The Nuclear Fuel Cycle has been extensively revised since the previous edition published in 1999, and it includes a whole new chapter on nuclear safeguards. The book covers all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle — from cradle to grave. Topics include the available nuclear fuel resources (uranium and thorium), extraction of the metals from the ore, fabrication of nuclear fuel, use of the fuel for power generation, and management and disposal of used fuel and radioactive wastes. Other topics discussed are basic reactor physics, in-core and out-of-core fuel management, possible fuel cycles, nuclear power economics, and nuclear safeguards. The various methods of generating electricity are also described and compared, concentrating on their environmental effects.
CONTE 2013: Conference on Nuclear Training and Education contains 98 summaries. This year’s conference focus brought together an international forum of participants to discuss the issues facing nuclear energy training and education and the future of the nuclear industry. Topics include the developing workforce, newcomer countries, nuclear uniform curriculum program, personnel training and education, engineering education, leadership development, systematic approach to training, simulator changes in the industry, and the impact of Fukushima on the industry.
