- 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...

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...
- 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...
- 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...

Though nuclear energy provides much more power than fossils fuels like coal, its use is hotly debated because of the potential for radiation seeping into surrounding areas. Still, it is widely used and has developed immensely in recent years. From its development to its environmental impacts, Nuclear Power discusses the positive and negative implications... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 159.00
The book discusses the legal and technical requirements for manufacturers, designers and testers of electromedical devices. It describes which obstacles must be overcome to introduce a medical device on the European market, but also informs readers as to pitfalls and opportunities, and in which way safety can be achieved and product liability limited.... more...
- Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2009; US$ 30.00
An analysis of the current (February 2009) status and future potential of India's nuclear fuel cycle is presented in this book. Such a fuel cycle assessment is important, but relatively opaque because India regards various aspects of its nuclear fuel cycle as strategically sensitive. Any study therefore necessarily depends upon reverse calculations... more...
- OECD Publishing 2012; US$ 84.00
The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) first published in 2000 Nuclear Education and Training: Cause for Concern? , which highlighted significant issues in the availability of human resources for the nuclear industry. Ten years on, Nuclear Education and Training: From Concern to Capability considers what has changed in that time and finds that, while... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 139.00
Nuclear engineering has undergone extensive progress over the years. In the past century, colossal developments have been made and with specific reference to the mathematical theory and computational science underlying this discipline, advances in areas such as high-order discretization methods, Krylov Methods and Iteration Acceleration have steadily... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 136.00
Nuclear energy will inevitably become an important issue worldwide in the 21st century. It pollutes the environment, with consequences that are highly controversial; and it generates plutonium — the essential component of nuclear weapons. At the same time, it is a realistic alternative to at least some of the expected huge increase in global... more...
