Nuclear engineering. Atomic power

  • Decommissioning Health Physicsby Eric W. Abelquist

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 146.95

    Decommissioning Health Physics presents many of the technical issues and challenges that arise during the planning and implementation of decommissioning and decontamination (D&D) projects. The focus is on the final status survey performed during the later stages of decommissioning projects. It expands upon and provides greater technical detail than... more...

  • Design Technology of Fusion Reactorsby M. Akiyama

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 229.00

    This book contains the contributions of over 40 outstanding applied physicists from Japan specializing in this area of design technology. Among them are K Miya, S Yamamoto, M Ohnishi, Y Ogawa, Y Sakai, T Kuroda, H Nariai, K Miyazaki, H Madarame, M Saitoh.The topics discussed extensively include: Plasma; First Wall and Impurity Control Engineering;... more...

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

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 400.00

    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...

  • Nuclear Power and Energy Securityby Samuel A. Apikyan

    Springer 2010; US$ 119.00

    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...

  • Magnetic Control of Tokamak Plasmasby Marco Ariola; Alfredo Pironti

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    The problem of confining a plasma, with sufficiently high density and temperature, is of crucial importance if nuclear fusion is to be made usable as a form of power generation. Tokamaks a" devices with a toroidal geometry a" are among the most popular candidates by which such confinement can be achieved. A tokamak separates a plasma from... more...

  • Probabilistic Safety Assessment for Optimum Nuclear Power Plant Life Management (PLiM)by G V Arkadov; A F Getman; A N Rodionov

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 245.00

    Probabilistic safety assessment methods are used to calculate nuclear power plant durability and resource lifetime. Successful calculation of the reliability and ageing of components is critical for forecasting safety and directing preventative maintenance, and Probabilistic safety assessment for optimum nuclear power plant life management provides... more...

  • Nuclear Computational Scienceby Yousry Azmy; Enrico Sartori

    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...

  • Nuclear Decommissioning, Waste Management, and Environmental Site Remediationby Colin Bayliss; Kevin Langley

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 130.00

    Decommissioning nuclear facilities is a relatively new field, which has developed rapidly in the last ten years. It involves materials that may be highly radioactive and therefore require sophisticated methods of containment and remote handling. The wastes arising from decommissioning are hazardous and have to be stored or disposed of safely in order... more...

  • Nuclear Commerceby Thomas Berndorfer

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 49.90

    Peaceful and non-peaceful applications of nuclear technologies share a common fate: one cannot exist without the other. As the world is about to experience a nuclear renaissance, the nuclear industry has gone through a phase of consolidation. Despite more efficient intra-industry structures and technological advancements it will still not be able to... more...

  • Standard-Einsatz-Regeln: Einsatz bei Photovoltaik-, Windenergie- und Biogasanlagenby Florian Besch; Ulrich Cimolino; Markus Weber; Ulrich Wolf

    Verlagsgruppe Hüthig Jehle Rehm 2012; US$ 19.55

    Der Inhalt: Einsätze mit Photovoltaik-, Windenergie- und Biogasanlagen haben in den letzten Jahren zugenommen. Nach dem Reaktorunglück in Japan im März 2011 und dem daraufhin in Deutschland beschlossenen Ausstieg aus der Atomenergie wird sich die Anzahl der Anlagen deutlich erhöhen. Daher muss sich über kurz oder lang jede Feuerwehr mit diesen neuen... more...
