The purpose of the course and textbook is to help students of nuclear engineering understand the essence of nuclear reactor physics and radiation protection thorough experiments conducted at the Kyoto University Critical Assembly C-core, which is moderated and reflected by water. After an introduction to the Assembly, the text covers approach to criticality, calibrating control rods, measuring the reaction rate, the Feynman-alpha method, and the pulsed neutron method.
