Development of an interactive nuclear power systems laboratory class

Project: Research project

Project Details


The objective of this course is to teach important reactor safety and power systems concepts, such as critical heat flux, the effect of corrosion on centerline fuel temperature, and reactor behavior during transients, through a series of specially-designed laboratory experiments. Recorded versions of the experiments and computer-based modules will be made available for distance students through the University Engineering Alliance (formerly the Big 12 Engineering Consortium). The benefit of this course will be to provide the only course in nuclear power systems and reactor safety at Kansas State University, and to reinforce the most important concepts through hands-on laboratory experience.
