Neutron Interactions and Applications
MetadataShow full item record
This course is a foundational study of the effects of single and multiple interactions on neutron distributions and their applications to problems across the Nuclear Engineering department - fission, fusion, and RST. Particle simulation methods are introduced to deal with complex processes that cannot be studied only experimentally or by numerical solutions of equations. Treatment will emphasize basic concepts and understanding, as well as showing the underlying scientific connections with current research areas.
Neutron Interaction, Neutron Elastic Scattering: Thermal Motion, Chemical Binding Effects, Particle Simulations I, Monte Carlo Basics Monte Carlo in Statistical Physics and Radiation Transport, The Neutron Transport Equation, Neutron Slowing Down, Neutron Diffusion, Particle Simulation Methods, Basic Molecular Dynamics, Direct Simulation of Melting, Multiscale Materials Modeling, Thermal Neutron Scattering, Dynamic Structure Factor in Neutron Inelastic Scattering
