KAERI and India’s IGCAR holds joint workshop
- Discussions on development of nuclear materials and high-temperature design

On February 10, Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (President Jong Kyung Kim) and Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) of India’s Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) held the 5th Joint Workshop at IGCAR in Kampakkal, India.

This year’s workshop was attended by six local experts including Yong Hwan Jeong, the head of the Materials Development Department at KAERI, and prominent figures in the field such as Vasudeva Rao, the director of IGCAR. The event featured presentations of more than ten papers on the development of F/M steel for SFR nuclear cladding tubes, welding technology, evaluation of high-temperature characteristics, and non-destructive inspection. The participants also engaged in active discussions on future collaboration.

Established in 1971 under India’s DAE for SFR development, IGCAR successfully built the 40 MW Fast Breeder Test Rector (FBTR) in 1985. The 500 MW Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is also due for completion. The center is widely involved in research on various topics such as the development of SFR cladding materials, structural dynamics, thermal hydraulic power, evaluation of component performance in high-temperature sodium environments, sodium-water reactions, and development of sodium pumps.

The joint workshop between KAERI and IGCAR on high-temperature materials and design has been held since 2008. The two institutes signed a technology cooperation agreement in January 2012.
