Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology (SMiRT) conferences have a strong history of contributions to the state of practice in the nuclear industry worldwide. The joint US-Canada conference is returning to the American continent after six years to a city that has established itself as the energy capital of the United States with strong leadership from the nuclear industry.
The industry is seeking innovation in four broad areas of interest:
In addition, the US government's decision to reopen the Yucca Mountain repository offers an extraordinary opportunity to the world community to innovate and collaborate.
SMiRT 25 will be a valuable forum for germinating, communicating, and advancing, the scientific and technological developments to secure the future of nuclear energy. Leaders, managers, and engineers from around the world will come together to continue the SMiRT tradition of driving innovation for safe, reliable, and efficient nuclear energy. We invite you to join us in Charlotte in 2019.
