Professors Receive US Nuclear Regulatory Commission Funding

Tom Filburn and Cy Yavuzturk recently received $121,560 of funding from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  The two Mechanical Engineering department faculty will develop a sub-scale, operating, electrically powered see-through reactor and several computer models of a pressurized water nuclear reactor.  These models will be used to train students in the design and operation of nuclear power plants. The grant runs through August 2012 and will fund one graduate and one undergraduate student worker.  The grant will allow CETA to strengthen its course offerings in the nuclear power area.
