COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
NE355 NUCLEAR REACTOR ENGINEERING 2019 2 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course focuses on nuclear reactor systems, the release of nuclear energy in the reactor core, and its removal as heat for producing electric power. Specific topics emphasize reactor kinetics, heterogeneous reactors, control rods and shim, reactor poisons, heat transfer, and alternative energy systems. The fundamentals of transport theory and the solution to the transport equation using Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNPX) transport code are introduced. The laboratory component includes a student-designed lab.
LESSONS: 30 @ 75 min (2.000 Att/wk) LABS: 8 @ 120 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
One paper and a student-designed lab project.
