Framatome, Ultra Safe partner to manufacture TRISO and FCM fuel
Framatome and Ultra Safe Nuclear announced on January 26 that they intend to form a joint venture to manufacture commercial quantities of tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particles and Ultra Safe’s proprietary fully ceramic microencapsulated (FCM) fuel.
The companies have signed a nonbinding agreement to integrate their resources to bring commercially viable, fourth-generation nuclear fuel to market for Ultra Safe’s micro-modular reactor (MMR) and other advanced reactor designs.

This workshop will demonstrate a new tool for use with the MCNP(TM) radiation transport code tool known as p-study. The p-study tool effectively does total Monte Carlo by perturbing all physical configuration values accessible from the input stack and allows these to be propagated into a comprehensive tally uncertainty in the end. Specifically this workshop will serve as a tutorial on a new Operational MCNP GUI (OMG) that allows users to generate and run p-study to conduct this total Monte Carlo on their input stacks. Attendees are recommended to have MCNP6.2 installed on their laptop if they want to download the GUI and follow along in the tutorial, otherwise attendees can just observe. The workshop will start with a brief statistics review sufficient to understand p-study and will assume attendees have at least some familiarity with the MCNP code.
