Analysis methods and techniques in nuclear energy

"The sufficient criterion for acceptance in nuclear energy is confidence. Confidence in technology, confidence in the human beings, which use this technology, confidence in authorities and supervisory organisations and confidence in politics to make the right decisions."

Dr. Gert Maichel
President of the German Atomic Forum
to the annual conference for nuclear technology 2003




fluid and strength calculations

The KAE GmbH would like to introduce you sincerely to the seminar analysis methods and techniques in nuclear energy. Because of the tremendous meaning of computational proofs on restart and operation authorisation of nuclear power plants we would like to give you in this technically orientated presentation a review of the different methods and possibilities in computational proofs. The main focus is thereby the fluid and structural-dynamic computation of pipelines as well as other safety-relevant parts and components. Beside shock pressures and vibrations in the pipeline, attachment and component loads as well as fatigue analysis are treated under the requirements of the guidelines KTA, ASME and RE-L. In spite of the strong theoretical background the seminar is practical and primarily aimed at power plant and operating engineers.
