UI faculty member teams with university

University of Idaho Chemical Engineering Professor Indrajit Charit received $799,950 over three years through the Nuclear Energy University Program, in partnership with University of Nevada – Reno, to make spent nuclear fuel short-term storage safer by better understanding how welds on stainless steel fuel canisters respond to compressive stress, surface texture modification and corrosion. Charit also is a collaborator on a project led by Boise State’s Brian Jaques that won an award through the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission last year.
