This capstone course is a group design project involving integration of nuclear physics, particle transport, control, heat transfer, safety, instrumentation, materials, environmental impact, and economic optimization. It provides opportunities to synthesize knowledge acquired in nuclear and non-nuclear subjects and apply this knowledge to practical problems of current interest in nuclear applications design. Each year, the class takes on a different design project; this year, the project is a power plant design that ties together the creation of emission-free electricity with carbon sequestration and fossil fuel displacement. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

    Lecture 4: Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and House of Quality

    Lecture 4: Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and House of Quality

    This lecture demonstrates Quality Function Deployment (QFD) methods, and more specifically the House of Quality diagram, to identify and manage design tradeoffs, using the example of a hypothetical new car design.

    Lecture 7: Qualitative Optimization of CaC2/Acetylene Block Diagram

    Lecture 7: Qualitative Optimization of CaC2/Acetylene Block Diagram

    This lecture is a sample of how to optimize a system block diagram. After summarizing the goal and initial results from the previous session, this lecture works through refinements in materials, thermal design, flow rates, environmental rules, etc.

    Lecture 8: Metals and Cheeses - Uncoventional Pairings

    Lecture 8: Metals and Cheeses - Uncoventional Pairings

    This lecture explores the microstructure characteristics of metals in high temperature/high stress situations, via hands-on experience with similar structures and behaviors in selected cheeses. Cheese-tasting asides enrich the experience.
