Erosion of advanced test reactor fuel elements

Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) Cycle 153B-1 was a 14 day, typical operating cycle for the ATR and did not result in any unusual plant transients.

Deicing system advances by ice accretion modeling

Ice accretion on aircraft can cause major problems including loss of lift and incorrect measurements of flight speed. In the past, these events have in some cases led to aircraft crashing. While numerous anti-icing and de-icing technologies exist, each system currently available is unable to achieve all the properties that aircraft designers desire.
