Roles and current status of reactor physics experiment in research reactors
In this tutorial, I would like to briefly introduce the nuclear reactor theory.
Please keep in mind that the whole nuclear fission power plant is a too complicated system, thus it is not easy to understand the multi-physics in the nuclear power plant. From the overall view of the nuclear power plant, thermal energy via fission in the nuclear reactor core is utilized to finally generate...
Nuclear reactors are mainly categorized as two parts: a commercial power reactor; a test and research reactor for generating electric power and conducting research of radiation utilization, respectively. Of two reactors, main roles of the test and research reactor are to conduct the research and development of nuclear engineering and radiation detection fields with the use of radiation,...
