Art exhibit visits IIT
Nuclear power plant cooling towers are easily recognizable for their familiar hyperboloid shape. But an art exhibit running at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago aims to give visitors a different perspective.
The Art of the Reactor, an exhibit by the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and hosted by IIT’s Lewis College of Science and Letters, opened on November 4 and runs until Sunday, December 4 at Hermann Hall on the IIT campus.

In recent years there has been an increased interest in advanced reactors in the United States. Several concepts are being proposed by multiple vendors and start-ups, with an accelerated pathway to market. In particular, DOE has recently issued two awards aimed at deploying demonstration reactors and several more aimed at accelerating current research activities. An important activity related to commercialization of these concepts is licensing and the overall role of the regulator. Furthermore, central to licensing and safety analysis is the understanding of thermal-hydraulics phenomena, which present considerable differences compared to light-water reactors. In this panel we will address current thermal-hydraulic issues in the licensing of advanced reactor concepts and ongoing research on this topic. This panel serves as a follow-up to the previous panel discussion from the 2021 Winter meeting.
