The effects of nuclear weapons by United States( Book )

95 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 2,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When 'The Effects of Atomic Weapons' was published in 1950, the explosive energy yields of the fission bombs available at that time were equivalent to some thousands of tons (i.e., kilotons) of TNT. With the development of thermonuclear (fusion) weapons, having energy yields in the range of millions of tons (i.e., megatons) of TNT, a new presentation, entitled 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, ' was issued in 1957. A completely revised edition was published in 1962 and this was reprinted with a few changes early in 1964. Since the last version of 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons' was prepared, much new information has become available concerning nuclear weapons effects. This has come in part from the series of atmospheric tests, including several at very high altitudes, conducted in the Pacific Ocean area in 1962. In addition, laboratory studies, theoretical calculations, and computer simulations have provided a better understanding of the various effects. Within the limits imposed by security requirements, the new information has been incorporated in the present edition. In particular, attention may be called to a new chapter on the electromagnetic pulse. The material is arranged in a manner that should permit the general reader to obtain a good understanding of the various topics without having to cope with the more technical details. Most chapters are thus in two parts: the first part is written at a fairly low technical level whereas the second treats some of the more technical and mathematical aspects. The presentation allows the reader to omit any or all of the latter sections without loss of continuity."--Preface
Principles of nuclear reactor engineering by Samuel Glasstone( Book )

130 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic reference combines broad, yet in-depth coverage of nuclear engineering principles with practical descriptions of their application in the design and operation of nuclear power plants. Published in a two-volume format to accommodate readers' specific interests, the first volume concentrates on the fundamentals of nuclear engineering, while the second explores applications and more advanced topics. In the second volume, Alexander Sesonske draws on his extensive experience in nuclear engineering to investigate state-of-the-art approaches to reactor systems, including computer analysis, assisting the reader in exploiting the potential of information technology in nuclear engineering. We explore energy transport and fuel management and their roles in cost-effective plant design and operation. Sesonske discusses the environmental, health, and safety concerns that are crucial to the continued success and expansion of nuclear power, illustrating risk analysis methods that facilitate reliable assessment and control of hazards. The book also details current and potential innovations in plant design, examining challenges likely to be faced by the nuclear power industry in meeting future energy demands. investigating topics such as reactor systems, cost-effective fuel management, environmental issues, and the design of future plants
