NC State celebrates 70 years of nuclear engineering education

The Department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has spent the 2020–2021 academic year celebrating the 70th anniversary of its becoming the first U.S. university to establish a nuclear engineering curriculum. It started in 1950, when Clifford Beck, then of Oak Ridge, Tenn., obtained support from NC State’s dean of engineering, Harold Lampe, to build the nation’s first university nuclear reactor and, in conjunction, establish an educational curriculum dedicated to nuclear engineering.
The department, host to the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, scheduled for April 8–10, now features 23 tenure/tenure-track faculty and three research faculty members. “What a journey for the first nuclear engineering curriculum in the nation,” said Kostadin Ivanov, professor and department head.

Equilibrium isotherms for the adsorption of H2, HD, HT, D2, DT and T2 on synthetic zeolite type 5A or 13X at 77.4 K are estimated by using a theoretical formula, where the isotopic difference in adsorption depends on the zero-point energy difference between hydrogen isotopes. The formula agrees with the experimental isotherms for H2 and D2 on the zeolites. Adsorption of H2-D2 and H2-HD-D2 mixtures on the same adsorbents is experimentally examined. The experiments are performed using a volumetric apparatus and a quadra-pole-type mass spectrograph. The experimental adsorption behavior of H2, D2 and HD shows agreement of separation factors with results calculated according to the ideal adsorbed solution theory describing multi-component behavior, where the equilibrium isotherms estimated for H2, HD and D2 are used. Based on the theoretical adsorption model, the multi-component behavior of HT, DT and T2 is predicted here.
