Additive nuclear

Last week the Nuclear Engineering International magazine published a contribution about additive manufacturing for nuclear power. Among industrial and research case studies, it is explained that: “There are a number of applications for additive manufacturing in the nuclear sector, including in new-build, for fuel and for in-reactor components. However, work still needs to be done to qualify material and demonstrate that components can meet nuclear codes and standards.” As a PhD holder in Materials Science for nuclear energy, I am surely watching with both eyes wide open and taking note for my own machine learning research.
