Download or read online book entitled Fundamentals of Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation, was written by Yasuo Koizumi and published by Elsevier in pdf, epub and kindle format. This book was released on 28 January 2021 with total pages 320. Fundamentals of Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation is the first volume in the JSME Series in Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation. The first part of this volume provides a thorough and complete reference on the history of thermal and nuclear power generation, which has informed and sculpted today’s industry. It prepares readers for subsequent publications in the series that address more advanced topics and will particularly benefit early career researchers and those approaching the industry from an alternative discipline. Modern thermal and nuclear power generation systems and technologies are then explored, including clear analysis on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, thermal engineering, combustion engineering, and nuclear physics. The impact of these technologies on society is considered throughout, as well as supply issues, accident risk analysis, and important emission and sustainability considerations. This book is an invaluable resource for researchers and professional engineers in nuclear and thermal energy engineering, and postgraduate and undergraduate students in power generation, especially nuclear and thermal. Written by experts from the leaders and pioneers in thermal and nuclear power engineering research at the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers and draws upon their combined wealth of knowledge and experience Includes real examples and case studies from Japan and other key regions such as the United States and Europe to provide a deeper learning opportunity Considers societal impact and sustainability concerns and goals throughout
