Project: Ab intio screening of suitable tungsten alloys as first wall material in nuclear fusion reactors
01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-12
Usually a material is extensively modelled in order to understand and improve its properties. This project works the other way round. A screening of a large number of materials will be executed in search of the right characteristics. We will focus on the most promising candidates. A test-case concerns optimal tungsten alloys for first wall materials in fusion reactors.
