Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering
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.
