Nuclear reactor physics is concerned with the study of chain reactions in nuclear reactors and their application for producing energy in a controlled fission reaction. The initiation and control of a self-sustained nuclear chain reaction occurs in a nuclear reactor. The key components in a nuclear power plant can be grouped under the classes of reactor assembly, steam generation, power generation, fuel handling, safety systems and controls. The reactor assembly consists of nuclear fuel, moderator, neutron source, reactor core, coolant

Elementary Reactor Physics details the underlying principles that govern the physical processes taking place in a nuclear reactor core. The title tackles the various variables that contribute to the kinetic behavior of a nuclear reactor. The text first introduces the basic concepts of nuclear reactor kinetics, and then proceeds to tackling neutron and neutron cross-sections. Next, the selection covers neutron diffusion and the slowing down of neutrons. The text also covers both homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions, along with the effects

Have you ever wondered how a nuclear power station works? This lively book will answer that question. It’ll take you on a journey from the science behind nuclear reactors, through their start-up, operation and shutdown. Along the way it covers a bit of the engineering, reactor history, different kinds of reactors and what can go wrong with them. Much of this is seen from the viewpoint of a trainee operator on a Pressurised Water Reactor - the most common

Small modular reactors (SMRs) are an advanced, safe type of nuclear reactor technology that are suitable for small and medium sized applications including both power and heat generation. In particular, their use as individual units or in combination to scale-up capacity offer benefits in terms of siting, installation, operation, lifecycle and economics in comparison to the development of larger nuclear plant for centralised electricity power grids. Interest has increased in the research and development of SMRs for both developing countries
