Nuclear engineering. Atomic power

Most popular at the top

  • Magnetic Control of Tokamak Plasmasby Marco Ariola; Alfredo Pironti

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    The problem of confining a plasma, with sufficiently high density and temperature, is of crucial importance if nuclear fusion is to be made usable as a form of power generation. Tokamaks a" devices with a toroidal geometry a" are among the most popular candidates by which such confinement can be achieved. A tokamak separates a plasma from... more...

  • The Nuclear Imperativeby Jeff W. Eerkens

    Springer 2008; US$ 115.00

    Explores remedies for the impending energy crisis, when oil and natural gas are depleted. This book offers a fresh look at uranium-produced energy as the optimal affordable solution. It shows that uranium fission power is available for 1,500 years as a prime energy source to provide all the world's energy needs. more...

  • Nuclear Powerby J. Wood

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1753; US$ 56.00

    Explains in detail how nuclear power works, its costs, benefits as part of the electricity supply system and examines its record. This book covers the nuclear power debate. more...

  • Nuclear Energy Outlook 2008by OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 147.00

    World energy demand continues to grow unabated and is leading to very serious concerns about security of supply, soaring energy prices and climate change stemming from fossil fuel consumption. Nuclear energy is being increasingly seen as having a role to play in addressing these concerns. Responding to renewed interest in nuclear energy, this... more...

  • International Approaches to Securing Radioactive Sources Against Terrorismby Derek M. Robinson

    Springer 2008; US$ 89.95

    There is a voluntary International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) code of conduct, on the sorts of radiological sources used to make radiological dirty bombs. This book covers discussions designed to enhance cooperation between NATO and Partner countries in support of IAEA efforts to secure radioactive sources against the threat of terrorism. more...

  • The Quest for a Fusion Energy Reactorby Weston Stacey

    Oxford University Press, USA 2010; US$ 18.99

    At the Geneva Superpower Summit in November 1985, Secretary of the former Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Regan agreed to pursue an international effort to develop fusion energy for peaceful purposes. At a time when tension between these cold war nations was very high, how were these leaders able to come together to work towards... more...

  • Nuclear Power and Energy Securityby Samuel A. Apikyan

    Springer 2010; US$ 119.00

    World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards in rapidly growing countries. The last years, we routinely hear about a "renaissance" of nuclear energy. The recognition... more...

  • Trends in the Nuclear Fuel Cycleby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 61.00

    The role of nuclear energy in a sustainable development context has multiple facets, a significant number of which relate to the nuclear fuel cycle. This report provides a description of the developments and trends in the nuclear fuel cycle that may improve the competitiveness and sustainability of nuclear generating systems over the medium and long... more...

  • Physics of Plutonium Recyclingby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 75.00

    Although the recycling of plutonium as thermal mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel in pressurised water reactors (PWRs) is now well-established on a commercial scale, many physics questions remain. The main question addressed in this report is the number of times plutonium can effectively be recycled in a PWR. This report describes in particular an exercise based... more...
