Fundamentals and Basic Professional Training Courses: Reactor Physics
This Electronic textbook has been made available to the interested reader in
order to support self-study for those who are unfamiliar with basic nuclear engineering.
The target audience of this textbook are university
graduates or postgraduates
The manner in which the core of a nuclear reactor functions depends on the interaction of neutrons with atomic nuclei of matter.
The final topic covered in this course deals with general aspects of reactor operation, namely: effect of neutron sources, reactivity effects due to temperature changes, xenon poisoning and fuel burnup.
