FZK / Institut fuer Reaktorsicherheit (IRS) since 2000.
Head of Section Neutron
Physics and Reactor Dynamics (NR) of IRS February 2003 untill
retirement March, 2007.
Main areas of interest:
nuclear reactor physics, reactor code development and
validation, nuclear data libraries, reactor design, reactor
dynamics, spallation target physics., multi-physics codes.
Experience in the areas:
physics, tight light water reactor physics and design, physics of
high performance light water reactor with coolant at
super-critical thermodynamic conditions, spent LWR-fuel analysis,
long term waste treatment, dynamics of sub-critical systems,
physics and design of accelerator driven sub-critical systems
(ADS). Coupling of nuclear physics and thermodynamic reactor
He is one of the key developers of the current UNIX
workstation version of the modular code system for reactor physics
calculations KAPROS, created at FZK in the past 40 years.
The KAPROS subsystem KARBUS is well suited for nuclear fuel
burnup analysis for a wide variety of reactor configurations.
The full modular concept also enabled
a number of multi physics couplings with
international stand-alone codes, e.g. for
coupling of neutron physics, neutron kinetics and thermo hydraulic
(more about KAPROS).
He participated in the 4. EC framework
program IABAT. He was involved in the 5. EC
framework programs MUSE, HPLWR, PDS-XADS and MEGAPIE-TEST,
as well as in the bilateral projects MEGAPIE and TRADE.
He is involved in the 6. EC framework program
Integrated Project EUROTRANS domains DESIGN, ECATS and
Since his first visits to Russia
in 1996, he was actively supporting

the initial incentives of the
International Scientific Technology Center ISTC in Moscow
The password protected ISTC information area,
established for fast efficient exchange of actual ISTC project data,
is still available on this website.
