Course description and aims

To assist the education of laboratory experiment related to basic nuclear engineering for graduate students. The experiment consists of thermal‐hydraulics experiment and radiation‐measurement. To assist the preparation, improvement and enforcement of the experimental education including lectures.

Student learning outcomes

Students have the ability of assisting the following experimental education for graduate students:
(1) Thermal‐hydraulics experiment: Coolant behavior in reactor core, heat transfer on fuel element, boiling two-phase flow and critical heat flux
(2) Radiation‐measurement: Measurements of alpha and gamma rays from radioactive nuclei, and interaction with material

Keywords

Coolant, Thermal-hydraulics, Heat transfer, Boiling two-phase flow, Alpha ray, Gamma ray, Semiconductor detector, scintillation counter

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

To assist the preparation, improvement and enforcement of the experimental education
