Past-students and Expert Webinars in Nuclear Engineering
Webinar con Xu Cheng e Ferry Roelofs
Venerdì 18 giugno avranno luogo due webinar del ciclo Past-students and Expert Webinars in Nuclear Engineering organizzato dal Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile e Industriale.
Alle ore 14,00 avrà luogo il webinar "Passive heat removal processes in Nuclear safety system". Relatore sarà Xu Cheng. Partecipa all'evento
Alle ore 16,00 avrà luogo il webinar "Innovative nuclear system research in the Dutch pioneer R&D program". Relatore sarà Ferry Roelofs. Partecipa all'evento
Xu Cheng completed his B.Sc. in Nuclear Engineering at the Xi’an Jiao Tong University in China, Dipl.-Ing. and Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University Braunschweig in Germany. Since then he has been working at the Research Center Karlsruhe (FZK) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) for about 30 years, except in the time period from 2006 to 2008, where he worked at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The main subjects of his education and research activities are nuclear safety, nuclear thermal-hydraulics and advanced nuclear systems.
At present, he is head of the institute of applied thermofluidics (IATF) at KIT and chairing the professorship of innovative reactor systems.
Ferry Roelofs obtained his MSc in mechanical engineering from the Technical University in Eindhoven (Netherlands). Since 1997 he is employed at NRG Petten in the Netherlands. He has a background in thermal hydraulics. With this background, he performed design support and safety analyses on various types of nuclear reactors, ranging from contemporary light water reactors to innovative nuclear reactors. Using his knowledge on innovative reactors he embarked on technical-economic nuclear fuel cycle studies. He has been involved in many European collaborative projects and is well known for his expertise on liquid metal nuclear thermal hydraulics being the editor of the book ‘Thermal Hydraulics Aspects of Liquid Metal Cooled Nuclear Reactors’. He authored more than 70 papers in scientific journals as well as more than 110 in peer-reviewed conference proceedings. Currently, he acts as account manager research and is responsible for international contacts. As such he is a member of the governing board and chair of the scientific committee of the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP). As account manager research he works closely together with the manager of the government funded PIONEER research program in establishing and carrying out the program content.
