Event description

Description

The Nuclear AMRC and Frazer-Nash Consultancy invite you to bring your technical expertise and innovative thinking to help develop a revolutionary new modular testing rig for nuclear components. The Nuclear AMRC is working with Frazer-Nash to develop a new design concept for a thermal hydraulic rig. A thermal hydraulic rig is a large engineered assembly used to test and study the behaviour of components and sub-assemblies under a variety of operating conditions, including extremes of pressure and temperature, to simulate conditions experienced in nuclear reactor systems.

As part of a project for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Frazer-Nash is developing a specification for a new national thermal hydraulics test rig to underpin the development, safety and efficiency of the next generation of nuclear reactor designs.

The parallel project with the Nuclear AMRC, funded by Innovate UK through the High Value Manufacturing
Catapult, offers an unprecedented opportunity to apply the principles of modularisation to a demanding nuclear
engineering project.

A comprehensive modular rig will play a key role in satisfying national requirements for equipment qualification (EQ) for new nuclear power stations, and will also support operational plant and the decommissioning programme.

The initial project will develop a virtual model of the rig, using the Nuclear AMRC’s VR and digital modelling capabilities to prove the concept of a modular rig.

This two-day workshop will bring together modularisation and nuclear manufacturing experts from industry and academia to discuss the challenges and opportunities of a modular testing rig, and identify key technologies for further development.
