Conference Information

Organized by the SFEN, [French Nuclear Energy Society] Civil Engineering and Nuclear Architecture Technical Section, the purpose of this event is to present the latest innovations in the technological framework of the nuclear civil works. These advancements imply sharing together the latest works in materials, construction process, methods, techniques and design. This requires discussing the latest progress accumulated through modeling, testing, and industrial feedback. This means characterize the behavior of materials and structures linked to these newest technologies in order to improve their assessment, design and appropriate usage.

The objective...

 is to bring together researchers and industrial practitioners from around the world to assess the latest frontiers of the technologies in the field of nuclear civil works.

... and the scope

To fulfill this objective, the second edition of TINCE conference will take place from the 1st to the 4th of September 2014.

After a full day for technical visits, this will consist in 3 days of exchanges of the latest technological innovations in the nuclear civil works framework. These advancements imply sharing together the latest works in materials, construction process, methods, techniques and design.

This requires discussing the latest progress accumulated through modeling, testing, and industrial feedback. This means characterizing the behavior of materials and structures linked to these newest technologies in order to improve their assessment, design and appropriate usage.

The conference will consider 5 principal topics divided into several themes whose keywords are exposed hereafter.

The format

3 days of conference talks and posters, and one day dedicated to technical visits.
