Course Aims

The aims of this course are to equip students:

  • with knowledge of the properties and structures of nuclear materials and engineering alloys used in nuclear power reactor applications; and
  • with ability to identify the common range of nuclear fuel elements, assemblies, and fuel rod failure mechanisms as well as the materials issues involving the core internals, reactor pressure vessel, and primary circuit-piping systems for light water reactors (LWRs) and extended the materials issues into the advanced nuclear reactor systems.
