Concerning fluid measurements using ultrasonic waves, after learning measurement principles and techniques, students will learn measurement skills through experiments.
Students will learn the basics of robot control, and through transport experiments for robots designed for reactor measurements done after a severe accident, they will acquire basic skills as a robot engineer.
(Each class is held for up to 4 consecutive hours)
[Objectives] We will learn about ultrasound measurement technology, one measurement technique useful for when a severe accident occurs at a nuclear facility. Students will also learn about robot transport technology for transporting ultrasonic sensors, through experiments.
[Topics] 1) The basics of ultrasound measurement technology 2) Applications for ultrasound measurement technology 3) Introduction to severe accident engineering 4) Introduction to nuclear plant robots 5) Robot arm control 6) Vehicle integration and remote control of arm 7) Comprehensive experiments on arm, vehicle, and ultrasound measurements
