By popular demand, I bring you an annotated video of the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor! The sound is fixed and many things are explained. If you have any questions or want elaboration on any part of this video, please leave a comment. I love explaining nuclear power to curious people. I look forward to reading your comments! PS: I'm aware of spelling errors in the video (I am an engineer ya know). No need to point them out.

Nuclear Reactor - Understanding how it works | Physics Elearnin video Nuclear reactors are the modern day devices extensively used for power generation as the traditional fossil fuels, like coal, are at the breach of extinction. A nuclear reactor is the source of intense heat which is in turn used for generation of power in nuclear power station. Its mechanism is similar to that of a furnace in a steam generator; the steam is used to drive the turbines of the electric generator system. A nuclear reactor consists of three crucial components: Fuel elements, moderator and control rods. Fuel elements come usually in the shape of thin rods of about 1cm in diameter and contain fissionable nuclei, like Uranium (235 92U or 238 92U). These rods vary in number according to the size of the react...
Taking the reactor in steady state mode from 0 to 80% and down some... kinda lengthy but good demonstation of cherenkov radiation intensity. Next time I will turn the lights in the room off in addition to the pool. Here is a link to the same reactor pulsing - ejecting rods to go prompt supercritical https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkPyGFjVKOA
The Aerojet General Nucleonics Reactor, known as the AGN - 201, located at Idaho State University is now in its 50th year of operation. Adam Mallicoat, Reactor Supervisor, says that it was designed to be operated by young people, specifically for high school students. "You would go and you would train on the reactor and learn how to operate while you were still in high school. You would graduate and you would go out and start working at a power plant, or a national lab," Mallicoat said. The company that originally designed the reactor, Aerojet General Nucleonics, is out of business, and not producing any replacement parts. If a part breaks it can be upgraded, or rebuilt by a machinist. The AGN 201 Nuclear Reactor is one of only five similar models left in the world. Mallicoat says th...
Underwater camera view of nuclear reactor taken from critical to super prompt critical. Imagine a loud bang, that's the sound. There is a very intense display of cherenkov radiation followed by a very fast decay. Here is a link to the same reactor in a steady state mode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sve4qSlH3GE&t=29s
We've combined state of the art cookware with revolutionary stove design to make the Reactor stove the fastest, most fuel efficient stove system ever. The Reactor stove's radiant burner is enclosed by a unique heat exchanger for unmatched performance in windy conditions while an advanced pressure regulator provides optimal heat output over the life of a fuel canister. Stove and fuel stow inside of the high-efficiency 1.7-liter pot that's great for everything from solo trips to cooking for groups of up to three people. A collapsible handle locks the unique see-thru lid in place for safe and easy transport.

Unimaginable Disaster: Japan Declares Crisis As Fukushima Reactor Begins Falling Into The Pacific Ocean And Radiation Soars To The Highest Levels Ever Seen. The latest developments at Japan's Fukushima reactor have been described as "unimaginable"and "unprecedented". Officials state that damages at the reactor are "far worse than previously thought". Melted fuel has come in contact with underground water and the melted core appears spread over an "extensive area". Radiation levels at the Fukushima reactor have also soared to their highest levels since the 2011 disaster. The radiation levels inside the containment vessel of the number 2 reactor at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex stood at 530 sieverts per hour, the highest since the 2011 disaster, the plant operator said o...
This is the research reactor on the Washington State University campus pulsing to 1.2GW at different levels of reactivity (in units of dollars). The blue glow is caused by high energy beta particles (or electrons) interacting with the water around the reactor. The reactor is a 1MW TRIGA type and is used for research only (no power is produced). Various isotopes produced and neutron beams are used to aid in research for the chemistry and biological science department, as well as many other research projects on campus. There are only 12 other university reactors of this size left in the US.
The pulse is an occasional event, and is usually part of the reactor's annual checkup. Fortunately, thanks to YouTube, you can watch it over and over and over.
The Kansas State University TRIGA Mk II Reactor provides services for education, research, and training, and outreach. The reactor is licensed to operate at up to 1250 kWth. For more information visit http://www.mne.ksu.edu/research/centers/reactor/

Information starting a CSTR. Important here to note that this is an Unsteady State Operation! Therefore, we get the accumulation term and we can't apply the conversion equations! The importance si "how much time" we need to achieve the Steady State Conditions!

Pulsing of Nuclear Reactor- The reactor is brought to criticality and then the transient control rod is forced out. This causes a power pulse of about 500-1000 MW. Here is a different pulse we did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFAH_un1iqg&feature=g-upl
This video shows the cornerstone unveiling ceremony for the Ames Laboratory nuclear reactor. The event takes place on May 30, 1963, on the campus of Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa. Speeches and introductions were given by Frank Spedding, Director of the Ames Laboratory, James H. Hilton, President of Iowa State University, and Glenn T. Seaborg, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Those introduced at the ceremony included members of the Board of Regents of the State of Iowa, Congressman Neal Smith, members of the Atomic Energy Commission, and members of the Ames Laboratory including Harley Wilhelm, Adolph Voigt, and Willard McCorkle.
We apply the Molar Balance Equation to a Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor. This type of reactor has an inlet, outlet a generation but has no accumulation concept This is due to the steady state process (no changes in time) Typical operation of a CSTR is designed for long-time operations See Reactor Engineering Course Playlist: http://goo.gl/6e9iXj Visit the Web-Page for EXTRA content! www.ChemicalEngineeringGuy.com -º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º--º-- LIKE the video, it helps me to know what you like SHARE the video with your friends!

This hypothesis, as the name implies, state that there is "almost" a steady state in each intermediate reaction. This full reactions are the reaction mechanism.
