Our expert in geostatistics applied to nuclear decommissioning gives a lecture at ELINDER course
Our expert in geostatistics applied to Nuclear Decommissioning is giving a talk at the ELINDER Specific Course in Metrology for Radioactive Waste Characterisation and Clearance that will take place at the JRC Site in Ispra (Italy) on16-20 September 2019.
Decommissioning activities require expertise in various radiological measurement techniques: for the characterization of the installations, for the characterization of waste and for the clearance of materials and waste. Experts from the Joint Research Centre as well as external experts will explain the current practices and the developments in this field.
In this framework, Yvon Desnoyers will specifically talk about the radiological characterization of the environment.
Monday 16 Sept.
– Session 1: Introduction – Basic metrology Rehearsal radiation measurement principles
– Session 2: Measurement methods for plant and waste characterization, and for clearance
Tuesday 17 – Thursday 19 Sept.
– Session 3: Introduction to 4 measurement techniques and practical exercises: Gamma-ray spectrometry, Passive Neutron counting, Gamma measurement for clearance, Destructive Analysis measurements for plant and waste characterization
Friday 20 Sept.
– Session 4: Validation of methods, inter-comparisons, standards, international networks
– Final session
