Proceedings from the Nucleonica Training Course, April 2013

April 22nd, 2013

Introduction to Nucleonica: Core Applications and Tools, 18-19 April, FTU-KIT, Karlsruhe, 2013.
This 2-day training course took place at the Center for Advanced Technological and Environmental Training FTU, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), during the 18-19 April, 2013. This was an introductory training course which focused mainly on the Nucleonica core applications and tools. A detailed description of nuclear data with particular reference to the various Nucleonica nuclear databases was given. Core applications were demonstrated through the use of Nucleonica tools such as the Decay Engine, Dosimetry and Shielding and the Gamma Spectrum Generator. A course highlight was the presentation by Yann Donjoux from CERN on an overview of the classification of radioactive packages for transport. A detailed description of the new application – the eShip transport assistant jointly developed by CERN and Nucleonica – was given. A case study on Working with Reference Materials showed how the various Nucleonica modules could be combined to fully characterize reference nuclear materials. Of special interest were burnup and depletion calculations for the characterization of legacy waste through the use of the webKORIGEN fuel cycle analyses module.
In total, 23 persons took part in the course from the IAEA, (Vienna and Seibersdorf, Austria), JRC (ITU, Germany and Ispra, Italy), Fz-Juelich (Germany), Studsvik GmbH (Germany), AGES (Austria), NIS Siempelkamp (Germany), WAK GmbH (Germany), Labor-Spiez (Switzerland), KIT(Germany). Guest speakers included Mr. Y. Donjoux (CERN), V. Romanello (IKET), Drs. Z. Soti and J. Zsigrai from the JRC/ITU in addition to Dr. J. Magill and Mr. R. Dreher from the Nucleonica team.
