Beschreibung

An introductory text for broad areas of nuclear reactor physics

Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering offers information on analysis, design, control, and operation of nuclear reactors. The author--a noted expert on the topic--explores the fundamentals and presents the mathematical formulations that are grounded in differential equations and linear algebra.

The book puts the focus on the use of neutron diffusion theory for the development of techniques for lattice physics and global reactor system analysis. The author also includes recent developments in numerical algorithms, including the Krylov subspace method, and the MATLAB software, including the Simulink toolbox, for efficient studies of steady-state and transient reactor configurations. In addition, nuclear fuel cycle and associated economics analysis are presented, together with the application of modern control theory to reactor operation. This important book:
* Provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental concepts of nuclear reactor physics and engineering
* Contains information on nuclear reactor kinetics and reactor design analysis
* Presents illustrative examples to enhance understanding
* Offers self-contained derivation of uid conservation equations

Written for undergraduate and graduate students in nuclear engineering and practicing engineers, Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering covers the fundamental concepts and tools of nuclear reactor physics and analysis.

AN INTRODUCTORY TEXT FOR BROAD AREAS OF NUCLEAR REACTOR PHYSICS

Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering offers information on analysis, design, control, and operation of nuclear reactors. The author explores the fundamentals and presents the mathematical formulations that are grounded in differential equations and linear algebra.

The book puts the focus on the use of neutron diffusion theory for the development of techniques for lattice physics and global reactor system analysis. The author also includes recent developments in numerical algorithms, including the Krylov subspace method, and the MATLAB® software, including the Simulink toolbox, for efficient studies of steady-state and transient reactor configurations. In addition, nuclear fuel cycle and associated economics analysis are presented, together with the application of modern control theory to reactor operation. This important book:

  • Provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental concepts of nuclear reactor physics and engineering
  • Contains information on nuclear reactor kinetics and reactor design analysis
  • Presents illustrative examples to enhance understanding
  • Offers self-contained derivation of fluid conservation equations

Written for undergraduate and graduate students in nuclear engineering and practicing engineers, Nuclear Reactor Physics and Engineering covers the fundamental concepts and tools of nuclear reactor physics and analysis.
