Fuel Engineering Coat of Arms
The coat of arms is protected by AECL Proprietary and Final Preliminary Draft. The shield is divided into quadrants by red tape. Superimposed on it is a bastard bundle. The upper left quadrant represents the engineering terms of fuel behaviour. The upper right quadrant represents terms developed in manufacture of fuel. The lower left quadrant represents terms of heat transfer and corrosion. The lower right quadrant represents the mystical chemical symbols of the coolant chemistry. Above the shield is the Omnipresent bull moose of our founder Dr. Ara J. Mooradian. Superimposed is a bird cage representing a fuel carriage. Above which is the loop rampant and unstable. Underneath the shield is the banner burnt at both ends by Burnup and Burnout. Upon which the motto is inscribed ‘Caveat Emptor’ - ‘Let the buyer beware’ or ‘If it fails do not blame us!’ Below which rests ‘The never completed final report’.
