  • 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...

  • Advanced Nuclear Reactor Safety Issues and Research Needsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 126.00

    New nuclear reactor designs are expected to have a higher level of safety than current designs. As part of the efforts to achieve this, important safety issues related to the new designs need to be identified at an early stage, and research required for problem resolution defined. These proceedings bring together the papers presented at the OECD/NEA... more...

  • Advanced Reactors with Innovative Fuelsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 218.00

    A new generation of nuclear reactor designs is being developed in order to meet the needs of the 21st century. In the short term, the most important objective is to improve competitiveness in the deregulated market. For this purpose evolutionary light water reactors are being developed and promoted actively. In the longer term, other requirements related... more...

  • Basic Studies in the Field of High-temperature Engineeringby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 126.00

    In response to increasing 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 a Second Information Exchange Meeting on Basic Studies in the Field of High-temperature Engineering. These proceedings provide an overview... more...

  • Nuclear Engineering Handbookby Kenneth D. Kok

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 164.95

    Nuclear power has, in recent years, undergone a major transformation, resulting in major technical developments and a new generation of nuclear scientists and engineers. A comprehensive book that reflects the latest nuclear technologies has been lacking?until now. The Nuclear Engineering Handbook is a response to this global resurgence of... more...

  • Corrosion problems related to nuclear waste disposalby A.D. Mercer; Ph. Merge

    The Institute of Materials. Minerals and Mining 1992; US$ 50.00

    Covers the corrosion related problems inherent in the various concepts of waste disposal which may result from different geological conditions of the host formations. Papers investigate the importance of engineered barriers; high strength corrosion resistant candidate nuclear waste containers; disposal of heat generating radioactive wastes in rock... more...

  • Nuclear Hydrogen Production Handbookby Xing L. Yan; Ryutaro Hino

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 252.00

    Written by two leading researchers from the world-renowned Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the Nuclear Hydrogen Production Handbook is an unrivalled overview of current and future prospects for the effective production of hydrogen via nuclear energy. Combining information from scholarly analyses, industrial data, references, and other resources,... more...

  • India's Nuclear Fuel Cycleby Taraknath V. K. Woddi; William S. Charlton; Paul Nelson

    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...

  • 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...

  • Assessment of the Nuclear Programs of Iran and North Koreaby Jungmin Kang

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    When we are looking at proliferation cases, there are a number of lessons – positive and negative – learnt. First, facts reported by the IAEA are essential for the international community in assessing the compliance and risks of possible clandestine activities. Second, the IAEA verification scheme is biting when it fully exercises its verification... more...
