Criticality safety and thermohydraulics

The objective of the Training Module “Criticality Safety and Thermal-Hydraulics” is to provide a transfer of knowledge in the fields of reactor core physics and thermal-hydraulics.

The course is focused on nuclear reactor safety, fundamental phenomena and, advanced computer codes (including coupling) for NPP design and safety analysis.

The expected outcome is to improve the competences and the level of understanding of the participants in relation to the following topics: nuclear fission reactions in light water reactors; nuclear heat generation processes during reactor operation and accidents; factors influencing the thermal performance of nuclear fuel elements;  modeling of processes in reactor core; heat transfer mechanisms in reactor systems; two-phase flow dynamics and heat transfer; limits on safe power removal from reactor cores; and computational methods for reactor design and transient analysis.
