Comprised of six chapters, this e-book opens with an outline of equipment used to guage nuclear protection, in addition to neutron kinetics, thermal and suggestions results, and fault tree research. The reader is then brought to attainable approach disturbances when it comes to 3 unique speedy reactor structures: liquid-metal-cooled quick breeder reactors, gas-cooled quickly breeder reactors, and steam-cooled speedy breeder reactors. the subsequent bankruptcy seems to be at protection standards which are set to outline the layout of a secure plant, including the security beneficial properties that would be integrated. the remainder chapters concentrate on the actual difficulties of a sodium-cooled layout; containment construction and first circuit and vessel containment; and licensing of the plant.
This monograph is meant for graduates and undergraduates in nuclear engineering who're attending classes in reactor safety.
