NQE656 Advanced Nuclear Systems and Materials
Course Introduction :
In this course, the materials and environments of the generation-IV reactors and fusion reactors, and the key material issues under active research. The properties and strengthening mechanisms of ferritic martensitic steels and nickel-base superalloys are explained in view of those high temperature nuclear environments. The materials degradation in various environments such as, liquid-metal, super-critical water, super-critical CO2, high temperature helium, and so on, are described. Finally, the impact of the surface damage to high temperature properties are discussed. To encourage the participation of students, students seminar on selected topics are included as well as lecture.
