Nuclear Reactor Engineering
Book Summary:

The present book is felt necessary as no single book covers the whole syllabus for Nuclear Engineering in the Indian Universities. Most of the books available do not give a complete picture of India's Nuclear Programme. There is utmost need to expose the students to the total gamut of activities of the Nuclear Power Plant from mining to waste disposal, besides bringing out the benefits and biological effects of radiation. The Book starts with the need or motivation for Nuclear Energy, and goes on to give basic concepts of reactor physics necessary to understand the operation of nuclear reactors.

Audience of the Book :
This book Useful for Engineering students.
Key Features:
  • Emphasis is given to understanding the concepts.
  • The book exposes the student to the various facets of nuclear fuel cycle right from mining to waste disposal.
  • It introduces the student to the heat transfer and fluid flow processes in different types of reactors viz. Pressurized Water Reactor, Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor, Boiling Water Reactor, Gas Cooled Reactors and Fast Reactors besides aspects of nuclear safety.
  • To help the student in better understanding Figures and Tables have been provided at various places in the text.
