Book Description :
This Multimedia on Nuclear Reactor Physics has been developed in order to improve the quality in nuclear engineering education and training programs. The multimedia has been distributed to more than 119 countries and, in some institutions, this course is called Fundamentals of Nuclear Reactor Operation. This multimedia can be used in Nuclear Reactor Physics course for education and training for engineers in Master of Nuclear Engineering at universities; for engineers, physicists, chemistries, informatics, etc. at Nuclear Power Plants (modular course 2 weeks) and for operators of Nuclear Power Plants. Nowadays, this multimedia has about 800 slides and the text is in Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. The version in Arabic is coming soon. The figures, animations, tables and equations are the same in the five languages; the only difference is the text language. The multimedia has the following content: Introduction to the Nuclear Energy: Nuclear reactor operation principle, Historical introduction and current situation of the fission nuclear energy. (159 slides) Neutron interaction: Types of reactions. Cross sections according to the energy, Neutron scattering, Moderation power and reason, Westcott factors. (84 slides) Fission process in a nuclear reactor: Fission reaction, Conversion and reproduction, Fission energy, Nuclear reactor power, Fuel consumption, Fission products. (65 slides) Neutron multiplication in a nuclear reactor: The multiplication factor, The four and six factors formula, Critical mass. (52 slides) Neutron balance in a material medium: Neutron transport theory, Transport equation solutions, Neutron diffusion theory, Fick's law, Validity conditions, Physical interpretation, Limit Conditions. (45 slides) Criticality in multiplier medium: Multiplication coefficient, Criticality of the bare homogeneous reactor, Criticality calculation by using of the multigroup model, Criticality determination with reflector. (29 slides) Reactor kinetics: Delayed and non-delayed neutrons, Reactivity equation for six delayed neutron groups, Small reactivities, Flux evolution. (95 slides) Control rod effect: Control-rod Worth, Differential and integral value. (64 slides) Soluble poisons: Reactivity effect calculation. (13 slides) Burnable poisons: Location, Reactivity effect calculation. (18 slides) Reactivity temperature effects: Feedback coefficients, Stability, Fuel temperature coefficient, Moderator temperature coefficient. (51 slides) Fission products poisoning: Dead Time, Xenon space oscillations, Samarium effects. (53 slides) Neutron Sources: Intrinsic and external sources, Sub critical multiplication, Bending curves. (58 slides). At the last page of the book, there is the link to download the digital version of the multimedia. This digital version has a programme inside in order to develop a self-evaluation. There are 2 tests, one with 14 questions and the other with15. One from chapter 1 to 5, a second one from chapter 6 to 13. Automatically, this programme gives your marks.
