Synopsis:

Target of lecture is to create basic knowledge of physics of nuclear reactors utilizing fission. Further explains arrangement of nuclear fuel, purpose, technological and material construction of core. Function and construction of all components are defined wit regard to nuclear physics, physics of shielding, theory of regulation, material science, chemistry, heat transfer and dosimetry. Creates knowledge for evaluation of nuclear safety and radiation protection in nuclear energy, reliability and economy for comparison with other sources of energy, to environment and to strategic importancy of nuclear sources of energy. Gives basic knowledge of construction, operation and decommissioning of nuclear power stations. Informs about high level nuclear waste and spent fuel and their management.
