|Areas of Research Expertise||
* Research in multiphase flow
* Analytically and/or experimentally researches physical processes for accidents that go beyond the design base (degraded-core or core-melt accidents)
* Hydrogen generation, molten fuel (coolant interactions, debris-bed formation and heat transfer, and molten core), concrete interactions, and containment response
* Risk assessment methodology
* Deterministic analyses
* Light water reactor operation research aids Midwestern utilities in simulator modeling, operator training and accident response, and nuclear systems analysis
* Fusion reactor research identifies and analyzes generic thermal hydraulic phenomena to improve current design studies including liquid-metal heat transfer and liquid-metal/water-safety concerns

Humrickhouse PW, Sharpe JP, Corradini ML, Physical Review E, 81 (1): article #011303 Jan 2010. Three recently proposed hyperelastic models for granular materials are compared with experiment data.
Corradini ML. Nuclear Technology 167(1): 145-156 July 2009. There has been an ongoing search for more efficient power plant designs over the last few decades.
Mignot GP, Anderson MH, Corradini ML, Nuclear Engineering and Design 239 (5): 949-955 May 2009. his paper describes the results of an experiment to measure the critical mass flux for numerous stagnation thermodynamic conditions, geometry and outlet tube roughness.
Bilbao YL, Rosa M, Corradini ML, Nuclear Engineering and Design 236 (19-21): 2245-2263 Oct 2006. The present work quantifies the partition of the heat losses upward and downward in this multi-layered configuration, considering the influence of the viscosity and the solid fraction in the pool, from test data obtained from intermediate scale experiments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. These experimental results show heat transfer behavior for multi-layered pools for a range of viscosities and solid fractions.
