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.
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.
