Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering provides an ideal introduction to the subject. The first half of the text reviews the important results of "modern" physics and introduces the fundamentals of nuclear science. The second half introduces the theory of nuclear reactors and its application in electrical power production and propulsion. It also surveys many other applications of nuclear technology encountered in space research, industry, and medicine. Each chapter contains extensive problem sets, and appendices at the end of the text furnish large amounts of practical data that enable students to perform a wealth of calculations. Among the myriad concepts, principles, and applications addressed in this text, Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering Describes sources of radiation, radiation interactions, and the results of such interactions Summarizes developments in the creation of atomic and nuclear models Develops the kinematics and energetics of nuclear reactions and radioactivity Identifies and assesses biological risks associated with ionizing radiation Presents the theory of nuclear reactors and their dynamic behavior Discusses the design and characteristics of modern nuclear power reactors Summarizes the nuclear fuel cycle and radioactive waste management Describes methods for directly converting nuclear energy into electricity Presents an overview of nuclear propulsion for ships and space crafts Explores the use of nuclear techniques in medical therapy and diagnosis Covers basic concepts in theory of special relativity, wave-particle duality, and quantum mechanics Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering builds the background students embarking on the study of nuclear engineering and technology need to understand and quantify nuclear phenomena and to move forward into higher-level studies.

This textbook provides a thoroughly modern alternative to other introductory Nuclear Engineering textbooks that have not been updated significantly over the last 20 years. Printed in full color, this textbook combines an accessible, student-friendly overview of nuclear physics, nuclear reactor design, thermal-hydraulic systems, fuel cycles, safety, and computational methods. To convey the evolution of nuclear science and engineering, historical and biographical features are interwoven throughout the text, and brought to life through portraits, photographs, and other illustrations. Nuclear reactor designs, including the most recent examples, are analyzed and compared in detail, and the role of internet tools in analysis and design is explored. The text follows a well-structured pedagogical approach, based on careful, consistent explanation and topic development, which is supported by numerous color images, key equations, worked examples, lists of key web links for research, short answer questions, and a wealth of chapter problems. Extensive tables are included for reference, and a complete Solutions Manual and .pdf slides of all figures are available to qualified instructors who adopt the text.

With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.
