Course Overview

The first Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) Thermalhydaulics Course was held in Toronto on December 4-5 2017. We are now offering the second CNS Thermalhydaulics Course on-line on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The objectives of this course are an overview of thermalhydraulics (TH), followed by broadening the area of TH as applied to CANDU reactors. The attendees will be presented with the fundamentals of TH, the importance of TH in nuclear-energy utilization and nuclear safety, TH phenomena, TH discipline applied for different nuclear facilities with a focus on CANDU, and areas of application (design, operation, safety evaluation, uncertainty, scaling, R&D, etc.)

The CNS is presenting this course to enhance the professional and technical capabilities of its members (and non-members) working in, or interested in, the nuclear industry.  The course is ideally suited for beginning professionals, but also beneficial as a refresher overview course to experienced professionals.  Come broaden your nuclear knowledge beyond your specific area of work and your own area of expertise. 

The following topics would be covered in the course:

  • Thermalhydraulics Overview
  • Thermalhydraulics Fundamentals
  • Fuel and Fuel-channel Thermalhydraulics
  • Experiments to support Thermalhydraulics
  • Primary Heat-Transport System Operations
  • Thermalhydraulics Computer Codes Used for Safety Demonstrations
  • V&V of Thermalhydraulic Computer Codes and Simulation Uncertainty Assessment
  • Safety Analysis and Trip Coverage – NEW
  • Containment Thermalhydraulics – NEW

Besides two NEW topics, the existing topics will be enhanced to make the lectures easier to follow based on the feedbacks received from the last course.

Objectives

  • To provide an overview of thermalhydraulics
  • To broaden the area of thermalhydraulics as applied to CANDU reactors
  • To provide an overview of the primary heat-transport system
  • To network with colleagues in the industry
