MetadataShow full item record
This course introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. It covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point kinetics, and fission-product poisoning. We emphasize the nuclear physics basis of reactor design and its relationship to reactor engineering problems.
reactor physics, reactor layout, binding energy, fission, neutron cross-sections, liquid drop model, neutron life cycle, criticality, accidents, neutron flux, neutron current, neutron diffusion theory, elastic neutron scattering, group diffusion method, subcritical multiplication, point kinetics, dynamic period equation, inhour equation, shutdown margin

S.; Drabek, H.; e.a. (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-03)Many theories beyond the Standard Model postulate short-range modifications to gravity which produce deviations of Newton’s gravitational potential from a strict 1/r dependence. It is common to analyze experiments searching ...
