9780198565406: The Nuclear Fuel Cycle: From Ore to Waste (Oxford Science Publications)

The subject of nuclear power is fraught with controversy, and it is often discussed with an inadequate understanding of the science behind today's reactor technology. This book covers the entire nuclear fuel cycle, from mining uranium ore to disposal of radioactive wastes. It is intended for a broad audience of nonspecialist readers. Basic principles are fully explained, and topics such as environmental radioactivity--both naturally occurring and man-made--and safety issues are explored. Anyone interested in the operation of today's nuclear power-generating plants will want to have a copy of this informative volume.

About the Author:

P. D. Wilson is at British Nuclear Fuels plc, Sellafield, Seascale.

Review:

`Different parts of the nuclear cycle are explained clearly and interestingly, with enough technical content to satisfy readers modestly familiar with scientific terminology but not the minute detail of concern only to experts.............The book achieves its purpose convincingly, to provide
an overall survey of the nuclear industry understandable to readers with some background in science.....................a readable and most interesting account of one important means of helping to satisfy the world's present and future energy needs'
Konrad B Krauskoff, Stanford University

The book achieves its purpose convincingly, to provide an overall survey of the nuclear industry understandable to readers with some background in science. Emphasis is on the industry as it exists in Great Britain, but enough material is included about the history of the subject and about
activities elsewhere to give a balanced picture of the industry on a worldwide basis. The authors have provided us with a readable and most interesting account of one important means of helping to satisfy the world's present and future energy needs.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nuclear power issues have long been controversial, and often discussed from an inadequate or mistaken understanding. This book is a factual description of the whole fuel cycle, with individual chapters on specific topics from uranium mining, through the manufacture and use of fuel, to recycled products, waste disposal and progress towards a cleared site. Basic principles, environmental radioactivity (both natural and artificial) and provisions for safety are also covered. The level is pitched at a general scientific readership not necessarily familiar with the concepts, and although the viewpoint is naturally pro-nuclear, the aim is to inform rather than persuade. Where options are disputed, as whether used fuel should br reprocessed or discarded directly, both are described. The account is mainly of current practices, with the reasons for them. A final chapter suggests possible changes in the near or more distant future. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780198565406
