Nuclear physics is nothing extra-terrestrial, it is our own existential elementary aspect as I explained before that are captured by engineering. The expertise of rocket science flights into outer space and satellite navigation programmes all began from the earth existential elementary resource.
We are impressively amused with our Satellite and rocket functional activities, we praise, assume and hope to be benefitted from outer space elements and haven’t so fat yet at all. Where we underestimate our earthy elements vast production of all sources.
Nuclei off Atom is earthy an element that has made us to reach to outer space. Simultaneously, the same nuclear power has been basic use in our daily life. We are almost a century long time being used to nuclear as part of our being.
Our experts discovered nuclear, engineered functional plants and reactors, produced energy, adopted the mechanism to transfer into usage; general basic lighting to household utilisation, warfare weaponries to space crafts.
Our nuclear physics experts have improved vastly. Since the failures of last reactors and power station meltdown, better and efficient mechanism has been discovered and implaced. Our British engineering has been always on the top form and now further advanced.
The physics experts and nuclear scientists furthered their engineering knowledge and improved in expertisesm. UK Nuclear physics team has come up with better functional nuclear power plantation design and have built the 3rd Hinckley Power Plant
Hinckley C is a modern power station with significant differences to the older reactors on the site, in both the design of the power station and the issue of radioactive waste. Hinckley C’s reactors are the first to be built post-Fukushima and their design takes into account the lessons learned from the other power plants incidents.
Some of the improvements are listed below:
“The European pressurised reactors (EPRs) are an improvement on the pressurised water reactor and a huge improvement on the old Magnox and AGR systems. THE EPRs will be more efficient in producing energy and so need smaller amount of fuel which will reduce the risk of a major accident.”
“The floor of the reactors is on a base of 6m concrete with channels carved into it. In the event of a meltdown, this should stop the molten core burning through the floor and guard against leakage into environment.”
“Hinckley will have two concrete walls each over 1m thick. These are designed to protect the reactors and even to withstand aircraft strikes!
In a direct response to the events at Fukushima and the importance of the cooling systems to safety, there will be two extra back-up generators in widely spaced, waterproof buildings.The developments will also improve the management of nuclear waste.”
Hinckley C seems well planned and well protected designed with improvement and efficiency. It will produce way less waste. It is funded by Chinese investors.
Hinckley C is an improvement and it proves with further education and expertsm physics utilisation can be further improved and also better and efficient ways of waste disposal mechanism can be worked out to reduce the radioactive waste.
This engineering programme will help minimise the radioactivity, also this project will help the future generations dealing with it and it will input as education for the future generations.
The plan, design and the functioning of Hinckley C is well improved compared to other reactors. The failure factors of other reactors has been looked into and lesson taken from them.
More importantly as well better safety measures implemented learning from Fukushima reasoning, here it’s appreciable that it would produce less waste.
One step at a time, from Hinckley C, on its functionality and efficiency, our experts can step on to further improvement gradually can discover to further reduce the waste.
Now, for time being a group of experts need to focus on mastering specialism knowledge to discover how to handle ex waste to reduce the radioactive risks or to find ways of recycle efficiently and effectively.
