Deployment of robust diagnostic techniques developed at the University of
Strathclyde has improved the analysis of reactor core data and has
directly supported the Safety Case for continued and extended operation of
the Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor nuclear power stations in the UK. The new
diagnostic techniques have been used on a daily basis since 16/5/2008
(BETA) and 5/3/2009 (IMAPS) in four power stations: 1) providing improved
support and confirmation of the manual assessment of reactor core data by
graphite engineers; 2) informing and advising power station personnel
making strategic decisions on channels requiring inspection during
statutory outages, and 3) providing evidence and increased confidence for
the monitoring stage of station Safety Cases.
The research has shown the ways in which responses to the trauma of the
French Revolution are revealed in contemporary printed images and fiction.
A collection of prints at Waddesdon Manor (National Trust) formed the
basis of activities which have brought a greater awareness of the
ramifications of the Revolution among the broader public, improved the
knowledge-base of heritage industry staff, and supported teaching in
schools. Insights into the prints have been used to create educational
resources which introduce new research methods and themes to primary and
secondary pupils in History, Citizenship and Modern Foreign Languages.
Waddesdon has drawn on the research to realise an important aspect of its
institutional strategy through the development of an online catalogue and
