Nuclear Reactor Physics Experiments

By Tsuyoshi Misawa, Hironobu Unesaki, Cheolho Pyeon

The Kyoto University critical assembly is recognized as one of the most remarkable research reactors in the world to conduct basic experimental research in nuclear reactor physics. This textbook is based on the "Joint Laboratory Reactor Course for Students," carried out over 35 years in the Kyoto University Critical Assembly (KUCA). The book is edited as an international nuclear education and training course for all students and engineers from all over the world majoring in nuclear engineering. It covers indispensable topics, including approach to criticality, control rod calibration, and several reactor parameter measurements. Furthermore, it serves as a key reference for the main basis of nuclear education and training in Asia.
