  • Nuclear Development Risks and Benefits of Nuclear Energyby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 33.00

    In the context of sustainable development policies, decision making in the energy sector should be based on carefully designed trade-offs which take into account, insofar as feasible, all of the alternative options’ advantages and drawbacks from the economic, environmental and social viewpoints. This report examines various aspects of nuclear... more...

  • Nuclear Science Structural Materials for Innovative Nuclear Systems (SMINS)by OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 154.00

    Structural materials research is a field of growing relevance in the nuclear sector, especially for the different innovative reactor systems being developed within the Generation IV International Forum (GIF), for critical and subcritical transmutation systems, and of interest to the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP). Under the auspices of the... more...

  • Nuclear Powerby J. Wood

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2007; US$ 56.00

    Explains in detail how nuclear power works, its costs, benefits as part of the electricity supply system and examines its record. This book covers the nuclear power debate. more...

  • Nuclear Energy Outlook 2008by OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 147.00

    World energy demand continues to grow unabated and is leading to very serious concerns about security of supply, soaring energy prices and climate change stemming from fossil fuel consumption. Nuclear energy is being increasingly seen as having a role to play in addressing these concerns. Responding to renewed interest in nuclear energy, this... more...

  • International Approaches to Securing Radioactive Sources Against Terrorismby Derek M. Robinson

    Springer 2008; US$ 129.00

    There is a voluntary International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) code of conduct, on the sorts of radiological sources used to make radiological dirty bombs. This book covers discussions designed to enhance cooperation between NATO and Partner countries in support of IAEA efforts to secure radioactive sources against the threat of terrorism. more...

  • Nuclear Reactor Physicsby Weston M. Stacey

    Wiley 2007; US$ 232.00

    Nuclear reactor physics is the core discipline of nuclear engineering. Nuclear reactors now account for a significant portion of the electrical power generated worldwide, and new power reactors with improved fuel cycles are being developed. At the same time, the past few decades have seen an ever-increasing number of industrial, medical, military,... more...

  • The Quest for a Fusion Energy Reactorby Weston Stacey

    Oxford University Press, USA 2010; US$ 19.99

    At the Geneva Superpower Summit in November 1985, Secretary of the former Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Regan agreed to pursue an international effort to develop fusion energy for peaceful purposes. At a time when tension between these cold war nations was very high, how were these leaders able to come together to work towards... more...

  • Nuclear Power and Energy Securityby Samuel A. Apikyan

    Springer 2010; US$ 169.00

    World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards in rapidly growing countries. The last years, we routinely hear about a "renaissance" of nuclear energy. The recognition... more...

  • Nuclear Corrosion Modelingby Roy Castelli

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 230.00

    Corrosion in nuclear power plants cause reductions in efficiency and increases in deposit build-up on plant surfaces, making for expensive maintentance and potential radiological health hazards. This book guides studies to predict and minimize corrosion, thus making nuclear power safer and more cost effective. Too often, reliance on empirical models... more...

  • Environmental Radionuclidesby Klaus Froehlich

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 210.00

    The book presents a state-of-the-art summary of knowledge on the use of radionuclides to study processes and systems in the continental part of the Earth?s environment. It is conceived as a companion to the two volumes of this series, which deal with isotopes as tracers in the marine environment (Livingston, Marine Radioactivity ) and with the radioecology... more...
