Abstract

  • Liquid Salt Technical Working Group Meeting. The first meeting of the Liquid Salt Technical Working Group was held on October 28, 2005 at the Pratt Whitney Rocketdyne facility in Canoga Park, CA. 20 experts from academia, industry, and national laboratories participated to discuss current state of knowledge and research needs for high temperature liquid salt applications.
  • Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative Semi-annual Review. Several participants from the UNLVRF University Consortium gave technical presentations at the NHI Semi-annual Review meeting in Rockville, MD, November 9-10, 2005.
  • Quarterly Collaboration Meeting. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas hosted a UNLVRF HTHX Project quarterly meeting December 5-7, 2005. The purpose of the meeting was to promote collaboration and communication among the UNLV Research Foundation partners. This meeting had added significance in that members of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) were also invited to present the work of the French program. There were 39 attendees from universities, national laboratories, and private industry, including three visitors from the CEA. Collaborators discussed their research program plan and provided an update on their progress. The next meeting will be in March in Albuquerque, NM.
