"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.
