Course Overview

The objectives of this NEW CNS course are an overview of thermalhydraulics (TH), followed by broadening the area of TH as applied to CANDU reactors. The attendees will be presented with the fundamentals of TH, importance of TH in nuclear-energy utilization and nuclear safety, TH phenomena, TH discipline applied for different nuclear facilities with a focus on CANDU, and areas of application (design, operation, safety evaluation, uncertainty, scaling, R&D, etc.) 

The CNS is presenting this course to enhance the professional and technical capabilities of its members (and non-members) working in, or interested in, the nuclear industry.  The course is ideally suited for beginning professionals, but also beneficial as a refresher overview course to experienced professionals.  Come broaden your nuclear knowledge beyond your specific area of work and your own area 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, with an after-dinner speech highlighting a timely topic in the Canadian Nuclear industry.


The following topics will be covered in the course

  • CANDU Overview: Big Picture

  • Thermalhydraulics Fundamentals

  • Fuel and Fuel-channel Thermalhydraulics

  • PHTS System Operations

  • Safety Analysis

  • Experiments to support Thermalhydraulics

  • Computer Codes or Tools

  • V&V of Thermalhydraulic Computer Codes and Simulation Uncertainty Assessment

Objectives of the Course

  • To provide an introduction to thermalhydraulics and fuel heat removal for CANDU Reactors. 
  • To provide an overview of the major CANDU TH systems
  • To present safety-analysis approaches
  • To provide an overview of TH computer codes
  • To network with colleagues in the industry
