STRUCTURAL MECHANICS IN REACTOR TECHNOLOGY

|September 17||Presentations in general sessions now available|
"Challenges Facing Nuclear Renaissance"
The international conferences on Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology (SMiRT) have traditionally provided innovative and practical mechanics-based solutions to the planning, design, construction, operation, and regulation of NPPs and related facilities. SMiRT 20 will continue this tradition, bringing together experts and practitioners from around the world to share their knowledge of technology that is most relevant at this time in the nuclear energy industry for both current operations and future development like Generation IV and ITER design. As the workforce in the nuclear industry matures, it is important for us to encourage young engineers and scientists. SMiRT 20 will provide an excellent opportunity for this dialog.
The International Association of Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology (IASMiRT) along with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Helsinki University of Technology (TKK) with the support of the Finnish nuclear community invite you to Espoo to contribute to and participate in the 20th SMiRT Conference and the 20 years anniversary celebration of the IASMiRT.
