High fidelity computer simulation to predict damage in advanced ceramic composites for nuclear energy

Composite materials, made from ceramic fibres within a ceramic matrix, can have excellent strength and tolerance to damage at very high temperatures. They have been chosen to protect the fuel in some future designs for advanced nuclear

Bias in comparing nuclear and renewable energy scenarios

For decades scholars have debated energy policy choices, especially nuclear versus renewable energy. In a paper published in 2015 in the journal Conservation Biology, Brook and Bradshaw compared impacts and costs of future energy technology scenarios for
