With this function you can construct your weekly calendar of lessons, which is customized on the basis of the courses that you intend to follow. Warning: the personal schedule does not replace the presentation of the study plan! It's an informal tool that can help you better manage the organization of class attendance before the study plan presentation. After the study plan presentation we recommend you to use the Lecture timetable service in your Online Services.
To create your customized schedule follow these instructions:
Click on the "Enable" link to proceed. You will be asked your surname and first name in order to determine your alphabetic grouping.
To add or remove courses from your personal schedule, use the small icons which are found next to the courses:
addition of the course
removal of the course
selection of the section of the Laboratory of Architecture (Note: the effective area in which the teaching will be carried out will be determined after the presentation of the Study Plans)
The sidebar on the left displays the number of lessons included in schedule. There are also these commands:
View the schedule: allows the viewing of the weekly synoptic schedule
Delete the schedule: cancels the selections made
When you have finished the entry, you can print the calendar you have made.

EXPERIMENTAL NUCLEAR REACTOR KINETICS
Credits (CFU / ECTS)
The course aims to perform theoretical and practical education on nuclear reactor kinetics by means of the TRIGA Mark II nuclear research facility at the Laboratory of Applied Nuclear Energy (LENA) of the University of Pavia. The course consists of a theoretical part (during which basic principles of nuclear reactor physics and kinetics will be overviewed and experimental experiences will be illustrated and analyzed) and a practical part (during which experimental experiences will be performed at LENA reactor facility and the results of the measurements will be discussed).
Basic topics of the course:
1. Evaluation of the reactor effective multiplication factor (keff) in subcritical condition and approximate calibration of reactor control rods;
2. Fine calibration of a reactor control rod by means of reactor Stable Period method;
3. Measurement of the prompt and stationary TRIGA fuel Temperature Coefficient;
4. Measurement of the moderator Void Coefficient;
5. Measurement of reactor power and shut-down transients and delayed neutrons kinetics analysis;
6. Measurement of energy distribution and intensity of reactor neutron fluxes;
Optional arguments of the course (one chosen among the following):
1. Analysis of the kinetics of saturable poisons (in specific 135Xe);
2. Fuel burn-up calculation and measurement of reactor control and shutdown margin;
3. Evaluation of the reactor critical mass loading by means of the Inverse Multiplication Factor method.
