Nuclear Reactors by Amir Zacarias MesquitaAmir Zacarias MesquitaOnline
| 350 Pages
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, decay heat in reactors and
spent-fuel pools, present status of two-phase flow studies in reactor
components, two-phase flow coolant behavior in boiling water reactors under
earthquake condition, simulation of nuclear reactors core, fuel life control in
light-water reactors, methods for monitoring and controlling power in nuclear
reactors, structural materials modeling for the next generation of nuclear
reactors, application of the results of finite group theory in reactor physics,
and the usability of vermiculite as a shield for nuclear reactor.
