  • 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...

  • Why We Need Nuclear Powerby Michael H. Fox

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    An argument for nuclear power as an environmentally sound option, based on real science and written by a radiation biologist. A complete scientific analysis of nuclear power. more...

  • Energieby Bernd Diekmann; Eberhard Rosenthal

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 33.11

    In dem vorliegenden Band wird naturwissenschaftlich-physikalische Hintergrundinformation zum Thema Energie bereitgestellt, um dem Leser objektive Bewertungskriterien für die global hochaktuelle Diskussion der Zukunft unserer Energieversorgung an die Hand zu geben. Insbesondere ist es ein zentrales Anliegen, dem Leser eine Bilanzierung aller Quellen... more...

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

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 51.36

    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...

  • Idaho Fallsby William McKeown

    ECW Press 2003; US$ 10.95

    Was the world's first fatal nuclear accident — the 1961 explosion of a SL-1 military test reactor in Idaho — the result of a crime of passion? Was the disaster promptly covered up to protect the burgeoning nuclear industry? Idaho Falls documents one of America's best-kept secrets and investigates the question of conspiracy. more...

  • Nuclear Data Needs for Generation IV Nuclear Energy Systemsby Peter Rullhusen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 145.00 US$ 131.95

    This volume presents recent progress in the improvement of the nuclear database needed for the development of Generation IV nuclear energy systems. The Generation IV International Forum (GIF) identified six advanced concepts for sustainable nuclear energy production at competitive prices and with advanced safety, with special attention to nuclear non-proliferation... more...

  • Structural Alloys for Power Plantsby A. Shirzadi; S. Jackson

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 250.00

    Current fleets of conventional and nuclear power plants face increasing hostile environmental conditions due to increasingly high temperature operation for improved capacity and efficiency, and the need for long term service. Additional challenges are presented by the requirement to cycle plants to meet peak-load operation. This book presents a comprehensive... more...
