Fundamentals of CANDU Reactor Physics
Nuclear Engineering and Technology for the 21st Century - Monograph Series
Jovica Riznic, Series Editor
With more than 75 years of combined working experience in the area of reactor physics and safety, the intention of the authors of this monograph is to provide a practical book on reactor physics, particularly for the safe operation of aged CANDU reactors, with minimal mathematics or equations. The book gives a glimpse of first principles and their engineering application in reactor physics, for those who are interested in or are working in the Canadian nuclear industry. The book is also ideal as a reference for physicists, operators, regulatory staff, and for those who need to interact with reactor physicists at CANDU sites, nuclear laboratories, institutes, universities, or engineering companies.
This book assumes prior knowledge of nuclear physics offered at the secondary level. As very few equations appear in the monograph, it is not considered suitable for specialists whose focus is only on calculations or on the development of software on reactor physics. Such readers should refer to the books listed in the bibliography at the end of the monograph.
