This note will
focus on understanding the complete nuclear reactor system including the balance
of plant, support systems and resulting interdependencies affecting the overall
safety of the plant and regulatory oversight. Topics covered includes: Reactor
kinetics and control, Fuel depletion and related effects, Reactor energy
removal, Design issues, Power cycles for nuclear plants, Boiling water reactors,
Safety culture, Current regulatory safety issues.
Nuclear Physics and Reactor Theory Handbook was developed to assist nuclear
facility operating contractors in providing operators, maintenance personnel,
and the technical staff with the necessary. Topics covered includes: Atomic
Nature Of Matter, Chart Of The Nuclides, Mass Defect And Binding Energy, Modes
Of Radioactive Decay, Radioactivity, Neutron Interactions, Energy Release From
Fission, Interaction Of Radiation With Matter.
The purpose of
this guide is to describe in complete detail a FORTRAN code named Program SCAT 4
written by the UCLA group in order to analyze elastic scattering of various
particle. Topics covered includes: Mathematical Description, Program
Description, Description of Input Data, Symbolic Listing of the Program.
A. Melkanoff, David S. Saxon, John S. Nodvik and David G. Cantor
book gives an elementary but coherent account of that branch of physics involved
in the study and design of nuclear reactors at a standard presentation judged to
be suitable for advanced undergraduate students.
