Project summaryThe objective of the Project on end - to summarise the special knowledge in the domain of nuclear engineering and that of means of transportation and to develop on this basis principally new computer-aided calculus and expert program aimed to use in international space missions.
The technical approach of the Project stands for basing upon electric analogs physical processes. Actually, the fact that all variety of physical processes neutron physics, thermal physics, hydraulics, electrical engineering, mass and dimensions characteristics, ionizing fluxes,etc can be uniformly projected into electric analog schemes should allow to use already proved and highly reliable CAD systems model of Design Center. It should sharply cut calculus time, make possible buiding up integrated programming medium for complex optimization, produce easy and flash changeability of programs. The anticipated results the program at work would allow to secure the safety conditions of space nuclear reactors via the possibility to simulate the likely emergencies of power system in general and the procedures of diagnostics and prevention in particular.
Finished Project would result in the computeraided program and instruction manual documentation that goes through a large variety of scientific and engineering efforts, namely:
- control of the ways in which SNPS are being used;
- monitoring safetyconditions of newly made SNPS;
- optimization of the structure and major parameters of SNPS;
- surveying innovated technological solutions over SNPS etc.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
