Professor Wade Marcum’s Research Group focuses on the fundamental understanding of a variety of thermal hydraulic phenomenological areas centered on fluid-structure interactions, natural circulation, reactor safety, flow induced vibration, and advanced reactor design. Members within the group seek to further understand these phenomena from both an experimental and theoretical perspective. Marcum’s group is a multidisciplinary research collective of students and staff who come from within the School of Nuclear Science and Engineering, and Materials Science program. The group actively interacts with federal, national laboratory, industry, and academic partners to yield high impact research.
