EDF is one of the major companies in the world nuclear field. He has taken part, for the last 30 years, in the development of the calculation scheme of the French nuclear reactors/5(3). I have read many books about Chernobyl, from dry scientific texts to often silly fictional accounts of its aftermath, yet this young author has done the best job of all of them, offering a simple-yet-accurate description of how Chernobyl's RBMK reactors worked and, ultimately, how one of them critically failed/5().

Description. This is the 35th edition of Reference Data Series No.2, which presents the most recent reactor data available to the IAEA. It contains summarized information as of the end of on power reactors operating, under construction and shut down as well as performance data on reactors operating in the IAEA Member States.

Early exploration nuclear reactors designed by Argonne National Laboratory: CP-1, the first controlled and self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction; CP-2, a natural uranium, graphite-moderated reactor built by disassembling, moving, and rebuilding CP-1 and installing additional graphite moderator; and CP-3, the world's first heavy-water-moderated nuclear reactor.

Overview of Nuclear Reactor Systems and Fundamentals “Someday man will harness the rise and fall of the tides, imprison the power of the sun, and release atomic power.” —Thomas Alva Edison Introduction There is no doubt that energy has been driving and will drive the technological prog-ress of the human civilization.

This is a list of operational and decommissioned nuclear reactors of the Boiling Water Reactor-design, commonly used for generating electrical power in nuclear power plants.

Commercial or half commercial Boiling Water Reactors. Chicago Pile-1 (CP-1) was the world's first nuclear reactor. CP-1 was built on a rackets court, under the abandoned west stands of the original Alonzo Stagg Field stadium, at the University of Chicago.

The first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was initiated in CP-1 on December 2, Nuclear Power Reactors in the World is an annual publication that presents the most recent data pertaining to nuclear power reactors in IAEA Member States.

This thirty-third edition of Reference Data Series No. 2 provides a detailed comparison of various statistics through 31 December The tables and figures contain the following information.

In an excerpt from her new book, "Countdown to Zero Day," WIRED's Kim Zetter describes the dark path the world's first digital weapon took to reach its target in Iran.

This book was an amazing reference. It includes a really broad range of all the most important characteristics in the design of fast spectrum reactors.

The largest portion of the book focuses on reactor physics and fuel design, but there is also a relatively thorough discussion of core design, plant design, and safety.4/5(2). A nuclear reactor coolant — usually water but sometimes a gas or a liquid metal (like liquid sodium) or molten salt — is circulated past the reactor core to absorb the heat that it generates.

The heat is carried away from the reactor and is then used to generate steam. This is a list of books about nuclear are non-fiction books which relate to uranium mining, nuclear weapons and/or nuclear power.

The book starts from a basic undergraduate background in physics and engineering, in developing the design guidelines of recent years. It shows that there has been steady research and improvements in reactors.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Nuclear reactor - Nuclear reactor - Research reactors: These are the most common type of research reactor. Water-cooled, plate-fuel reactors use enriched uranium fuel in plate assemblies (see above Fuel types) and are cooled and moderated with water.

They operate over a wide range of thermal power levels, from a few kilowatts to hundreds of megawatts. Nuclear Power Reactorsin the World is an annual publication that presents the most recent data pertaining to reactor units in IAEA Member States.
