  • Nuclear Decommissioningby M Laraia

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 355.00

    Once a nuclear installation has reached the end of its safe and economical operational lifetime, the need for its decommissioning arises. Different strategies can be employed for nuclear decommissioning, based on the evaluation of particular hazards and their attendant risks, as well as on the analysis of costs of clean-up and waste management. This... more...

  • Nuclear Fuel Cycle Science and Engineeringby Ian Crossland

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 300.00

    The nuclear fuel cycle is characterised by the wide range of scientific disciplines and technologies it employs. The development of ever more integrated processes across the many stages of the nuclear fuel cycle therefore confronts plant manufacturers and operators with formidable challenges. Nuclear fuel cycle science and engineering describes both... more...

  • Nuclear Corrosion Science and Engineeringby Damien Feron

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 415.00

    Corrosion of nuclear materials, i.e. the interaction between these materials and their environments, is a major issue for plant safety as well as for operation and economic competitiveness. Understanding these corrosion mechanisms, the systems and materials they affect, and the methods to accurately measure their incidence is of critical importance... more...

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

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 415.00

    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...

  • Power Plant Life Management and Performance Improvementby John E Oakey

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 315.00

    Coal- and gas-based power plants currently supply the largest proportion of the world?s power generation capacity, and are required to operate to increasingly stringent environmental standards. Higher temperature combustion is therefore being adopted to improve plant efficiency and to maintain net power output given the energy penalty that integration... more...

  • Pressure Vesselsby Carl T. F. Ross

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 255.00

    The choice of structural design and material is essential in preventing the external walls of a vessel from buckling under pressure. In this revised second edition of Pressure vessels, Carl Ross reviews the problem and uses both theoretical and practical examples to show how it can be solved for different structures. The second edition opens with... more...

  • Advanced Separation Techniques for Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing and Radioactive Waste Treatmentby Kenneth L Nash; Gregg J Lumetta

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 265.00

    Advanced separations technology is key to closing the nuclear fuel cycle and relieving future generations from the burden of radioactive waste produced by the nuclear power industry. Nuclear fuel reprocessing techniques not only allow for recycling of useful fuel components for further power generation, but by also separating out the actinides, lanthanides... more...

  • Understanding and Mitigating Ageing in Nuclear Power Plantsby Philip G Tipping

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 370.00

    Plant life management (PLiM) is a methodology focussed on the safety-first management of nuclear power plants over their entire lifetime. It incorporates and builds upon the usual periodic safety reviews and licence renewals as part of an overall framework designed to assist plant operators and regulators in assessing the operating conditions of a... more...

  • Advanced Power Plant Materials, Design and Technologyby Dermot Roddy

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 285.00

    Fossil-fuel power plants account for the majority of worldwide power generation. Increasing global energy demands, coupled with issues of ageing and inefficient power plants, have led to new power plant construction programmes. As cheaper fossil fuel resources are exhausted and emissions criteria are tightened, utilities are turning to power plants... more...

  • Safety Factor Profile Control in a Tokamakby Federico Bribiesca Argomedo; Emmanuel Witrant; Christophe Prieur

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 54.99

    This book covers construction of an input-to-state-stability-Lyapunov function for the infinite-dimensional system that provides a common base for the development of robustness results, used as a control-Lyapunov function in a Tokamak. more...
