NUCL 55500

Thermal-Hydraulics Measurement and Instrumentation


Instructor to be determined.

Topics for this course are:
  • Measurement techniques in fluid flow, heat transfer, and multi-phase flow.
  • The principle and practice of measurement of temperature, flow, level, pressure, and void fraction (in two-phase flow systems) as applied to nuclear reactor systems
  • Instrument error and measurement errors, and data acquisition system using PC
  • Hands-on experience in the laboratory with special instruments (LDA, gamma densitometer, and conductivity probe)
