The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the CANDU fuel design, performance and operation, and how the fuel interacts with the interfacing systems.  The course will be of great interest to the fuel designers, manufacturers, station operations, fuel channel and fuel handling system designers, safety analysts, performance and inspection staff. 

This course will provide an overview of the CANDU fuel design, modeling, performance and operation, with a special emphasis on the systems that interface with it.  Fuel, more than any other reactor component, interfaces with many different systems.  This course is designed to enlighten those involved in fuel design and performance of the interfaces; and vice versa.  The course will describe the design of the bundle, the detailed nuclear physics of its operation, the thermal-hydraulic performance, the fuel handling, fuel and physics of the reactor, the discharge and storage of the fuel.
