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/
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...
Isothermal reactor design, not at steady state.
The blue light is known as Cherenkov radiation. It is similar to a sonic boom, but instead of an object travelling faster than the speed of sound, a charged particle is travelling faster than the speed of light in a medium. In this case, the speed of light in water is roughly 75% the speed of light in a vacuum. It tests the time-dependent properties of the fuel. Engineers use that data to predict what would happen if there were an accident at a large reactor Cherenkov radiation, also known as Vavilov–Cherenkov radiation,[a] is electromagnetic radiation emitted when a charged particle (such as an electron) passes through a dielectric medium at a speed greater than the phase velocity of light in that medium. The characteristic blue glow of an underwater nuclear reactor is due to Cherenkov ...
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...
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!

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
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
Animation of the Worked Example (Appendix B) from AIChE CCPS "Guidelines for Safe Automation of Chemical Processes" (1993b) Reactor cycles through some basic conditions and the valve, motor & control valve positions are shown as active/open = Green or inactive/closed = Red.
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!

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!

Take a tour inside the first large-scale nuclear reactor ever built in the world. Developed to make plutonium for the first nuclear weapons, Hanford was built in an isolated area in state of Washington. Now open to public, anyone can take a tour. I've included full tour footage.
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.
