Experimental Nuclear Reactor Analysis: Theory, Numerical Models and Experimental Analysis presents a consolidated resource on reactor analysis, comprising theoretical concepts of reactor physics, dynamics and thermal-hydraulics. Each element is applied to predict the behaviour of the TRIGA test reactor and its validation with the experimental data. Edited by Dr. Antonio Cammi and written by a team of expert contributors, this book is divided into three parts which provide the reader with a very thorough understanding of the different facets of nuclear reactor analysis. Part one presents various theoretical aspects which are required for the development of a computational model and experimental activities such as nuclear reactor physics, dynamics and control, and nuclear thermal hydraulics. The second part considers the concepts discussed in the first part, but applies them to develop computational tools for modelling the thermal-hydraulic and neutronic behaviour of reactors. The third part explores experiments designed to verify the results of computational models presented, along with a detailed description and analysis of the obtained results. This book serves as a complete guide to reactor analysis providing important theoretical background followed by a more advanced exploration and analysis of the experimental procedure and applications. Where readers do not have access to a test facility, the knowledge and practical understanding obtained from this book will ensure they are equipped with a very detailed insight and understanding of experimental reactor analysis, ready to apply to their own research and professional projects. Includes coverage of the computational models for the prediction of nuclear reactor neutronics and thermal-hydraulics Presents a description of experimental setup and procedure using TRIGA reactor and detailed analysis of obtained results and validation of computational predictions Contains exercises and applications throughout to deepen knowledge and understanding
