  • Physics of Gas-Liquid Flowsby Thomas J. Hanratty

    Cambridge University Press 2013; US$ 94.00

    A unified theory of multiphase flows, providing tools for practical applications. more...

  • Probabilistic Safety Assessment for Optimum Nuclear Power Plant Life Management (PLiM)by Gennadij V Arkadov; Alexander F Getman; Andrei 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...

  • Managing Nuclear Projectsby Jas Devgun

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 230.00

    In addition to the nuclear power industry, the nuclear field has extensive projects and activities in the areas of research reactors, medical isotope production, decommissioning, and remediation of contaminated sites. Managing nuclear projects focuses on the management aspects of nuclear projects in a wide range of areas with emphasis on process, requirements,... more...

  • Materials Ageing and Degradation in Light Water Reactorsby K L Murty

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 250.00

    Light water reactors (LWRs) are the predominant class of nuclear power reactors in operation today; however, ageing and degradation can influence both their performance and lifetime. Knowledge of these factors is therefore critical to safe, continuous operation. Materials ageing and degradation in light water reactors provides a comprehensive guide... more...

  • Nuclear Decommissioningby Michele 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 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...

  • 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...
