ENU 4134 Syllabus, Fall 2011 – D. Schubring 1 ENU 4134 – Reactor Thermal Hydraulics 2 (3 credits) Required Course – Fall 2011 1. Description: (Official catalog version) Continuation of ENU 4133. Fundamentals of two-phase flow, gov- erning equations of one-dimensional two-phase flow dynamics, two-phase friction multiplier, con- stitutive relationship and correlation void fraction, closure relationships for interfacial transport terms, fundamentals of heat transfer with phase change, pool boiling, forced convective boiling, condensation, correlation for two-phase heat transfer coefficient, thermal hydraulic design of fuel elements, sub-channel thermal hydraulics, and thermal hydraulic design analysis methods for water cooled reactors. (Draft Revised Version) Continuation of ENU 4133. Heat transfer: nuclear heat generation, thermal analysis of nuclear fuel forms, steam generator analysis. Fundamentals of two-phase flow: transport equations for mass, momentum, and energy; one-dimensional two-phase flow; correlations for void fraction; critical flow; flow regime identification; two-phase pressure drop models; pool boiling; forced convective boiling; critical heat flux. Sub-channel thermal hydraulics: application of single-phase and two-phase fluid mechanics and convection to thermal analysis of nuclear reactors. 2. Prerequisite: (Official) : ENU 4133 (Advised) : The formal prerequisite can be waived if the student has adequate background. Such background would include fluid mechanics (ENU 4133 or EGN 3353C), heat transfer (EML 4140), and strong math skills (ENU 4001 or B-or-better in MAC 2313 [calc 3] and MAP 2302 [diff. eq.]). Some knowledge of nuclear systems is helpful, but can be studied independently, in parallel with this course. 3. Program Educational Objectives Supported by Course 1. Graduates will have successful careers in Nuclear Engineering or related disciplines. 2. Graduates will pursue advanced degrees or continuing education. 3. Graduates will communicate effectively and work collaboratively in Nuclear Engineering or related disciplines. 4. Graduates will use the knowledge and skills obtained in their undergraduate education to practice high ethical and professional standards in Nuclear Engineering or related disciplines. 4. Professional Components Supported by Course 1. Provide students with the ability to apply advanced mathematics, computational skills, sci- ence and engineering science, including atomic and nuclear physics, to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve nuclear and radiological engineering problems. 2. Provide students with knowledge of the fundamentals of radiation transport, interactions, and detection and with the principles required for the analysis, design, and safe operation of radiation producing devices and using equipment and systems. 4. Provide students with the skills needed to communicate effectively, work collaboratively, and understand their professional and ethical responsibilities and the impact of engineering solutions

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
