Goals

In this course, each chapter is followed by a group project. With some technical help and communication advice from the teacher, each group has to understand (fully or half of) a scientific article (from a journal or a conference) dealing with some design studies or issues of an existing or paper nuclear reactor.
Since articles which complete each other are chosen, all different aspects about this (often innovative) nuclear reactor type are thus finally studied by the entire class and a consistent "student conference" can be given on the subject at the end by all groups, as an evaluation.

Content

Course is decomposed into 4 big parts (in september-october)
Chapter 1 : design principles, attempt of classification
Chapter 2 : water-moderated reactors (PWR, CANDU, ...)
Chapter 3 : graphite-moderated reactors (RBMK, GTR, HTR, ...)
Chapter 4 : fast systems (GFR, SFR) and even more exotic/innovative ones

You can find on this web page :
https://sites.google.com/site/reacteurenkit
all the student works performed and presented in conference the previous years.



Prerequisites

Solid bases in neutronics, thermalhydraulics and materials
Notions on nuclear reactor operation

Tests

Project (prepared in class along with lectures), with presentations (in 2 public sessions of 2h each), abstracts and Questions & Answers (end of october).



Une note par groupe pour la présentation (incluant le travail de préparation, le résumé, la qualité des réponses aux questions).

Additional Information

This course brings 1.5 ECTS to students in UE Simulations (DD - S9)
