NUCL 61200

Applied Reactor Analysis

Instructor to be determined.

This course deals with reactor physics analysis of existing reactors and critical experiments through the use of digital computers and reactor programs. Also:
  • One-, two-, and three-dimensional solutions of the diffusion and transport equations.
  • Calculation methods for lifetime effects on excess reactivity, power distribution, breeding ratio, and temperature, void, and Doppler coefficients of reactivity.
  • Fuel shuffling and safety calculations for fuel handling and storage.

Concurrent Prerequisite: NUCL 61000.
