Transcript of UI-NE450: Introduction to the course 0
PRINCIPLES OF NUCLEAR ENGINEERING
Introduction to the course
Outcomes for the course and online presence
What the course is about
What is nuclear engineering?
What kind of work is done?
What is the difference between science and engineering?
Math is done. A lot. Being able to describe phenomena with math is important and a powerful tool.
What to get out of the course
Understanding nuclear engineering problems
Skills to solve them
Scientific computing concepts
Breakdown for the course
Assignments require outside research
Collaboration is encouraged
Introduction to nuclear engineering, John R. Lamarsh, ISBN 0-201-14200-7 (1983).
Fundamentals of nuclear science and engineering, J. Kenneth Shultis, Richard E. Faw, ISBN 0-8247-0834-2 (2002).
Nuclear chemical engineering, M. Benedict, T. H. Pigford, H. W. Levi, ISBN 0-07-004531-3 (1981).
Follow along with book
No specific reading assignments but it will guide the course
Context based learning
Guidelines are broad and it is up to you to figure out solutions, like real-life engineering
Online class management
Lectures on prezi
Message boards and announcements on piazza --> go there now and show syllabus --> Class Survey
Both have phone/tablet apps for android/apple
MCNP RSICC/INL HPC
Differential equations - just Laplace transform and standard models
Matrix algebra, etc.
Learn a real graphing program
Use my python graphing code
Binary nuclear reactions
Radiation interactions with matter
Detection and measurement of radiation
Radiation doses and risk assessment
Monte Carlo simulation
Principles of nuclear reactors and nuclear power
Nonproliferation and nuclear weapons
Human skill based on a set of principles derived from practices and capable of being taught
Knowledge, which consists of knowing why or knowing that
The end of which is realized in the very doing of the activity
Aristotle also had something to say about engineering education apparently
