Top Fuel, also called Light Water Reactor (LWR) Fuel Performance Meeting, is an annual topical meeting organized by the American Nuclear Society, the European Nuclear Society, the Atomic Energy Society of Japan, the Chinese Nuclear Society, the Korean Nuclear Society, and the International Atomic Energy Agency. Top Fuel's primary objective was to bring together leading specialists in LWR fuel from around the world to analyze advances in nuclear fuel technology and to use the findings of the latest cutting-edge research to help manufacture high performance nuclear fuels of today and tomorrow.
The conference had two plenary sessions, two special sessions, and numerous technical sessions organized into five technical track areas:
Track 1: Fuel Performance Reliability, Operations, and Maintenance Experience
Track 2: Advances in Fuel Technologies (e.g., Enhanced Accident Tolerant Fuel)
Track 3: Transient and Off-normal Fuel Behavior
Track 4: Used Fuel Storage, Transportation, and Reuse/Recovery
Track 5: Fuel Modeling and Analysis
The Top Fuel 2016 book is available as print on demand and may take up to two weeks for the order to be fulfilled.
