Post-SMiRT23 Seminar

Post-SMiRT Seminar on NEW BUILD NUCLEAR POWER PLANT DESIGN and SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS.

When

21st to 23rd October 2015
Starting at 10am

Where

Istanbul
Turkey

Extended Deadline for Abstract submission: September 13th, 2015

OBJECTIVE and TOPICS

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:

Required infrastructure

Post Fukushima Evaluation and Design for External Hazards

Seismic Base Isolation Technology and Applicability to New build projects

Development and Integration of Quality Assurance and Safety Culture



 

STRUCTURE

The seminar consists of a single track of technical sessions with invited papers which will be conducted on October 21, 22 and 23, 2015. Authors are requested to limit their fory presentations to 30 minutes; including a minimum of 5minutes for discussion. Full papers (12 pages maximum) need to be provided by September 30, 2015.

 

DATES

  • Extended Deadline for Abstract submission: September 13th, 2015
  • Deadline for Full Paper submission: September 30th, 2015
  • Early Registration: September 15, 2015
  • Receipt of Fees: October 1, 2015
