  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  SILVER: Improving nuclear decommissioning project performance through reference class forecasting
  Prof N Brookes, Dr G Locatelli
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is the research area?. This project will focus on ‘reference class forecasting’ which is a technique that has been formulated to improve the estimation of time and cost of in large capital projects, like the nuclear decommissioning projects undertaken at Sellafield.
