Fission gas behaviour in water reactor fuels : seminar proceedings, Cadarache, France, 26-29 September 2000 by Agence de l'OCDE pour l'énergie nucléaire( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During irradiation, nuclear fuel changes volume, primarily through swelling. This swelling is caused by the fission products and in particular by the volatile ones such as krypton and xenon, called fission gas. Fission gas behaviour needs to be reliably predicted in order to make better use of nuclear fuel, a factor which can help to achieve the economic competitiveness required by today's markets. These proceedings communicate the results of an international seminar which reviewed recent progress in the field of fission gas behaviour in light water reactor fuel and sought to improve the model

Nuclear Development Market Competition in the Nuclear Industry by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear power plants require a wide variety of specialised equipment, materials and services for their construction, operation and fuelling. There has been much consolidation and retrenchment in the nuclear industry since the 1980s, with the emergence of some large global nuclear companies. Electricity market liberalisation in many OECD countries has meanwhile placed nuclear plant operators under increased competitive pressure. These structural changes in both the producer and consumer sides of the nuclear industry have had implications for the level of competition in the nuclear engineering a
