This paper presents a review on the research activities conducted at AAMU (Alabama A&M University) in the last five years. The researchers in College of Engineering, Technology and Physical Sciences of AAMU have been receiving financial support from the U.S. Department of Energy under Massie Chair Excellence Program in Nuclear Engineering from 2008. The main objectives of this project were to improve the capability of understanding the static, dynamic behavior of pebbles and gas flows/heat transfer in a pebble bed reactor (PBR), which is the key to the design, optimization and safe operation of the reactors.
