Department of Nuclear Power and Energy Safety Engineering
Special program for study
Nuclear Powre Generation Safety Enginnering
Institute of Nuclear Safety System, Incorporated
We are engaged in research for light water nuclear power plants actually generating electricity: elucidating mechanisms and developing countermeasures forstructual materials degradation caused by corrosion an radiation, prediction of crack initiation and progression and evaluation of structual integrity, developing countermeasures for wall thinning caused by water flow and damage caused by temperature fluctuations.
Nuclear Power Plant System Safety Engineering
Japan Atomic Energy Agency
We are engaged in education and research on system design addressing system measurement and control, system operation methods, irradiation behavior of nuclear reactor fuel material, evaluation of material trol, system operation methods, irradiation behavior of nuclear reactor fuel material, evaluation of material damage, flaw detection methods, etc. while taking into account the possibility of human error to enhance nuclear power plant system safety based on experience with accidents, as well as R&D, equipment manufacturing, local installation and construction, and FBR plant operations conducted in the process of putting FBR into practical use.
Research Institute of Nuclear Engineering
EStablished in April 2009, the Research Institute of Nuclear Engineering is comprised of seven departments, namely the Basic Nuclear Engineering Department, the Fast Reactor Enginnering Department, the New Reactor Engineering Department, the Fuel Material Engineering Department, the Decommissioning Research Department, the Medical Physics and Chemistry Department and the Nuclear Disaster Prevention Department. We are engaged in the development of word-class, distinctive nuclear power human resources and R&D to contribute to the implementation of Japan’s nuclear power nation plan and to the development of a world with a sustainable energy infrastructure in harmony with nature through development of overseas human resources, primarily form Asia.
