CNS CANDU Reactor Physics Course

2011 May 16-18
Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel
901 Dixon Road
Toronto, ON 
M9W 1J5


Course Overview

Reactor physics plays a key and central role among various disciplines involved in the design and operation of nuclear reactors. It deals with understanding the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors, and provides needed input to and interaction with all aspects of design, operation and safety-analysis activities. To address the training needs of the Canadian nuclear industry in this fundamental area, the CNS is happy to offer the CANDU Reactor Physics course.

The course introduces the main topics in the CANDU reactor physics discipline and covers key elements of the chief computer codes used in related analyses. It is ideally suited for beginning professionals but is also beneficial to those individuals who are active in specific design or operation activities. It is also beneficial to experienced professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge beyond their own field of expertise. 

Continental breakfast, buffet lunch, and coffee breaks are provided each day.  There will also be a banquet on the second evening of the course.  The after-dinner speech at the banquet will highlight a timely topic in this particular field in the Canadian Nuclear industry.

Topics to be covered in the course include:

  • Fundamental concepts
  • Lattice and supercell physics
  • Reactor core-design analysis
  • Fuel-management design and operation
  • Fast and slow kinetics
  • Licensing issues
  • Operational physics
  • ACR Physics

A panel has also been constituted to discuss advances in related analysis techniques.

This course is eligible for Continuing Education Units in the context of the Engineering Institute of Canada Continuing Education program.
