WELCOME TO THE CORTEX PROJECT
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Launched in September 2017, CORTEX aims to develop an innovative core monitoring technique that allows detecting anomalies in nuclear reactors.
Workshops & Courses
A series of workshops and courses will be organised during the CORTEX project to disseminate knowledge and train the scientific community.
All of the project’s resources will be available directly from the website. This includes: newsletters, promotional materials, publications, public deliverables and presentations.
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 1
To develop simulation tools that will be specifically dedicated to the modelling of the stationary fluctuations’ effect in power reactors with a high level of fidelity
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 3
Advanced signal analysis and machine learning techniques will be combined with reactor transfer function modelling capabilities
STRATEGIC OBEJECTIVE 2
The validation of the simulation tools will be performed using reactor experiments specifically designed for noise analysis applications
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 4
The modelling capabilities for the estimation of the reactor transfer function and the advanced signal analysis techniques need to be combined into a set of tools that can be directly used for analysing plant data and performing core diagnostics
CORTEX Coordinator, Christophe Demazières from Chalmers University of Technology, presented an overview of the project at the third DAE-BRNS Symposium on Advances in Reactor Physics (ARP-2017) in Mumbai, India, on 6-9 December 2017. His presentation, entitled Noise-based core monitoring and diagnostics –…
The PHYSOR 2018 conference: Reactor Physics Paving The Way Towards More Efficient Systems, will be held from 22 to 24 April 2017 in Cancun, Mexico. It will focus on both modeling/simulation & experimental aspects of reactor physics and exploration of…
The International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE) is the premier global conference on nuclear reactor technology. This conference is a “must-attend” for anyone who wants to stay technically current and on top of industry trends and developments. It features Industry…
