Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a starter in Nuclear thermal hydraulics course, and I'm having a hard time in solving this problem:

1. Consider a PWR operating at the thermal power of 1893MW. It contains 193 fuel assemblies, each consisting of 204 UO2 fuel rods 1cm in diameter. Using the equation

http://file:///C:\Users\Koki\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.png [Broken]

With 200MeV and 180MeV deposited and recoverable energies per fission respectively, and extrapolated radius of 170.2cm and extrapolated height of 365.76cm. Determine the location of the rod with maximum heat generation then calculate the maximum heat generation rate per unit volume in that rod.

can anyone help??
