Abstract

A research team led by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Research Foundation proposes a project to develop advanced high temperature heat exchangers (HTHX) for hydrogen production and electrical energy conversion from advanced nuclear reactor concepts. This project will also support the development of Generation IV reactors. The research team includes researchers from UNLV, General Atomics (GA), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), The University of California, Berkeley UCB) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).

The proposed project will be administered by the University of Nevada Las Vegas Research Foundation (UNLVRF). UNLVRF will provide the overall contract administration and is the funding entity. Activities will include planning, budget and schedule reporting, collecting and organizing technical reports and team reviews. Quarterly progress reports will be delivered to DOE, including schedule and budget status. Review meetings will include a kick-off meeting and periodic meetings of the team. Other project management functions will include subcontracting and contracting as required and management and coordination of deliverables and schedules.
