I believe that you'll find the subject of fusion to be largely
theoretical and pretty much all math. Brush up on your electromagnetic
field theory in preparation.

To date the only viable fusion devices produced have been thermonuclear
bombs. That's likely where the course will begin. So far as controlled,
continuous fusion, no one has accomplished that objective yet, still
hope springs eternal.

Years back I worked at Forrestal Research Labs on the C-Stellerator,
which now sits in the Smithsonian. When it was in operation, it had no
shielding walls...and that tells the entire story.

Since no body knows for sure how to do it, I suggest you get some info on
thermonuclear reactions (try amazon), get a couple of other graduates you
know who want to make a mint and invest some money and time to do your own
tests to see if you can crack the problem. It needs young original minds,
us 63- year olds are still doing what we did when we were 19.

If you want to look and my life's experiences that relate to the subject
look at http://www.newelectricity.co.uk Remember if you discover a solution
it will be classified because it is strategic and no one wants a nation of
domestic atom bombs in the services cupboard all over the world.

Hi,

I'll be taking a fusion course this year as part of my final year of
Nuke. Engr. program. Until now, the emphasis with statics, kinetics and
reactor design has been entirely on fission. How different will the
fusion course come out to be ?

Does the math or physics aspect strike a chord with what I've learned
in my statics/kinetics course or is it an entirely new ball game (i.e
fission vs. fusion concepts, aside ) ? Any recurrence of the
diffusion/point kinetics/neutron transport equation theory ?

Its' just that I dont' want to be dissapointed with this course, given
not many of the students are concerned with a technology that has yet
to be successfully implemented.

Regards,
Nuclear1
