NE 573 - Nuclear Reactor Kinetics and Dynamics for Reactor Safety and Licensing

3 Credit Hours
An investigation of nuclear reactor kinetics and dynamics with an emphasis on the important reactor multi-physics phenomena and its impact on reactor safety performance. Will examine the outcomes of research projects and international scientific activities in the area of reactor dynamics. The emphasis of the course is to build the foundation necessary to understand the physics and reactor licensing implications of scenarios where reactor kinetics and dynamics are important for reactor and fuel safety. This includes Control Rod Ejection/Drop or Main Steam Line Break in Light Water Reactors, and Unprotected Transient Overpower or Loss of Forced Cooling in advanced reactors. Specific example multi-physics reactor dynamics problems will be discussed to varying degrees of detail, including SL-1, the EBR-II Shutdown Heat Removal Tests, the HTR-10 and HTTR Pressurized Loss-of-Forced Cooling tests, the Southwest Experimental Fast Reactor Tests, and the Oskarshamn-2 Anticipated Transient Without SCRAM stability events.
Registration Restriction(s): Minimum student level – graduate.
