NUC-402 Nuclear Materials

Nuclear Materials is a study of materials used in nuclear engineering applications. It is designed to provide an understanding of atomic bonding; crystalline and noncrystalline structures; diffusion; failure analysis and prevention; kinetics; mechanical and thermal behavior; phase diagrams; ceramics; polymers; composites; and materials used in engineering designs. The course also includes descriptions of characteristic properties and methods conducting common tests and interpreting results.

Advisory: It is strongly recommended that you do not take any of the Nuclear Engineering Technology and Radiation Protection area of study courses unless your math skills, up to and including derivatives and integrals, are current. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
