The 5th year class
|Research||Study on estimation of radiation dose in criticality accident of fuel debris|
|My name is Kodai Fukuda. I entered U-ATOM because of my desire to help people not only in Japan but throughout the world by participating in the decommissioning work of nuclear power plants. Through the U-ATOM program, I hope to visit different places, meet many new people, and acquire valuable experiences. In addition to knowledge, I want to gain a broad cultivation and ability to communicate so that I can fully utilize this knowledge.|
|Name||Nur Husna Md Hanipah|
|Research||Waste Categorization System Development for Debris from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station by Non-Destructive Assay Technology|
I am Nur Husna Md Hanipah, a 1st year Master student of Nuclear Engineering. I graduated from Bachelor Science in Physics with Electronics in University of Sabah in Malaysia and obtained my first Master in Safety Radiation and Nuclear in the National University of Malaysia in 2014. By joining the Academy for Global Nuclear Safety and Security Agent (U-ATOM) Programme, it would be my best platform to discover my potential and become a leader who could serve for the community well in the future. Currently, I belong to Sagara Laboratory and am focusing on waste categorization system development for debris from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station by non-destructive assay technology.
|Research||Study on Moving Particle Semi-implicit Method for Criticality Safety on Fuel Debris Removal|
During my time as an undergraduate, I belonged to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, where I studied the relationship between coolant flow and corrosion in nuclear reactors using fluidic numerical analysis. I entered Graduate School in Nuclear Engineering because I wanted to learn about nuclear power more systematically. Currently, I am studying nuclear criticality safety for decommissioning operations. Five years have passed since the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. Decommissioning is steadily progressing, but there are still many issues that remain. I hope to become someone who is capable of handling Fukushima decommissioning work, which is believed to take decades. In addition to study, I am also gaining a broad knowledge and cultivation through the various curricula provided U-ATOM.
