22.14 Materials in Nuclear Engineering

Class Info

Introduces the fundamental phenomena of materials science with special attention to radiation and harsh environments. Materials lattices and defects and the consequent understanding of strength of materials, fatigue, cracking, and corrosion. Coulomb collisions of charged particles; their effects on structured materials; damage and defect production, knock-ons, transmutation, cascades and swelling. Materials in fission and fusion applications: cladding, waste, plasma-facing components, blankets.

This class has no prerequisites.

22.14 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. Li.

Lecture occurs 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM on Thursdays in 24-115.

This class counts for a total of 6 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
