Consulting/Prior Work Experience
Prof. John R. White

June 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 Station.

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 decommissioning.

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 capability.

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.
