  • Managing Nuclear Projectsby Jas Devgun

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 230.00

    In addition to the nuclear power industry, the nuclear field has extensive projects and activities in the areas of research reactors, medical isotope production, decommissioning, and remediation of contaminated sites. Managing nuclear projects focuses on the management aspects of nuclear projects in a wide range of areas with emphasis on process, requirements,... more...

  • Materials Ageing and Degradation in Light Water Reactorsby K L Murty

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 250.00

    Light water reactors (LWRs) are the predominant class of nuclear power reactors in operation today; however, ageing and degradation can influence both their performance and lifetime. Knowledge of these factors is therefore critical to safe, continuous operation. Materials ageing and degradation in light water reactors provides a comprehensive guide... 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...

  • 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...
