Discussion and Action Sessions
Discussion Session A
Areas of common interest for EU-US collaboration on DCLL and suggested actions
Chair: Ibarra
Discussion Session B
Multiple effects
a. How to simulate multiple-effects/multiple interactions experiments in laboratory facilities
b. What methods are possible for simulating volumetric heating and temperature, both magnitude and gradient?
Chair: Morley
Discussion Session C
R&D approach strategy for FCI
a. Do we focus on SiC or sandwich-type?
b. Should all effort the next several years be focused only on low-temperature DCLL?
c. When do we start development for high-temperature DCLL?
d. What are the sequence of logical experiments to show that FCI is viable and practical in the fusion nuclear environment?
e. Are present computational methods sufficient to fully analyze FCI and gap flow?
Chair: Boccaccini
