- 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...

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...
- Wiley 2013; US$ 350.00
This collection presents an exchange of ideas among scientists and engineers about the economic and safety concerns surrounding environmentally induced materials problems which lead to nuclear power plant outages. Scientists and engineers concerned with the environmental degradation processes (corrosion, mechanical, and radiation effects) present their... more...
- Taylor and Francis 1996; US$ 210.00
There is a growing recognition amongst those involved with the creation and distribution of nuclear power of the value and positive impact of ergonomics, recognition heightened by the realization that safety incidents are rarely the result of purely technical failure. This work provides insights into plant design, performance shaping factors,... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 164.95
Technological and social aspects of industrial safety come under the scrutiny of scientists and engineers from an array of backgrounds. This is the third publication developed from a very fruitful, longstanding cooperation between the Institute of Social Research within the Institute of Nuclear Safety System in Japan, and the Research Center Systems... more...
- RAND Corporation 2003; US$ 9.95
Although US-Russian relations and nuclear postures have improved, the risk of accidential and unauthorized use of nuclear weapons remains a serious problem. This report presents a phased approach for improving both nuclear safety and US-Russian relations. more...
- RAND Corporation 2002; US$ 9.95
The Office of Nonproliferation Research and Engineering conducts wide-ranging research for diverse end users at the federal and local level. This work suggests promising methods to enable the Office to serve its users' needs while justifying its budget. more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2003; US$ 75.00
The commercial recycling of plutonium as PuO2/UO2 mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel is an established practice in pressurised water reactors (PWRs) in several countries, the main motivation being the consumption of plutonium arising from spent fuel reprocessing. more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 109.00
In response to growing 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 the Third Information Exchange Meeting on Basic Studies in the Field of High-temperature Engineering. more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 39.00
In many countries, government R&D funding in the area of nuclear energy has been dramatically reduced or has disappeared altogether. At the same time, the profit margins of electricity generators have been severely squeezed. The combined effect has led to a reduction in technical innovation and the danger of the loss of technical competencies and skills... more...
