Abstract: Thorium fuel cycle provides several advantages, which make it very attractive; e.g. lower waste production and possibly improved reactor safety. However, there are also some drawbacks if compared with Uranium cycle. The seminar will provide an overview of basic physical features of both Thorium and Uranium fuel cycles and comparison of their performance (criticality, breeding gain) and safety-related (Doppler effect, coolant density effect) parameters, with respect to the fuel recycling, multi-recycling, breeding and burning.

Organisé par le Prof. Teresa.Montaruli@unige.ch et le Prof. Giuseppe.Iacobucci@unige.ch.
