Several irradiation experiments have confirmed the positive effect of adding Si to the matrix of an U(Mo) dispersion fuel plate on its in-pile irradiation behavior. E-FUTURE, the first experiment of the LEONIDAS program, was performed to select an optimum Si concentration and fuel plate heat treatment parameters for further qualification. It consisted of the irradiation of 4 distinct (regarding Si content and heat treatments), full size flat fuel plates in the BR2 reactor under bounding conditions (470 W/cm2 peak BOL power, approximately 70% peak burn-up). After the irradiation, the E-FUTURE plates were examined non-destructively and found to have pillowed in the highest burn-up positions. The destructive post-irradiation examination confirmed that the fuel evolves in a stable way up to a burn-up of 60%235U. Even in the deformed area (pillow) the U(Mo) fuel itself shows stable behavior and remaining matrix material was present. From the calculation of the volume fractions, the positive effect of a higher Si amount added to the matrix and the higher annealing temperature can be derived.

The paper presents results of performance evaluation of the R6R018 fuel plate using PLATE code. R6R018 is a U-7Mo dispersion type mini-plate with Al-3.5Si matrix irradiated in the RERTR-9B experiment. The design of this plate is prototypical of the planned LEONIDAS irradiation test. Therefore, a detailed performance analysis of this plate is important to confirm acceptable behavior in pile, and to provide baseline and justification for further analysis and testing. Specific results presented in the paper include fuel temperature history, growth of the interaction layer between the U-Mo and the matrix, swelling, growth of the corrosion layer, and degradation of thermal conductivity. The methodology of the analysis will be discussed including the newly developed capability to account for the formation of the interaction layer during fuel fabrication.

Automated modal parameter identification of civil engineering structures has been analyzed in a previous paper. An original algorithm, named LEONIDA, working in frequency domain, has been presented and a number of test cases have been discussed in order to point out advantages and drawbacks. It has been demonstrated that LEONIDA represents a promising and reliable tool, in particular for modal testing. Conversely, integration of such a procedure into a fully automated structural health monitoring (SHM) system has shown that it can be used as modal information engine, but length of record durations, amount of computational burden and response time lead to recognize that serious drawbacks and limitations exist for a class of applications, such as continuous monitoring of structures in seismically prone areas. In fact, a fast assessment of relevant structure health conditions in the early post-earthquake phase is becoming of interest in different European areas. In such a context, the statistical treatment of measured dynamic properties could be certainly useful, but it requires the collection of an extensive amount of local and global data in a short time. As a consequence, availability of reliable, robust and fairly fast data processing procedures for modal tracking is fundamental whenever really effective and useful SHM systems are adopted to support civil protection activities during seismic sequences. This applies mainly to strategic structures, whose health conditions must be rapidly assessed after any seismic event, in order to securely manage rescue operations. In the present paper, the main issues related to a fast, robust and reliable modal tracking for emergency management are outlined. Then, an automated modal tracking strategy for SHM applications in earthquake prone regions is described. It is based on the knowledge of the experimental mode shapes and a revised concept of spatial filtering. Results of sample applications of the proposed procedure refer

The ancient city of Diocaesarea (Uzuncaburç), located 30 km north Silifke in Mersin, was a temple centre subjected to Olba in the Hellenistic period. It was declared as free city by Tiberius in the Early Imperial period and it flourished until the 5th century AD. During this period, a Thykhaion to the west of the city was built in the 1st century AD by Obrimos and his son Oppius from his wife Kyria, daughter of Leonidas. A theater was also erected in the co-reign of Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus and the city gate in the west of Diocaesarea was repaired under Arcadius and Honorius (396-408 AD). It was financed by the dux ad comes of Isauria, Leontios. In July 2011, archaeogeophysical measurements were made on the columns of the town of Zeus Olbios and on the peripteral Street of the city by magnetic methods. The purpose of these investigations is to determine the presence of architectural remains under the ground at the points specified. G-858 Cesium Gradiometer (G-858 Cesium Gradiometer) was used for magnetic measurement. These measurements were made on 38 pitches of 20 m length in Zeus Olbios temple on 13 creeks of 160 m length on the city's columned street. obtained sub-sensor, top sensor and gradient magnetic maps are created. Linear, angular locations with high susceptibilty were identified on magnetic maps. Keywords: Magnetic, Diokaisareia (Uzuncahurç), Archaeogeophysics, Archaeology, Cesium Gradiometer
