Nuclear Engineering and Design is the International Journal devoted to all aspects of Nuclear Fission Energy. The journal is affiliated with the European Nuclear Society (ENS) and with the International Association for Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology, e.v. (IASMiRT).

Nuclear Engineering and Design covers the wide range of disciplines involved in the engineering, design, safety, and construction of nuclear fission reactors. We welcome papers both on applied and innovative aspects and developments in nuclear science and technology.

Fundamentals of Reactor Design include:

Thermal-Hydraulics (including or not including Core Physics)

Safety Analysis, Risk Assessment (PSA)

Structural and Mechanical Engineering

Radioprotection

Neutron Physics

Materials Science

Fuel Behavior and Design

Structural Plant Design including seismic analysis

Engineering of Reactor Components

Experiments



Aspects beyond fundamentals of Reactor Design covered:

Accident Analysis and Mitigation Measures

Balance of Plant optimization

Reactor Control Systems

Licensing Issues

Safeguard Engineering

Economy of Plants

Fuel cycle including Reprocessing / Waste Disposal

Applications of Nuclear Energy: "nuclear-space", nuclear-transportation (ships and not only) . H2 production, desalination (or clean water from sea water),etc.

Maintenance

Decommissioning



Papers on new reactor ideas and developments such as SMR, and microreactors, then Generation IV reactors (e.g. inherently safe modular HTRs), High Performance LWRs/HWRs, Molten Salt reactors and LMFBs/GFR will be considered; Actinide Burners, Accelerator Driven Systems, and other special designs of power and research reactors and their applications are also encouraged.
