This note will focus on the
basics of nuclear reactor design. Topics covered includes: Design, and
Licensing, Reactors and Core Concepts, Heating, Fuel, and Fuel Element Analysis,
Reactor Flow and Pump Sizing, Introductory Neutronics, Six Factor Formula,
Neutron Transport, Neutron Kinetics, Power Conversion Systems, Nuclear Safety
and Nuclear Safety Analysis.
This note explains the following
topics: Structure of nuclei, The strong nuclear force, Model of the nuclei,
Nuclear transitions, Nuclear reactions, Scattering experiments, A role model:
Quantum electrodynamics, Strong interactions, Weak interactions, Beyond the
standard model, Candidate theories beyond the standard model.
The purpose of
this guide is to describe in complete detail a FORTRAN code named Program SCAT 4
written by the UCLA group in order to analyze elastic scattering of various
particle. Topics covered includes: Mathematical Description, Program
Description, Description of Input Data, Symbolic Listing of the Program.
