Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) is one of the most elaborated and worldwide accepted approach to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Well-established both in different branches of industry and science. Although CFD itself is thought to be time- and hardware-consuming technique, the main advantage is its incomparable results resolution. Even the lowest grade RANS will offer much deeper insight into physics than any other non-CFD code can provide. RANS is also the quickest method to obtain valuable response from the analysis, especially when it comes to steady state.

I will discuss the main issues related to the public reception of the Polish Nuclear Energy Program in Poland. An emphasis will be put onto the ways of presenting the nuclear power advantages and problems by experts and the expectations of the public in getting the appropriate (in their meaning) feedback from experts. In other words, I will try to evaluate if the visions of nuclear power by experts and public meet together. Finally, I will brainstorm on how to better communicate nuclear power matter to the society in Poland.
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is an international agreement in force since 1970, under which nuclear-weapon member states have undertaken not to sell this technology to countries that do not have it, and thus non-nuclear-weapon states have undertaken not to develop this technology for purposes other than research.
The treaty is divided into three pillars: non-proliferation, disarmament, and the right to peacefully use nuclear technology, which are interlinked by the 11 articles that make up the treaty.
The current electricity and heat generation in Poland is predominantly based on the use of hard coal and lignite. It contributes to the production of huge amounts of combustion by-products including fly ash.
The main objective of the presented project was a dosimetric analysis of fly ash from coal combustion with or without additive of other co-combustion materials, such as biomass. One of the motivations of the study was to determine possible further use of the fly ash, for example in construction materials fabrication.

Dual Fluid Reactor (DFR) is a novel concept of a reactor which is operating in temperature amounts to 1300oC. DFR need high temperature resistant materials that retain their mechanical properties and withstand corrosion processes under a large neutron flux. Good construction materials for DFR are hard ceramics (such as Silicon Carbide, Zirconium Carbide and Titanium Carbide).
