Title:Nuclear Energy [electronic resource] : Principles, Practices, and Prospects
Author(s): David Bodansky
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The world faces serious difficulties in obtaining the energy that will be needed in coming decades for a growing population, especially given the problem of climate change caused by fossil fuel use. This book presents a view ofnuclear energy as an im portant carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weaponproliferation, and the cost of electric power . To provide background for these discussions, the book begins with chapters on the history of the development and use of nuclear energy, the health effects of ionizing radiation, and thebasic physics principles of reactor operation. The text has been rew ritten and substantially expanded for this edition, to reflect changes that have taken place in the eight years since the publication of the first edition and toprovide greater coverage of key topics. These include the Yucca Mountain repository plans, des igns for next-generation reactors, weapons proliferation and terrorism threats, the potential of alternatives to nuclear energy, andcontroversies about low-level radiation. Acclaim for the first edition: The book provides a superb background for scientist s and those in technical fields. It provides probably all the information that many people, includinggovernment policy makers, will ever need...[a] well-written and balanced book. This book is recommended for anyone who wants a broad technical background on nuclear energy. -American Journal of Physics
