22.06 Engineering of Nuclear Systems

Class Info

Using the basic principles of reactor physics, thermodynamics, fluid flow and heat transfer, students examine the engineering design of nuclear power plants. Emphasizes light-water reactor technology, thermal limits in nuclear fuels, thermal-hydraulic behavior of the coolant, nuclear safety and dynamic response of nuclear power plants.

This class has 2.005 as a prerequisite.

22.06 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by K. Shirvan.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 24-121.
