Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.

In this work, we report on the development of a time-averaged Eulerian multiphase approach applied in the wall boiling process especially in the forced convective boiling process. Recently, in order to obtain accurate bubble dynamics and reduce case dependency, a single bubble model for nucleate boiling based on known published models was developed. The model considers geometry change and dynamic contact and inclination angles during bubble growth. The model has good agreement with experiments. However, the predicted bubble dynamics is dependent on the wall superheat (cavity activation temperature). This single bubble model requires an update of the current nucleation site activation and heat flux partitioning models in time-averaged Eulerian multiphase approaches. In this work, we will introduce this implementation in detail. Further, with help of the MUSIG (MUltiple SIze Group) model and a breakup and coalescence model, the time-averaged Eulerian approach could simulate the bubble size distribution in a heated pipe. With the necessary calibration of the nucleation site density, the comparisons between the calculation results and Bartolomei et al.’s experiments demonstrate the success of the implementation and the accuracy of this approach.
