About this book

This book introduces advanced methods of computational and information systems allowing readers to better understand the state-of-the-art design and implementation technology needed to maintain and enhance the safe operation of nuclear power plants. The subjects dealt with in the book are (i) Full digital instrumentation and control systems and human–machine interface technologies (ii) Risk  monitoring methods for large and  complex  plants (iii) Condition monitors for plant components (iv) Virtual and augmented reality for nuclear power plants and (v) Software reliability verification and validation for nuclear power plants. The target readers of this book are Ph.D. students, researchers and engineers in the field of nuclear power engineering.

 

About the authors

Editor: Hidekazu Yoshikawa, Professor Emeritus, Kyoto University. Collaborations as the member of technical program committee, session chairs, etc. to the international conferences related with human-machine system researches: For the area of nuclear I&C and HMIT, he regularly attended ANS Topical Meeting series NPIC & HMIT (Penn State, Albuquerque, Knoxville, Las Vegas), ASME organized ICONE conference series (Brussels and Xi’an), and Korean Nuclear Society organized ISOFIC series (Chejudo and Taejon).

He also served as Technical Program Chair of NUTHOS-6 in 2004 in Nara, Japan. (NUTHOS series conference is related to reactor thermal-hydraulics and nuclear power plant operation).
