University of Michigan Key Developments

Hitachi, Ltd. Begins Joint Research with The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The University of Michigan, and The University of California, Berkeley Targeting Resource-Renewable Boiling Water Reactors

Hitachi Ltd. announced that they have begun joint research with three American universities - the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of Michigan (U-M), and the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) - aimed at using Transuranium Elements as fuel, and the development of Resource-renewable Boiling Water Reactors (RBWRs) that enable the effective use of uranium resources. Through this joint research, Hitachi plans to evaluate the performance and safety of RBWRs, which is being developed by Hitachi and Hitachi GE Nuclear Energy Ltd., and to study plans for testing with a view toward practical applications with each university. As one solution to this challenge, Hitachi has undertaken the development of RBWRs based on Boiling Water Reactor technologies, which already have an extensive track record of applications in commercial nuclear reactors. RBWRs could potentially use TRUs separated and refined from spent fuel as fuel along with uranium. Although RBWRs use new core fuel concepts to burn TRUs, they use the same non-core components as current Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs), including safety systems and turbines. As such, RBWRs are unique in that extensive experience accumulated through the application of BWRs can be leveraged to achieve efficient nuclear fission in TRUs. In this next stage of joint research, utilizing the knowledge and insights acquired through the previous stage, and applying the more accurate analysis methods developed by MIT, U-M, and UCB, Hitachi will continue to evaluate the safety and performance of the new reactors, and will study plans for tests with a view toward practical applications.

University of Michigan to Build Test Facility for Autonomous Vehicle Technologies

The University of Michigan recently gave construction approval for a USD 6.5 million test track that will be used to test technologies for autonomous and connected vehicles in real-world conditions. The funding will be provided by the College of Engineering, the Office of Research, the Office of the Provost, and a grant from the Michigan Department of Transportation. The test centre will be called the Mobility Transformation Facility and will be a part of U-M Mobility Transportation Centre launched in May last year. The track will have three-lane miles of roads over 30 acres and will include merging lanes, roundabouts, gravel roads, traffic lights and a stretch of four- lane highway. Peter Sweatman, director of the U-M Mobility Transformation Center.
