Radiation Effects on Material Properties Seminar
07 Mar 2019 - 08 Mar 2019 • Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Abstract:
This course is directed at engineers, physicists and materials scientists with an interest in component behaviour in nuclear reactor cores. The primary aim is to give a practical understanding of how material properties are affected by irradiation and how this impacts the reactor operation and the useful life of a given component in the reactor. The course will provide reactor design engineers and reactor operations staff an appreciation for materials selection in reactor construction and also provide some of the tools needed to predict material property changes that occur over the life of the reactor. The focus will be on radiation effects on material properties; corrosion and other reactions with the coolant will not be addressed

PWR Reactor Design and Operation Seminar
14 Mar 2019 - 15 Mar 2019 • Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Abstract:
This course provides an overview of all aspects of PWR plant and fuel design including normal operation, accident mitigation, the fuel reload analysis process, operating experience issues, and computer codes used for PWR analyses. The generic characteristics of a PWR are considered followed by an overview of the major plant systems and normal core operation. Details of the three US PWR vendor designs are examined. Major PWR accident mitigation systems are reviewed as well as characteristics of significant accident scenarios analysed. Next, PWR fuel component design and function are described in detail, including material selection. Significant analysis requirements, such as critical heat flux and reactivity control, are discussed as well as the cycle reload analysis process. Lastly, operating experience challenges and current state codes for PWR analysis are reviewed.
