NE461 (Version: 2024 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
NE461 ADV COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN IN NE 2024 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This is a mandatory course for Nuclear Engineering majors. The course relies on skills and techniques introduced in NE361 (Computational Design in Nuclear Engineering) and NE355 (Nuclear Reactor Engineering) along with advanced computer codes to design solutions to problems involving advanced reactor concepts, nuclear fuel cycles, nuclear shielding, unstructured mesh Monte Carlo problems, and radiographic imaging. The course includes reinforcement of a variety of computational solutions to the Boltzmann transport equation to include discrete ordinates and Monte Carlo simulations of subcritical and critical assemblies for thermal and fast reactor designs. The course includes a significant design experience where cadets will optimize a complex shielding problem using an unstructured mesh applied to a solid model CAD design. Analysis includes social, political, economic and environmental factors surrounding advanced reactors and shield designs.

NE461 ADV COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN IN NE 2021 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course is an elective course for Nuclear Engineering majors. The course relies on skills and techniques introduced in NE361 (Computational Design in Nuclear Engineering) and NE355 (Nuclear Reactor Engineering) along with advanced computer codes to design solutions to problems involving advanced reactor concepts, nuclear fuel cycles, nuclear shielding, transients and accidents in a coupled coolant system, and radiographic imaging. The course includes reinforcement of a variety of computational solutions to the Boltzmann transport equation to include discrete ordinates and Monte Carlo simulations of subcritical and critical assemblies for thermal and fast reactor designs. The course includes a significant design experience where cadets will optimize a production breeder reactor model within a burner reactor fuel cycle. Analysis includes social, political, economic and environmental factors surrounding advanced reactors and fuel cycles.
