INL captures one dramatic second of a fuel rod test in slow motion
Idaho National Laboratory recently released footage of a new experiment at its Transient Reactor Test Facility (TREAT) that simulates what happens to a nuclear fuel pin when it starts to overheat. Go to Twitter for the original post, or cut to the chase and watch a 14-second clip on YouTube.
Nuclear Standards News (NSN) is published six times a year and is dedicated solely to the news of nuclear standards and nuclear regulatory issues. The newsletter covers key events and issues in the nuclear standards field, standards actions, updates on publications, and a calendar of nuclear standards related events. The importance of standards on the international level continues to grow for the nuclear industry, and NSN endeavors to collect this information for you also. Nuclear Standards News provides an excellent way to stay on top of revisions, public review periods, clarification on ANS standards, and additions to industry standards.
NSN is available to all ANS members as a free member benefit. NSN is also a part of our ICONS subscriptions program but can be purchased as an individual subscription, as well. Subscriptions are available in print only, print and online, and online only. Online access requires completion and return of an Online Journal Subscription Agreement.
