ENGR 4504:Nuclear Reactor Simulation

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: ENGR 4501  and Engineering Standing  
The objective of this course is to provide an understanding and knowledge about the operational aspects of a variety of nuclear power plant designs. The course integrates the previous studies in nuclear engineering and reactor power generation into safe design and operation of nuclear power plants. This course covers different reactor designs, normal operations and response to abnormal conditions and potential accident situations. Focus is placed on reactor physics fundamentals, defense in-depth, reactor start-up, normal ramp-up and operations, transient conditions, reactor feedback, reactor control, accident scenarios, and safe shut-down.
