This textbook will stimulate the interest of students in nuclear reactor theory and help them to master the topic within a short period of time. Part 1, Elements of Nuclear Reactor Theory, is composed of only elements but the main resource for the lecture of nuclear reactor theory, and should be studied as common knowledge.
In this fast-paced, demanding course, the main topics--which include atomic theory, nuclear chemistry, periodicity, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gases, solutions, reaction kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base theory, oxidation-reduction, and organic chemistry--are studied at an advanced level, with an focus on both conceptual understanding and problem-solving.
Quantitative aspects of chemical concepts are emphasized throughout the course.
Part 2, Reactor Analysis is aimed to cover all areas of reactor physics and contains detailed descriptions.
This note explains correctly the major ideas associated with Nuclear Chemistry listed below, to work numerical problems involving these concepts and to extend the use of these concepts to unknown situations.
The study of radiation effects has developed as a major field of materials science from the beginning, approximately 70 years ago.
