This book presents a comprehensive review of studies in nuclear reactors technology from authors across the globe. Topics discussed in this compilation include: thermal hydraulic investigation of TRIGA type research reactor, materials testing reactor and high temperature gas-cooled reactor; the use of radiogenic lead recovered from ores as a coolant for fast reactors; decay heat in reactors.

Handbook of Generation IV Nuclear Reactors presents information on the current fleet of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) with water-cooled reactors (Generation III and III+) (96% of power reactors in the world) that have relatively low thermal efficiencies (within Nuclear Reactors book range of 32 36%) compared to those of modern advanced thermal power plants.

This is a list of books about nuclear issues. They are non-fiction books which relate to uranium mining, nuclear weapons and/or nuclear power.

A classic textbook for an introductory course in nuclear reactor analysis that introduces the nuclear engineering student Nuclear Reactors book the basic scientific principles of nuclear fission chain reactions and lays a foundation for the subsequent application of these principles to the Cited by: Reviews the design characteristics of integral pressurized water reactors and focuses on reactor core and fuel technologies, key reactor system components, instrumentation and control, human-system interfaces and safety; Considers the economics, financing, licensing, construction methods and hybrid energy systems of small modular reactors.

A nuclear reactor, formerly known as an atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain agnesescriva.comr reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in nuclear marine agnesescriva.com from nuclear fission is passed to a working fluid (water or gas), which in turn runs through steam turbines.

Nuclear reactor physics is the core discipline of nuclear engineering. Nuclear reactors now account for a significant portion of the electrical power generated worldwide, and new power reactors with improved fuel cycles are being developed. This is not the book to read if you want information on nuclear accidents.

However, if you're looking for an in-depth explanation of the basic reactor types, then your search Nuclear Reactors book over. Beginning with a clear explanation of how nuclear reactions work, radiation risks, and the future of nuclear energy, the book devotes the middle chapters to the 5/5.

“The USA and the Soviet Union each had the ability to annihilate the other. Therefore- in theory at least-neither of these growling superpowers would dare attack. @article{osti_, title = {Nuclear Reactors for Space Power (Rev.)}, author = {Corliss, William R}, abstractNote = {This is a revision of the pamphlet "SNAP Nuclear Space Reactors" published in This booklet describes the principles of nuclear-reactor space power plants and shows how they will contribute to the exploration and use of space.
