Nuclear Reactor Physics Basics | MEPhIx on edX


YURI VOLKOV: Hello, everyone. My name is Yury Volkov. I’m a senior lecturer of National
Research Nuclear University MEPhI. I would like to invite you to my
course, Nuclear Reactor Physics Basics. This course is designed
to introduce students to the range of concepts, ideas, and the
models used in nuclear reactor physics. To have the best for the [? first ?]
studying on physic theory of reactors, [? models ?] and of experimental and
computational studies of neutron field. So one of the first in
any educational program in the field of nuclear engineering. The course is based on classical
course, neutron transport theory, which has been taught at National
Research Nuclear University MEPhI during the last 20 years. So the field nuclear engineering deals
with the application of nuclear energy very setting of nuclear power
plants, submarine propulsion systems, medical diagnostic equipment,
such as MRI machines, food production nuclear weapons and
radioactive waste disposal facilities. There should be many opportunities
for highly qualified applicants, particularly those who have
kept abreast of the latest development in nuclear technology. Good grades from the
high rate institution should give a job seeker an
advantage over competition. This course will push you in the path. After studying the course, you should
be able to define basic processes that may occur in the reactor
core, define laws, equations, and limits of applicability of
models describing the neutron field in the reactor. Demonstrate the practice experience in
calculating of the neutron distribution in diffusion approximation. You must demonstrate ability to
analyze the process of slowing down neutrons and various media from
the standpoint of understanding the physics of the process. And evaluate important
reactor parameters including performance and safety. OK, once again, welcome and good luck.
