DOE project to evaluate safety of transporting used nuclear fuel

A University of Houston engineer will lead a $3 million, multi-institution effort to develop monitoring techniques to ensure the nuclear materials remain stable during transit under both normal conditions and in case of an accident.

The project, part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy University Programs, will involve researchers from the University of Houston and five other organizations: the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Southern California, the University of Minnesota, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Anatech Corporation.
