Course development and history
The main areas that will be treated are:
• Reactor concepts
• Water chemistry
• Radiation chemistry
• Controlled water chemistry
• Water treatment
• Reactor chemistry for other reactor types (incl. gen. IV)
Students shall after the course be able to:
• Describe the chemical processes that are important in today’s nuclear reactors with focus on water chemistry and radiolysis
• Apply the above knowledge on the applications of chemical nature that occur in a nuclear reactor, such as corrosion, formation of CRUD, degradation of ion exchangers, etc.
• Understand the basic differences in the chemistry of different reactor types between other types than water reactors
• Describe the chemical problems one is facing when designing a 4th generation nuclear reactor
