Sustainable and Safe Nuclear Fission Energy Technology and Safety of Fast and Thermal Nuclear Reactors / [electronic resource] : by Günter Kessler. - Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. - XXVI, 466 p. online resource. - Power Systems, 1612-1287 . - Power Systems, .

Nuclear reactors operating in the world by 2010 -- Reactor physics needed for understanding of fission reactors -- Nuclear fuel supply -- Uranium enrichment -- Fission reactors with thermal neutron spectrum -- Breeder reactors with fast neutron spectrum.

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.
