Purpose and Outline
The Nuclear Safety Research Reactor (NSRR) at the Nuclear Science Research Institute of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) is one of the research reactors, commonly known as the TRIGA reactor, built by GA of the United States as a dedicated reactor for studying the safety of fuels used in nuclear power plants.
In this practical training, students learn how to perform criticality proximity experiments using the NSRR, how to calibrate control rods using the positive period method and the drop method, and also experience reactor operation by actually operating control rods and other equipment.
The objective is to understand reactor physics theory through practical training.
