Who Needs Nuclear Power

Who Needs Nuclear Power

Author: Chris (Anastasi London Ltd, UK) Anastasi Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/10/2020

Who Needs Nuclear Power challenges conventional thinking about the role of civil nuclear power in a rapidly changing energy context, where new energy carriers are penetrating markets around the world. Against the backdrop of a global energy transition and the defining issue of Climate Change, Chris Anastasi assesses new nuclear build in a fast-moving sector in which new technologies and practices are rapidly emerging. He considers various countries at different stages of nuclear industry development, and discusses their political, legal and technical institutions that provide the framework for both existing nuclear facilities and new build, as well as a country's technical capability. He also highlights the critical issue of nuclear safety culture, exploring how organisations go about instilling it and maintaining it in their operations and encouraging it in their supply chains; the critical role played by independent regulators and international institutions in ensuring the integrity of the industry is also highlighted. This book provides a balanced and holistic view of nuclear power for both an expert and non-expert audience, and a realistic assessment of the potential for this technology over the critical period to 2050 and beyond.

Human Factors in the Nuclear Industry

Human Factors in the Nuclear Industry

Human Factors in the Nuclear Industry: Supporting Human Performance for Improved Safety presents the latest research and studies of human factors in the nuclear industry. It models and highlights scientific and technological foundations before providing practical examples of applications within the nuclear facility of human performance at an individual, group, organization, and system level. Editors Dr. Teperi and Dr. Gotcheva supply concrete models, tools and techniques based on research to provide the reader with knowledge of how to facilitate and support human performance in this dynamic and fast moving safety critical field. Models and case studies are provided to add practical benefits for the reader to apply to their own projects, including user friendly state-of-the-art equipment, fluent work processes for information flow, functional control room resource management, and scope for competence and learning in the work place. This book will benefit nuclear researchers, safety experts, human factors professionals and power plant operators, as well as those with an interest in human factors outside of the nuclear field.

THE DECOMMISSIONING HANDBOOK (802248)

THE DECOMMISSIONING HANDBOOK (802248)

Author: Anibal L. Taboas, A. Alan Moghissi, Thomas S. LaGuardia Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/08/2020

This comprehensive and authoritative volume will serve as a complete introduction to those new to the field, as well as an up-to-date desk reference on regulations and resources for experienced practitioners. The handbook will provide a forum building a network of consistent approaches, practices, and results. Covering both NRC and DOE approaches, this book applies not only to decommissioning existing nuclear facilities, but by crossing the traditional lines between operations and reuse, this will also allow us to rethink the construction of new ones. The expert team of authors provides valuable lessons from their collective experiences in nuclear decommissioning. They represent areas pertaining to policy, engineering, and science. The handbook focuses primarily on time-tested and proven technologies.

Quantitative and Spatial Evaluations of Undiscovered Uranium Resources

Quantitative and Spatial Evaluations of Undiscovered Uranium Resources

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/08/2020

This publication provides an overview on aspects of the uranium production cycle including evaluating the global uranium supply/demand situation. It presents insights on techniques for analysis of undiscovered resources for mineral commodities, which has formed part of a robust statistical procedure in the last 20 years, but has never been systematically applied to uranium. For this publication, experts have carried out case studies on speculative or undiscovered uranium resource potential, systematically applying spatial assessment techniques often with non-spatial quantitative techniques. This publication is the result of the work contributed by those experts over the period 2014-2016 and provides the tools for Member States to investigate and evaluate undiscovered uranium resources and deposits.

International Safeguards in the Design of Reprocessing Plants

International Safeguards in the Design of Reprocessing Plants

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/08/2020

This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of reprocessing plants, facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.

International Safeguards in the Design of Enrichment Plants

International Safeguards in the Design of Enrichment Plants

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/08/2020

This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design and construction of commercial uranium enrichment plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of enrichments plants facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.

Modern Instrumentation and Control for Nuclear Power Plants

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/08/2020

This report replaces Technical Reports Series No. 239, Nuclear Power Plant Instrumentation and Control: A Guidebook (1984), in particular by changing the emphasis from guidance to summarizing operating experience and discussing new technologies. It provides an up to date overview of nuclear power plant instrumentation and control technology and the background against which such systems are implemented. It is directed to meet the needs of instrumentation and control engineers, but also of nuclear power plant designers and regulators.
