Goals

To learn how to use wisely the neutron diffusion approximation and how to modelize as simply as possible a nuclear reactor core for quick and easy neutronic calculations.
To prepare for more powerful tools like deterministic or stochastic transport codes.

Content

Diffusion approximation
Slowing-down of neutrons
Criticality : condition and flux calculation
Refinements : heterogeneous, multigroup

In parallel with this lecture, the program "Neutronique en Clips" (see specific page in same semester) allows to acquire this fundamental knowledge by application on a practical case (conference article).



Prerequisites

Basic tools in mathematics and notions in nuclear physics
Introduction to nuclear reactor physics

Tests

exam (2h) with a problem in 2 or 3 parts



Examen : 100%
