Course description and aims

Concerning Thermalhydraulic 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 easurements done after a severe accident, they will acquire basic skills as a robot engineer.

Student learning outcomes

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.


Thermalhydraulic, Severe accident, Robot control, Ultrasonic Measurement, Velocity Profile Measurement
