This edition builds on earlier traditions in providing broad subject-area coverage, application of theory to practical aspects of commercial nuclear power, and use of instructional objectives. Like the first edition, it focuses on what distinguishes nuclear engineering from the other engineering disciplines. However, this edition includes reorganization and overall update of descriptions of reactor designs and fuel-cycle steps, and more emphasis on reactor safety, especially related to technical and management lessons learned from the TMI-2 and Chernobyl - 4 accidents.

Table of Contents

Power reactor hydraulic configurations; boundary conditions for the hydraulic problems; problems treated in this book, flow in single channels; flow in multiple heat channels connected only at plena; flow in interconnected multiple heated channels; approaches for reactor analysis; lumped and distributed parameter solution approaches; problems.
