Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering provides an ideal introduction to the subject. The first half of the text reviews the important results of "modern" physics and introduces the fundamentals of nuclear science. The second half introduces the theory of nuclear reactors and its application in electrical power production and propulsion. It also surveys many other applications of nuclear technology encountered in space research, industry, and medicine. Each chapter contains extensive problem sets, and appendices at the end of the text furnish large amounts of practical data that enable students to perform a wealth of calculations.

Among the myriad concepts, principles, and applications addressed in this text, Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering

  • Describes sources of radiation, radiation interactions, and the results of such interactions
  • Summarizes developments in the creation of atomic and nuclear models
  • Develops the kinematics and energetics of nuclear reactions and radioactivity
  • Identifies and assesses biological risks associated with ionizing radiation
  • Presents the theory of nuclear reactors and their dynamic behavior
  • Discusses the design and characteristics of modern nuclear power reactors
  • Summarizes the nuclear fuel cycle and radioactive waste management
  • Describes methods for directly converting nuclear energy into electricity
  • Presents an overview of nuclear propulsion for ships and space crafts
  • Explores the use of nuclear techniques in medical therapy and diagnosis
  • Covers basic concepts in theory of special relativity, wave-particle duality, and quantum mechanics

    Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering builds the background students embarking on the study of nuclear engineering and technology need to understand and quantify nuclear phenomena and to move forward into higher-level studies.
