Prof. John R. White
2001 to July 2001 - Consultant to the Reactor Physics Group at Duke
Engineering and Services, Inc., Marlborough, MA. Support of project
focused on the analysis of self-powered neutron detectors in Seabrook
March 1999 to April 1999 - Consultant to the Radiological Engineering
Group at Duke Engineering and Services (formerly Yankee Atomic),
Bolton, MA. Review of calculations with the MCNP code to predict
doses inside and outside containment under various scenarios during
the April 1999 refueling outage at Seabrook Station.
July 1997 to December 1998 - Consultant to the Reactor Physics Group
at Duke Engineering and Services (formerly Yankee Atomic), Bolton,
MA. Support of activation analysis studies for decommissioning the
Connecticut Yankee and Maine Yankee nuclear power stations using
the DORT and ACTIV codes.
Nov. 1996 to May 1997 - Consultant to the Environmental Engineering
Department (EED) at Yankee Atomic Electric Company, Bolton, Ma..
Performed benchmark calculations involving gamma ray skyshine using
the MCNP code. Verified capability and procedures for performing
MCNP-MCNP coupling computations. These methods supported radiation
safety analyses performed at Yankee Atomic.
June 1994 to June 1995 - Consultant to the Nuclear Data Section
of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria. Performed
benchmark calculations using the recently developed ACTIV code for
fully coupled space-energy activation analysis.
Participated in Consultant's Meeting at IAEA Headquarters in Vienna
(Dec. 1994) to evaluate the current status of nuclear data and codes
for the calculation of radioisotope inventories for fission reactor
July 1991 to Dec. 1993 - Consultant to Reactor Physics Group at
Yankee Atomic Electric Co., Bolton, MA. Primary role was the development
and implementation of a complete discrete ordinates particle transport
theory computational capability at Yankee Atomic. Also conducted
training for several Yankee staff in general transport theory methods.
Provided consulting services on several applications of the new
Nov. 1990 to Dec.1990 - Consultant to Reactor Physics Group at Yankee
Atomic Electric Co., Bolton, MA. Performed preliminary modeling
and analysis to quantify the fast fluence at the inner surface of
the pressure vessel at Yankee Rowe.
June 1990 to Aug. 1990 - Consultant to Engineering Physics and Mathematics
Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Performed conversion,
upgrade, and benchmarking of complete VENTURE/DEPTH-CHARGE system
from IBM mainframe to VAX mainframe. Also provided support for VENTURE
applications at ORNL.
June 1988 to Aug. 1988 - Consultant to the Nuclear Engineering Section
of the Computer Science Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory,
Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Performed analyses with the SCALE system in
support of ORNL's effort to develop and benchmark tools for shipping
cask design and analysis.
Jan. 1977 to Sept. 1982 - Research staff member in the Nuclear Engineering
Section of the Computer Science Division at the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Responsible for the development
and application of large-scale state-of-the-art computer code systems
for the solution of a variety of neutronic analysis problems. Specific
research areas included fuel-cycle depletion analysis, the development
and application of time-dependent perturbation theory, and the application
of adjoint sensitivity theory and uncertainty analysis methods to
the study of design sensitivities and uncertainties in large fast
reactor systems. Familiar with several large code systems such as
VENTURE/DEPTH-CHARGE, CITATION, FORSS, AMPX, DOT, ANISN, KENO, etc..
The list of publications during this period gives a more detailed
breakdown of these topics.
June 1976 to Aug. 1976 - Assistant to the Reactor Engineering Supervisor
at Maine Yankee Atomic Power Plant in Wiscasset, Maine. Major involvement
was in a project to predict transient axial power distributions
in large PWRs.
May 1972 to May 1974 - Served in the United States Air Force as
an electronics technician specializing in the maintenance of ground
to air communication systems.
