Prerequisite: Registration in the UNENE M.Eng. or UNENE Diploma Program
- Zoom is the web conferencing tool for distance ed.
- It is highly recommended that you review the Physics refresher / prerequisite material for this course and the general Math refresher / prerequisite to ensure you are ready for UN0804. See the Refresher / Prerequisite Material page for further information.
Although the level of physics and math required for UN0803 is relatively modest, it is highly recommended that you review the Physics refresher / prerequisite material for this course and the general Math refresher / prerequisite to ensure you are ready for UN0803. See the Refresher / Prerequisite Material page for further information.
It is assumed you are familiar with CANDU design. If not, it is highly recommended that you skim the text for UN0803 to understand what you need to know; and read the relevent sections of the textbook: “The Essential CANDU” for a summary of the CANDU design.
Safety design and analysis of nuclear reactors based on deterministic and probabilistic assessments. Topics include: concepts of risk; probability tools and techniques; safety criteria; design basis accidents; risk assessment; safety analysis; safety system design; and general policy and principles.Info
Attendees must register in advance with Areti Tsiliganos (email@example.com). A reminder will be sent leading up to the dates for the courses.
