A review of workforce trends in the nuclear community
The nuclear community is undergoing a moment of unprecedented interest and growth not seen in decades. The passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act are providing a multitude of new funding opportunities for the nuclear community, and not just the current fleet. A mix of technologies and reactor types are being evaluated and deployed, with Vogtle Units 3 and 4 coming on line later this year, the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Projects of X-energy and TerraPower, and NuScale’s work with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to build a first-of-a-kind small modular reactor, making this is an exciting time to join the nuclear workforce.

H2 permeation behavior in a new molten salt of Flibe mixed with 0.5 wt% Ti powder is experimentally and analytically investigated. Ti powder included in Flibe can suppress H2 permeation for 70 hours lower than the H2 detection limit after the start of experiment. H2 diffusion behavior in the Flibe+Ti system is analyzed using an unsteady-diffusion equation. The time delay of overall H2 diffusion in the Flibe+Ti system is over 200 times larger than that in Flibe. The effective diffusivity and solubility in the Flibe+Ti system are determined from fitting the analytical solution to experimental H2 permeation rates.
