Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Materials in a nuclear environment are exposed to extreme conditions of radiation, temperature and/or corrosion, and in many cases the combination of these makes the material behavior very different from conventional materials. This is evident for the four major technological challenges the nuclear technology domain is facing currently:

(i) long-term operation of existing Generation II nuclear power plants,

(ii) the design of the next generation reactors (Generation IV),

(iii) the construction of the ITER fusion reactor in Cadarache (France),

(iv) and the intermediate and final disposal of nuclear waste.

In order to address these challenges, engineers and designers need to know the properties of a wide variety of materials under these conditions and to understand the underlying processes affecting changes in their behavior, in order to assess their performance and to determine the limits of operation.

Key Features

  • Critically reviews the major classes and functions of materials, supporting the selection, assessment, validation and engineering of materials in extreme nuclear environments
  • Comprehensive resource for up-to-date and authoritative information which is not always available elsewhere, even in journals
  • Provides an in-depth treatment of materials modeling and simulation, with a specific focus on nuclear issues
  • Serves as an excellent entry point for students and researchers new to the field
  • Readership
  • Researchers, teachers and students of all aspects of nuclear materials, materials science, and energy engineering. Industry professionals and engineers including government and corporate employees.
