  • Small Modular Reactorsby Daniel T Ingersoll

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 99.95

    There is currently significant interest in the development of small modular reactors (SMRs) for the generation of both electricity and process heat. SMRs offer potential benefits in terms of better affordability and enhanced safety, and can also be sited more flexibly than traditional nuclear plants. Small Modular Reactors: Nuclear Power Fad or Future?... more...

  • The Ethics of Nuclear Energyby Behnam Taebi; Sabine Roeser

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 80.00

    This book brings together contributions by leading scholars that systematically cover the most important ethical issues concerning nuclear energy. more...

  • Risk Management of Non-Renewable Energy Systemsby Ajit Kumar Verma; Srividya Ajit; Hari Prasad Muruva

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book describes the basic concepts of risk and reliability with detailed descriptions of the different levels of probabilistic safety assessment of nuclear power plants (both internal and external). The book also maximizes readers insights into time dependent risk analysis through several case studies, whilst risk management with respect to non... more...

  • Electrical Energy Generation in Europeby Jorge Morales Pedraza

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 229.00

    The present book maximizes reader insights into the current and future roles to be played by different types of renewable energy sources and nuclear energy for the purpose of electricity generation in the European region as a whole and in a select group of European countries specifically. This book includes detailed analysis of the different types... more...

  • Thermodynamics In Nuclear Power Plant Systemsby Bahman Zohuri; Patrick McDaniel

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 249.00

    This book covers the fundamentals of thermodynamics required to understand electrical power generation systems, honing in on the application of these principles to nuclear reactor power systems. It includes all the necessary information regarding the fundamental laws to gain a complete understanding and apply them specifically to the challenges of... more...

  • Reprocessing and Recycling of Spent Nuclear Fuelby Robin Taylor

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 330.00

    Reprocessing and Recycling of Spent Nuclear Fuel presents an authoritative overview of spent fuel reprocessing, considering future prospects for advanced closed fuel cycles. Part One introduces the recycling and reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, reviewing past and current technologies, the possible implications of Generation IV nuclear reactors,... more...

  • Nuclear Energy and Liability in South Asiaby MP Ram Mohan

    Springer India 2015; US$ 54.99

    This book advocates pursuing a regional approach to nuclear risk framework, which it argues is more promising in the current scenario than the non-achievable global regime. In the development of international legislation on liability, the nuclear energy sector represents an alternative approach to a transboundary liability regime. Building on this... more...

  • Dimensional Analysis and Self-Similarity Methods for Engineers and Scientistsby Bahman Zohuri

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 149.00

    This ground-breaking reference provides an overview of key concepts in dimensional analysis, and then pushes well beyond traditional applications in fluid mechanics to demonstrate how powerful this tool can be in solving complex problems across many diverse fields. Of particular interest is the book?s coverage of  dimensional analysis and self-similarity... more...
