Course description and aims

This course aims to study the various chemical analysis operations, which are required for the treatment of nuclear debris and nuclear liquid and solid waste matrix generated from the nuclear severe accidents. In particular, 3 types of experiments consisting of solvent extraction, refining and conversion, and decommissioning will be performed.

Student learning outcomes

The goals are as follows.
1.You can obtain the scientific and technical insights for the chemical analysis of radioisotopes and nuclear fuel material.
2.You can understand the liquid and solid properties of radioisotopes and nuclear fuel material.
3.You can get the suitable knowledge for obtaining the license of Type-I radiation protection supervisor.

Keywords

Nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear waste management, nuclear debris, and severe accident

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

In order to enhance your learning, the practices will be assigned.

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.
