Product Description


From the reviews:

“Kessler, a reactor physics and safety specialist based in Germany, thoroughly covers the subject of nuclear fission energy, including up-to-date developments worldwide, the fuel supply chain, the physics of different types of reactors, and a detailed discussion on safety with a major focus on light water reactors. … This comprehensive book, part of Springer’s ‘Power Systems’ series, is useful to advanced students, researchers, and professionals in nuclear energy. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (M. Alam, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), August, 2013)

From the Back Cover

Unlike existing books of nuclear reactor physics, nuclear engineering and nuclear chemical engineering this book covers a complete description and evaluation of nuclear fission power generation. It covers the whole nuclear fuel cycle, from the extraction of natural uranium from ore mines, uranium conversion and enrichment up to the fabrication of fuel elements for the cores of various types of fission reactors. This is followed by the description of the different fuel cycle options and the final storage in nuclear waste repositories.

In addition the release of radioactivity under normal and possible accidental conditions is given for all parts of the nuclear fuel cycle and especially for the different fission reactor types.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
well written, well presented, nice drawings, pictures, designs reference. Definitively not a textbook, more a book to grab onto to try to refresh your memory before digging into more substantial materials. One of the few books available which look at ADS (albeit very quickly)
