Researchers apply numerical simulations to understand more about a sturdy material and how its basic structure responds to and resists radiation. The outcomes could help guide development of the resilient materials of the future.
PNNL will lead two new projects to advance resilient distribution systems and partner on three additional demonstrations aimed at validating new approaches and technologies to make the aging grid more resilient and secure.
April 26 marks the 31st anniversary of the explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant's Unit 4 reactor. Battelle researchers at PNNL were involved in an international consortium to look at long-term safety and containment of Unit 4. T
