CAES Codebreaker: Highlighting advanced reactors, workforce training at ISU

Idaho State University Professor Amir Ali will discuss advanced reactors at the CAES Codebreaker webinar on April 7 at 3:30 pm MT. A professor in the Nuclear Engineering Department at ISU since fall 2019, Ali primarily focuses his research on the thermal-hydraulic challenges of advanced reactors, in addition to molten salt and liquid metal-cooled reactors.
In his presentation, Ali will discuss recent efforts to develop efficient and compact heat exchanger technology for advanced reactors and the use of surface wettability to predict Critical Heat Flux, a safety limit for Light Water Reactors for multiple Accident Tolerant Fuel claddings. The presentation will briefly cover other thermal-hydraulics research, including MARVEL and Sockeye validation, and educational efforts to support the workforce training of ISU students.
Prior to joining ISU, Ali served as a research professor at the University of New Mexico, where he was a member of the Advanced Thermal-Hydraulic Laboratory. He also has been a mechanical engineering consultant for fire protection, HVAC, and plumbing systems, is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering and American Nuclear Society, and serves as a reviewer for several engineering journals.
Codebreaker takes place on the first Thursday of the month. It provides a forum for students and researchers to address their work, communicate opportunities and challenges to a receptive audience, and increase dialogue among CAES affiliates.
