Most popular at the top

  • General Reactor Technologyby Hugo A. Jakobsen

    Springer 2008; US$ 279.00

    Presents the fundamentals of single-fluid and multi-fluid models for the analysis of single- and multiphase reactive flows in chemical reactors with a chemical reactor engineering rather than mathematical bias. This book discusses numerical methods for solving the resulting equations as well as the interplay between physical and numerical modes. more...

  • Maintenance of Process Instrumentation in Nuclear Power Plantsby H. M. Hashemian

    Springer 2006; US$ 209.00

    Compiles 30 years of practical knowledge gained by the author and his staff in testing the I and C systems of nuclear power plants around the world. This book focuses on process temperature and pressure sensors and the verification of these sensors' calibration and response time. more...

  • Nuclear Energyby Raymond Murray

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 92.95

    Nuclear Energy is one of the most popular texts ever published on basic nuclear physics, systems, and applications of nuclear energy. This newest edition continues the tradition of offering a holistic treatment of everything the undergraduate engineering student needs to know in a clear and accessible way. Presented is a comprehensive overview of... more...

  • Debris Impact on Emergency Coolant Recirculationby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 151.00

    This conference proceedings examines the most recent research and developments related to the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation.  Held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in February 2004, this proceedings had sessions on safety assessment and regulatory requirements, experimental work, analytical work, and industry solutions.  The... more...

  • The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycleby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 98.00

    The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by... more...

  • Pellet-clad Interaction in Water Reactor Fuelsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 154.00

    This book presents the proceedings of an international seminar which reviewed recent progress in the field of pellet-clad interaction in light water reactor fuels. It also draws a comprehensive picture of current understanding of relevant phenomena and their impact on the nuclear fuel rod, under the widest possible conditions. State-of-the-art... more...

  • Evolution of the System of Radiological Protectionby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 56.00

    One of the main challenges facing radiological protection experts is how to integrate radiological protection within modern concepts of and approaches to risk governance. It is within this context that the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) decided to develop new general recommendations to replace its Publication 60 recommendations... more...

  • Pyrochemical Separationsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 128.00

    The industrial treatment of spent nuclear fuel is presently performed using different wet chemical processes. Alternative dry processes, using pyrochemical methods, have received some attention due to their potential advantages in terms of plant design and criticality safety, as well as radiation dose. Recent progress in the transmutation of long-lived... more...

  • Nuclear Fuel Safety Criteria Technical Reviewby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 33.00

    Nuclear reactor safety is primarily concerned with the prevention of radiation-related damage to the public from the operation of commercial nuclear reactors; safety limits are introduced to avoid fuel failures during normal operation, or to mitigate the consequences of reactor accidents in which substantial damage is done to the reactor core. In this... more...

  • Reduction of Capital Costs of Nuclear Power Plantsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 64.00

    The competitiveness of nuclear power plants depends largely on their capital costs that represent some 60 per cent of their total generation costs. Reviewing and analysing ways and means to reduce capital costs of nuclear power plants are essential to enhance the economic viability of the nuclear option. The report is based upon cost information and... more...
