  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
