Fundamental Issues Critical to the Success of Nuclear Projects Book Review:

Fundamental Issues Critical to the Success of Nuclear Projects presents a complete analysis of the core considerations for those deploying nuclear power plants, managing existing plants and also for those developing and building new plants. It includes critical considerations such as cost-estimation, safety procedures and regulatory compliance, manpower optimization and development, and the application of innovative technologies, such as the use of robotics. Also editor of Managing Nuclear Projects (2013), Dr. Jas Devgun brings to this book a wealth of experience and an analytical approach to what actions are currently being taken and what other strategies can be adopted to more effectively and efficiently manage plants. This book will be of interest to all working and researching in the nuclear industry, including nuclear project managers, engineers and executives, as well as federal and state regulators, R&D managers and decommissioning and site clean-up mangers. Discusses innovative technologies being implemented in international nuclear plants to improve efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness in new, existing and decommissioned nuclear power plants Provides guidance on difficult cost estimation for nuclear projects, as well as safety procedures, legislation and regulatory compliance both inside and outside of the US Considers the future of nuclear energy and analyses the challenges ahead

Handbook on Nuclear Law Book Review:

This handbook is a practical aid to legislative drafting that brings together, for the first time, model texts of provisions covering all aspects of nuclear law in a consolidated form. Organised along the same lines as the Handbook on Nuclear Law, published by the IAEA in 2003, and containing updated material on new legal developments, this publication represents an important companion resource for the development of new or revised nuclear legislation, as well as for instruction in the fundamentals of nuclear law. It will be particularly useful for those Member States embarking on new or expanding existing nuclear programmes.

Earthquakes Book Review:

This book is devoted to diverse aspects of earthquake researches, especially to new achievements in seismicity that involves geosciences, assessment, and mitigation. Chapters contain advanced materials of detailed engineering investigations, which can help more clearly appreciate, predict, and manage different earthquake processes. Different research themes for diverse areas in the world are developed here, highlighting new methods of studies that lead to new results and models, which could be helpful for the earthquake risk. The presented and developed themes mainly concern wave's characterization and decomposition, recent seismic activity, assessment-mitigation, and engineering techniques. The book provides the state of the art on recent progress in earthquake engineering and management. The obtained results show a scientific progress that has an international scope and, consequently, should open perspectives to other still unresolved interesting aspects.

Nuclear Power Book Review:

The construction of nuclear power plants in the United States is stopping, as regulators, reactor manufacturers, and operators sort out a host of technical and institutional problems. This volume summarizes the status of nuclear power, analyzes the obstacles to resumption of construction of nuclear plants, and describes and evaluates the technological alternatives for safer, more economical reactors. Topics covered include Institutional issues--including regulatory practices at the federal and state levels, the growing trends toward greater competition in the generation of electricity, and nuclear and nonnuclear generation options. Critical evaluation of advanced reactors--covering attributes such as cost, construction time, safety, development status, and fuel cycles. Finally, three alternative federal research and development programs are presented.
