  • Written by one of the world-leading specialists in reactor physics and safety
  • Most comprehensive book on nuclear fission technology, new safety concepts and waste disposal
  • Complete description and evaluation of nuclear fission power generation
  • Covers the whole nuclear fuel cycle, from the extraction of natural uranium, uranium conversion and enrichment up to the fabrication of fuel elements
  • Description of the different fuel cycle options
  • Presents viable solutions for safe and long-term storage of nuclear waste
  • Recently developed new safety concepts for fission reactors

Unlike existing books of nuclear reactor physics, nuclear engineering and nuclear chemical engineering this book covers a complete description and evaluation of nuclear fission power generation. It covers the whole nuclear fuel cycle, from the extraction of natural uranium from ore mines, uranium conversion and enrichment up to the fabrication of fuel elements for the cores of various types of fission reactors. This is followed by the description of the different fuel cycle options and the final storage in nuclear waste repositories.

In addition the release of radioactivity under normal and possible accidental conditions is given for all parts of the nuclear fuel cycle and especially for the different fission reactor types.
