22.78 Principles of Nuclear Chemical Engineering and Waste Management


Class Info

Introduces scientific and engineering aspects of chemical engineering and waste management applied to reactors and the fuel cycle. Includes chemical behavior in reactors (normal and accident), spent nuclear fuel aging, separation processes in reprocessing, and waste treatment processes. Addresses management of radioactive wastes, including waste forms, classification, fundamental principles, governing equations for radionuclide transport in the environment, performance assessment of geological waste disposal systems, and implications of advanced fuel cycles.

This class has no prerequisites.

22.78 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by C. Forsberg.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
