Course Title EXPERIMENTAL NUCLEAR REACTOR KINETICS
Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 5.0
Semester First Semester
Course Description 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.
