The Cascades region, reflecting a joint Oregon/Washington organization committee, is pleased to submit a proposal to host the 18th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-18) in Portland, Oregon, USA during the summer of 2019. This proposal is a joint effort of numerous Thermal Hydraulics Division (THD) members with the American Nuclear Society (ANS) Eastern Washington Section as the proposed local section sponsor.
Support and encouragement has been provided to this proposal preparation by several organizations that are actively involved with thermal-hydraulics research and application in the Pacific Northwest. These organizations all have a strong regional presence and are anticipated to be key contributors to the organization and funding of the meeting:
- NuScale Power LLC
- Oregon State University, School of Nuclear Science and Engineering
- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
- TerraPower LLC
- Numerical Applications Division of Zachry Nuclear Engineering
