Course unit title: Materials of Nuclear Power Plants
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)
seminar2 hours weekly (on-site method)

 
Credits allocated: 5
 
Recommended semester/trimester: Nuclear and Physical Engineering - bachelor (semi-compulsory), 6. semester
Level of study: 1.
Prerequisites for registration: none
 
Assesment methods:
Attendance on practice and evolvement of the reports. Student has to be present at all practices according to the schedule for the current semester. After an excuse for absence on laboratory exercise student has to practise the topic in compensatory date. If the student reaches less than 15 points during the semester on the practices, he will not be permitted to an exam (practices: max. 20%, exam 80%).
 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After the completion of the subject the student acquires basic knowledge about different types and properties of materials used in nuclear reactors and nuclear power engineering, about radiation damage, possibilities of long-term monitoring and eliminating of neutron embrittlement of steel reactor pressure vessels.
