  • Infrastructure Systems for Nuclear Energyby Thomas T. C. Hsu; Chiun-lin Wu; Jui-Liang Lin

    Wiley 2013; US$ 160.00

    Developing sufficient energy resources to replace coal, oil and gas is a globally critical necessity. Alternatives to fossil fuels such as wind, solar, or geothermal energies are desirable, but the usable quantities are limited and each has inherent deterrents. The only virtually unlimited energy source is nuclear energy, where safety of infrastructure... more...

  • Nuclear Decommissioningby M Laraia

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 355.00

    Once a nuclear installation has reached the end of its safe and economical operational lifetime, the need for its decommissioning arises. Different strategies can be employed for nuclear decommissioning, based on the evaluation of particular hazards and their attendant risks, as well as on the analysis of costs of clean-up and waste management. This... more...

  • Nuclear Fuel Cycle Science and Engineeringby Ian Crossland

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 300.00

    The nuclear fuel cycle is characterised by the wide range of scientific disciplines and technologies it employs. The development of ever more integrated processes across the many stages of the nuclear fuel cycle therefore confronts plant manufacturers and operators with formidable challenges. Nuclear fuel cycle science and engineering describes both... more...

  • Nuclear Corrosion Science and Engineeringby Damien Féron

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 415.00

    Corrosion of nuclear materials, i.e. the interaction between these materials and their environments, is a major issue for plant safety as well as for operation and economic competitiveness. Understanding these corrosion mechanisms, the systems and materials they affect, and the methods to accurately measure their incidence is of critical importance... more...

  • Infrastructure and Methodologies for the Justification of Nuclear Power Programmesby Agustin Alonso

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 415.00

    The potential development of any nuclear power programme should include a rigorous justification process reviewing the substantial regulatory, economic and technical information necessary for implementation, given the long term commitments involved in any new nuclear power project. Infrastructure and methodologies for the justification of nuclear power... more...

  • Advanced Separation Techniques for Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing and Radioactive Waste Treatmentby Kenneth L Nash; Gregg J Lumetta

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 265.00

    Advanced separations technology is key to closing the nuclear fuel cycle and relieving future generations from the burden of radioactive waste produced by the nuclear power industry. Nuclear fuel reprocessing techniques not only allow for recycling of useful fuel components for further power generation, but by also separating out the actinides, lanthanides... more...

  • Understanding and Mitigating Ageing in Nuclear Power Plantsby Philip G Tipping

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 370.00

    Plant life management (PLiM) is a methodology focussed on the safety-first management of nuclear power plants over their entire lifetime. It incorporates and builds upon the usual periodic safety reviews and licence renewals as part of an overall framework designed to assist plant operators and regulators in assessing the operating conditions of a... more...

  • Nuclear Fuel Cycle Optimizationby P. Silvennoinen

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Nuclear Fuel Cycle Optimization: Methods and Modelling Techniques discusses applicable methods for analysis of fuel cycle logistics and optimization and evaluation of the economics of various reactor strategies. The opening chapter covers the nuclear fuel cycle, while the next chapter tackles uranium supply and demand. Chapter 3 discusses basic model... more...

  • Electrochemistry in Light Water Reactorsby R-W Bosch; D Féron; J-P Celis

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 230.00

    There has long been a need for effective methods of measuring corrosion within light water nuclear reactors. This important volume discusses key issues surrounding the development of high temperature reference electrodes and other electrochemical techniques. The book is divided into three parts with part one reviewing the latest developments in the... more...

  • Distinguished Figures in Mechanism and Machine Scienceby Marco Ceccarelli

    Springer 2014; US$ 109.00

    This book is composed of chapters that focus specifically on technological developments by distinguished figures in the history of MMS (Mechanism and Machine Science). Biographies of well-known scientists are also included to describe their efforts and experiences and surveys of their work and achievements and a modern interpretation of their legacy... more...
