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.

Keywords

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

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
