  • Fills the need for an up-to-date condensed reference on nuclear engineering since 1958
  • Includes an introduction to new reactor types, such as Generation III, III+ and IV
  • Describes the essential role nuclear energy plays in the future to ensure an adequate supply of non-polluting sustainable energy
  • Presents information accessible at multiple technical levels (students, professionals, researchers)

The Handbook of Nuclear Engineering is an authoritative compilation of information regarding methods and data used in all phases of nuclear engineering. Addressing nuclear engineers and scientists at all academic levels, this five volume set provides the latest findings in nuclear data and experimental techniques, reactor physics, kinetics, dynamics and control. Readers will also find a detailed description of data assimilation, model validation and calibration, sensitivity and uncertainty analysis, fuel management and cycles, nuclear reactor types and radiation shielding. A discussion of radioactive waste disposal, safeguards and non-proliferation, and fuel processing with partitioning and transmutation is also included.

As nuclear technology becomes an important resource of non-polluting sustainable energy in the future, The Handbook of Nuclear Engineering is an excellent reference for practicing engineers, researchers and professionals.
