Abstract:

Conclusions are as follows Criticality safety has not received sufficient attention in nuclear engineering curricula Safety attitudes should be strongly emphasized, where appropriate, in all existing courses Opportunities should be increased for students to see films on nuclear safety, and, wherever possible, to observe routine operations of pulsed reactors, criticality laboratories, and industrial plants Instituting required courses devoted primarily to criticality safety does not seem desirable A technical book on criticality safety is urgently needed Academic research in topics of interest for criticality safety should be enthusiastically supported, and aided by specialized advanced courses where appropriate and Cooperative institutes and intensive short courses for industrial specialists, faculty members, and graduate students should be organized support for academic attendees from a wide geographical area would be necessary.
