NUCL 51200

Computers in Reactor Analysis

Instructor: To be determined

    Nuclear 51200 deals with the application of computational methods in reactor systems analysis and theory behind modern numerical methods (e.g. SOR, Conugate Gradient, etc.) for solving large, sparse systems on linear equations that result from the discretization of elliptical and parabolic partial differential equations. Applications include the multi group, multi-dimensional neutron transport equation and two-phase flow fluid dynamics. Extensive use of MATLAB, FORTRAN, and UNIX(tm). No written exams, and the majority of problem sets are performed as group projects. Knowledge of FORTRAN required.
