminar on NEW BUILD NUCLEAR POWER PLANT DESIGN and SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS.
12-13 October 2017
Starting at 10am
Deadline for Abstract submission: July 31st, 2017Call For Abstract
The International Association of Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology (IASMIRT) is organizing post-SMiRT Seminar
for the first time in İstanbul, Türkiye. The purpose of this seminar is to provide an international forum for detailed
technical discussion of topics relevant to the analysis and design of new build nuclear power plants. In particular,
technical issues related to upstream activities in a new build project will be discussed. These will include the required
infrastructure, site related issues and design features that needs to be reviewed to evaluate the feasibility of the
project. The seminar will also address concerns resulting from the Fukushima accident on site evaluation and design
of new projects.
The planned technical sessions will address the following areas:
The seminar consists of a single track of technical sessions with invited papers which will be conducted on October 12-13, 2017. Authors are requested to limit their fory presentations to 30 minutes; including a minimum of 5 minutes for discussion. Full papers (12 pages maximum) need to be provided by September 1st, 2017.
