NE452 (Version: 2020 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
NE452 INSTRUMENTATION AND SHIELDING 2020 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course focuses on nuclear instrumentation and radiation detectors, and on biological and material radiation protection through shielding. Specific topics include a study of radiation, and radiation detection devices to include: ionization chambers, proportional counters, Geiger-Mueller counters, scintillation detectors, semiconductor diode detectors, germanium and sodium iodide gamma-ray detectors, and neutron detectors. Radiation shielding, as a force protection measure, includes the design, analysis, and confirmation of radiation shields using point kernel and removal diffusion methods. Emphasis is placed on practical application of the radiation detection instruments and the associated acquisition software.
LESSONS: 30 @ 75 min (2.000 Att/wk) LABS: 8 @ 120 min

NE452 INSTRUMENTATION AND SHIELDING 2005 2 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course focuses on nuclear instrumentation and radiation detectors, and on biological and material radiation protection through shielding. Specific topics include a study of radiation, and radiation detection devices to include: ionization chambers, proportional counters, Geiger-Mueller counters, scintillation detectors, semiconductor diode detectors, germanium and sodium iodide gamma-ray detectors, and neutron detectors. Radiation shielding, as a force protection measure, includes the design, analysis, and confirmation of radiation shields using point kernel, removal diffusion, and Monte Carlo computational methods which includes a design project using Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) code. Emphasis is placed on practical application of the radiation detection instruments and the associated acquisition software.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 8 @ 120 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Two design projects.
