  • Cementitious Materials for Nuclear Waste Immobilizationby Rehab O. Abdel Rahman; Ravil Z. Rakhimov; Nailia R. Rakhimova; Michael I. Ojovan

    Wiley 2014; US$ 170.00 US$ 153.00

    Cementitious materials are an essential part in any radioactive waste disposal facility. Conditioning processes such as cementation are used to convert waste into a stable solid form that is insoluble and will prevent dispersion to the surrounding environment. It is incredibly important to understand the long-term behavior of these materials. This... more...

  • Nuclear Power: A Reference Handbook, 2nd Editionby Harry Henderson

    ABC-CLIO 2014; US$ 58.00

    In the 21st century, nuclear power has been identified as a viable alternative to traditional energy sources to stem global climate change, and condemned as risky to human health and environmentally irresponsible. Do the advantages of nuclear energy outweigh the risks, especially in light of the meltdown at the Fukushima plant in 2011? This guide... more...
