The course, starting from nuclear engineering fundamentals, presents an overview of all the modern nuclear technology developments.
The course has the aim to deepen the knowledge on to the nuclear fission and fusion applications, starting from nuclear engineering fundamentals and coming to the description of the state of the art in the nuclear plant developments. Particularly the course contributes to achieve the awareness of the nuclear technology applications in the energy field.
Lectures and practical exercises developed in classroom.
Recalls on nuclear reactions. Nuclear fission reactors classification. Nuclear fuel cycle. Light water reactors (LWR): “classical” PWR and BWR; Generation III/III+ reactors (EPR, AP-1000, ABWR, etc.). Heavy water reactors (CANDU). High temperature reactors (HTR) and nuclear hydrogen production. Generation-IV. General aspects of fast reactors. Sodium Fast Reactors (SFR), Lead Fast Reactors (LFR) and Gas Fast Reactors (GFR). Nuclear spent fuel and waste treatment. Hints on sub-critical reactors (ADS). Energy sources impacts. Energy scenarios. Hints on the nuclear installations decommissioning. Additional issues on Nuclear Fusion reactors: instabilities, toroidal configurations (Tokamak, Stellarator); the blanket and the related neutronics, heat transfer and tritium generation; materials activation; energetic and economic analyses of a potential inertial fusion plant; hints on third generation fusion; the most important on-going research projects on fusion in the world.
