Nuclear engineering. Atomic power

Most popular at the top

  • Materials Issues for Generation IV Systemsby Veronique Ghetta; Dominique Gorse; Dominique Maziere; Vassilis Pontikis

    Springer 2008; US$ 279.00

    Global warming, shortage of low-cost oil resources and the increasing demand for energy are currently controlling the world's economic expansion while often opposing desires for sustainable and peaceful development. In this context, atomic energy satisfactorily fulfills the criteria of low carbon gas production and high overall yield. However,... more...

  • Nuclear Energyby Raymond Murray

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 92.95

    Nuclear Energy is one of the most popular texts ever published on basic nuclear physics, systems, and applications of nuclear energy. This newest edition continues the tradition of offering a holistic treatment of everything the undergraduate engineering student needs to know in a clear and accessible way. Presented is a comprehensive overview of... more...

  • Advanced Nuclear Reactor Safety Issues and Research Needsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 126.00

    New nuclear reactor designs are expected to have a higher level of safety than current designs. As part of the efforts to achieve this, important safety issues related to the new designs need to be identified at an early stage, and research required for problem resolution defined. These proceedings bring together the papers presented at the OECD/NEA... more...

  • Advanced Reactors with Innovative Fuelsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 218.00

    A new generation of nuclear reactor designs is being developed in order to meet the needs of the 21st century. In the short term, the most important objective is to improve competitiveness in the deregulated market. For this purpose evolutionary light water reactors are being developed and promoted actively. In the longer term, other requirements related... more...

  • Basic Studies in the Field of High-temperature Engineeringby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 126.00

    In response to increasing interest in high-temperature, gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs) in many countries and the need for improved materials for nuclear applications in high-temperature environments, the NEA organised a Second Information Exchange Meeting on Basic Studies in the Field of High-temperature Engineering. These proceedings provide an overview... more...

  • Nuclear Fuel Safety Criteria Technical Reviewby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 33.00

    Nuclear reactor safety is primarily concerned with the prevention of radiation-related damage to the public from the operation of commercial nuclear reactors; safety limits are introduced to avoid fuel failures during normal operation, or to mitigate the consequences of reactor accidents in which substantial damage is done to the reactor core. In this... more...

  • Reduction of Capital Costs of Nuclear Power Plantsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 64.00

    The competitiveness of nuclear power plants depends largely on their capital costs that represent some 60 per cent of their total generation costs. Reviewing and analysing ways and means to reduce capital costs of nuclear power plants are essential to enhance the economic viability of the nuclear option. The report is based upon cost information and... more...

  • Debris Impact on Emergency Coolant Recirculationby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 151.00

    This conference proceedings examines the most recent research and developments related to the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation.  Held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in February 2004, this proceedings had sessions on safety assessment and regulatory requirements, experimental work, analytical work, and industry solutions.  The... more...

  • The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycleby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 98.00

    The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by... more...

  • Pellet-clad Interaction in Water Reactor Fuelsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 154.00

    This book presents the proceedings of an international seminar which reviewed recent progress in the field of pellet-clad interaction in light water reactor fuels. It also draws a comprehensive picture of current understanding of relevant phenomena and their impact on the nuclear fuel rod, under the widest possible conditions. State-of-the-art... more...
