Wisconsin Institute of Nuclear Systems - Goals

Goals
The functions of the Center can be divided into three categories:
  1. Research
  2. Education
  3. Public Service

Research

The Institute research activities focus on nuclear systems engineering issues; e.g., health physics, multiphase flow, materials science, neutronics and reactor physics, radiation science. Research programs provide opportunities for cooperation with a number of industrial companies within the state of Wisconsin and nationally as well as state and federal government agencies. It is these groups that provide the financial support for the Institute research activities. Examples of industrial companies and government agencies that currently have provided grants to faculty and research staff and who would potentially be interested in interaction with the Institute include:
  • Argonne National Laboratory
  • Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Electric Power Research Institute
  • Department of Energy
  • Idaho National Engineering Lab
  • Hanford Site - Office of River Protection
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  • National Science Foundation
  • Northern States Power Company
  • Nuclear Management Company
  • Sandia National Laboratories
  • Savannah River Laboratory
  • Westinghouse Electric Corp.
  • Wisconsin Energy Corp.
  • Wisconsin Public Service Corp.
The Institute also supports international organizations in regard to nuclear systems engineering; i.e., Atomic Energy of Canada, European Joint Research Center-ISPRA, Karlsruhe Nuclear Research Center, Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute, Taiwan Institute for Nuclear Energy Research and United Kingdom Atomic Energy Agency.
