We live in a radiation field

 

  • Lecture given by: Ing. Radovan Starý (CTU/FNSPE)
      • September 21, 2022 from 9 AM

In case you are interrested, please contact us via

The term “radiation” is often connected with concerns about the operation of nuclear power plants. However, few people realise that the Earth’s surface, fauna and flora also comprise radioactive elements. Moreover, all living organisms are exposed to the radiation coming from outer space. Yet humans have developed in this environment and live happily and without health consequences. Although radioactive radiation sources are often associated with the operation of nuclear power plants, ionizing radiation is also widely used in industry, chemistry, biology and medicine. Everyone has undergone an X-ray examination at some point in their life or heard about computer tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Ionizing radiation is used for non-destructive material testing, measuring the thickness of semi-finished products, in fire alarms, for food sterilisation and other purposes. Although ionizing radiation can be used in a great variety of applications and helps us in various fields of human activity, its potential hazards cannot be ignored. What radiation dose are we exposed to during a medical examination or visit to a nuclear power plant? What about the natural radionuclides around us?

From a natural nuclear reactor to nuclear power engineering

  

  • Lecture given by Ing. Jan Zdebor, CSc. (ZČU)
      • September 27, 2022 from 9 AM

In case you are interrested, please contact us via
lucie.grusova@skoda-js.cz

Paradoxically, the first constructor of a nuclear reactor able to maintain a fission chain reaction was not a human, but nature itself. In the African area known as Oklo, there were several natural nuclear reactors. The lecture provides a historical description of the physical phenomenon of fission from these first natural reactors, through the first attempts at the artificial launch of a fission chain reaction, to the present-day mass utilisation of nuclear power in power engineering. All this and a lot more are included in this lecture. The lecture is accompanied by an attractive presentation of photographs, charts and drawings.

Myths and facts about the nucleus
(+ Fukushima 11 years on)

   

  • Lecture given by: doc. Ing. Václav Dostál, Sc.D. (CTU/FME)
    • October 5, 2022 from 9 AM

In case you are interrested, please contact us via
lucie.grusova@skoda-js.cz

The accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant drew attention to the risks associated with the use of nuclear power. In some countries, it had a substantial impact on the further operation of nuclear power plants.

New myths keep cropping up with regards to the significant impact of the use of nuclear power plants on the environment. Responsible assessment of the risks associated with the use of nuclear power forms part of this lecture. The lecture also includes information about the accident at the Fukushima power plant, summarises the current situation there, and addresses the events that followed all over the world in reaction to the accident. The lecture is accompanied by an attractive presentation of photographs, charts and drawings.

Energy mix and the role of nuclear power engineering

  

    • Lecture given by: Ing. Jiří Tyc, (ČEZ, a.s.)
      • October 12, 2022 from 9 AM

In case you are interrested, please contact us via
lucie.grusova@skoda-js.cz

A global view of power engineering in the world today, the necessity to realise the value of available energy, the importance of its sufficiency and of the availability and finite nature of resources - all this is addressed in this lecture. The lecture includes a brief description of all types of energy mix sources and their advantages and disadvantages, a comprehensible explanation of the principle and operation of a nuclear power plant, as well as descriptions of a fission reaction, methods of control, the basic components of nuclear power plants and their functions, and the safety of nuclear power plants and their place in the energy mix. The lecture is accompanied by an attractive presentation of photographs, charts and drawings.

The environment and radioactive wastes

  

    • Lecture given by: Jan Karlovarský (SÚRAO)
      • October 19, 2022 from 9 AM

In case you are interrested, please contact us via
lucie.grusova@skoda-js.cz

The operation of nuclear installations, not only nuclear power plants, and their decommissioning at the end of their service life, generates large quantities of radioactive wastes or only potentially radioactive materials. A part of such materials may be released into the environment without the necessity for their long-term controlled storage, while some others must be stored safely over a long period.

What are the perspectives and can we get rid of such wastes reliably?

The lecture also includes information on the path of uranium, from mining through the enrichment process, manufacture of nuclear fuel and irradiation in a nuclear reactor to the methods of handling the spent fuel from the moment it is removed from the nuclear reactor.


At the exhibition you will see

  • Models of reactors
  • Models of spent nuclear fuel containers
  • Model of deep repository
    for spent nuclear fuel
  • Cloud chamber
  • Model of nuclear fuel cartridge for the PWR1000 reactor
  • Radiometer
  • and much more...
