Neutron noise monitoring during plant operation expedites flexure replacement at Salem-1
The nuclear industry has historically relied on intermittent ultrasonic test and visual inspections of pressurized water reactor components to identify and manage degradation. While this reactive approach has proven to be effective, imagine a scenario in which the degradation could propagate throughout the reactor internals, making a more proactive measure necessary to avoid a major enterprise risk to the plant. Could a utility identify the onset of degradation within the reactor internals during plant operation? If so, could a repair be developed prior to the next refueling outage to prevent additional, cascading degradation? That is exactly the situation that Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) and Westinghouse engineers were able to navigate over the course of the 2019–2020 operating cycle at Salem Unit 1, resulting in a tremendous success for the plant and a historic landmark in the nuclear industry, while earning the team a 2021 Nuclear Energy Institute Top Innovative Practice (TIP) award.

The International Conference on Mathematics and Computational Methods Applied to Nuclear Science and Engineering
You may have questions and concerns due to this change. We are working hard now to provide refunds for the differential in registration fee if you already paid your in-person registration fee. We will also refund your registration if you do not wish to attend virtually. We will send out information on how you will present and listen to talks, how poster sessions will be presented, and arrangements for the Workshops. Please bear with us as we navigate these last couple of weeks until the meeting begins.
Thank you,M&C 2021 Organizing Committee
The International Conference on Mathematics and Computational Methods Applied to Nuclear Science and Engineering (M&C 2021) is a part of a series of topical meetings organized by the Mathematics and Computation Division of the American Nuclear Society. M&C conferences, held every two years, represent a series of international forums organized and sponsored to bring together worldwide expertise related to nuclear science or technology including mathematical and computational methods, numerical analysis, computer codes, computer architectures, and benchmarks for computationally solving problems in all disciplines encompassed by the Society.
