Course description and aims

To assist the education of design project of nuclear reactors for graduate students. Students deepen the understanding of neutronic analysis and thermal-hydraulic analysis and how to explain the usefulness of the reactor by supporting master`s program students design work of nuclear reactor.

Student learning outcomes

Students have the ability of assisting the following education for graduate students:
(1) Set the purpose to introduce the nuclear reactor by themselves and explain it.
(2) Perform fundamental neurotic analysis to design the reactor.
(3) Perform fundamental thermal-hydraulic analysis to design the reactor.
(4) Explain the usefulness of the designed reactor.

Keywords

Innovative nuclear reactor systems, nuclear reactor design, neurotic analysis, thermal-hydraulic analysis

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Attending of the class " Innovative Nuclear Systems Design Project" and assist the design analysis of master's program students.
