The main purpose of the reactor physics investigations is the modelling and analysis of the present research/training and power reactors and the Generation IV reactor types. The analyses are performed by widely acknowledged state-of-the-art codes and methods of our own development.
Thermal hydraulics investigates the coupled heat and flow dynamics of liquids. BME's NTI TH Group uses numerical, experimental and theoretical tools in its research.
In the radiochemistry laboratories located in the building of the Training Reactor, samples originating from the environment as well as ones from nuclear power plants can be analyzed. Alpha and gamma spectrometer detectors are available for that purpose. New theoretical and experimental methods and equipment are integral parts of the R&D activities of the Institute.
The radiation protection research is aimed at modelling and quantification of the effect of different types of radiation on humans and on the environment. Research areas include personal dosimetry, medical diagnostic/therapeutic radiation doses and biodosimetry.
