Über dieses Buch

This book highlights a comprehensive and detailed introduction to the fundamental principles related to nuclear engineering. As one of the most popular choices of future energy, nuclear energy is of increasing demand globally. Due to the complexity of nuclear engineering, its research and development as well as safe operation of its facility requires a wide scope of knowledge, ranging from basic disciplines such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics to applied subjects such as reactor theory and radiation protection. The book covers all necessary knowledge in an illustrative and readable style, with a sufficient amount of examples and exercises. It is an easy-to-read textbook for graduate students in nuclear engineering and a valuable handbook for nuclear facility operators, maintenance personnel and technical staff.

Chapter 1. Fundamentals of Mathematics and Physics

Abstract
In engineering field, some engineering problems can be solved by using arithmetic and algebra.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 2. Thermodynamics

Abstract
Thermodynamics is a section of physics, which studies the dynamic behavior, and law of movement of microscopic molecules using macroscopic ways. Thermodynamics deals with thermal theory at the point of view of energy balance and transform. Energy can be transformed from one form to another but the total quantity of energy is conserved.

Chapter 3. Heat Transfer

Abstract
Heat transfer is the science of study of heat transfer laws. Mainly the law of heat transfer caused by temperature difference.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 4. Fluid Flow

Abstract
Fluid flow is very important in most industrial processes, especially those related to heat transfer. When heat needs to be transferred from one point to another, it often needs to be designed with fluid flow. For example, cooling water system in gasoline or diesel engine, air flow of air-cooled motor, coolant loop of nuclear reactor, etc. Fluid flow is also often used to provide lubrication.

Chapter 5. Electrical Science

Abstarct
Electrical theory and electrical systems are very important in the operation, maintenance and technical support of nuclear engineering, especially nuclear power plants.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 6. Instrumentation and Control

Abstract
Instrument and control refers to the automatic control of the controlled variable. It will measure the signal with a given value, and then the deviation signal will be determined using control method. The output signal will be adjusted by the deviation. This chapter mainly introduces the temperature, pressure, water level, flow, location, radiation measurement principle and the system control principle.

Chapter 7. Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Abstract
Chemistry refers to the systematic investigation of the properties, structure and behavior of matter and the changes that occur in matter (Donald H. Andrews and Richard J. Kokes, Fundamental Chemistry, John Wiley & Sons,). This general definition raises many questions. These questions have been answered in chemical research. This chapter will discuss terms and basic concepts that help to understanding chemistry.

Chapter 8. Material Science

Abstract
Materials science is the subject of the relationship between the material composition, structure, processing, properties, and performance, as well as to provide scientific basis for the design, materials, manufacturing, process optimization and rational use of. This chapter introduces in detail all the knowledge and progress in material science, but also introduces the basic principle of material application in the field of nuclear engineering.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 9. Mechanical Science

Abstract
In the field of nuclear engineering using a large number of general machinery equipment. We here introduce some major general machinery, such as internal combustion engines, heat exchangers, pumps, valves, air compressors, hydraulic machine, an evaporator, a steam generator, a cooling tower, a voltage regulator, a diffusion separator.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 10. Nuclear Physics

Abstract
Nuclear physics known as atomic physics is a branch established in the twentieth century. It studies the structure of nuclei and variation; generating radiation beam, detection and analysis techniques; and with nuclear energy, nuclear technology issues.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 11. Reactor Theory

Abstract
Nuclear reactor, or simply the reactor, is able to maintain a controlled, self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction in order to achieve the use of nuclear energy. The principles of a nuclear reactor theory discussed in this chapter include nuclear reactor physics, operation of nuclear reactors, nuclear fuel cycle and so on.
Jiyang Yu

Chapter 12. Radiation Protection

Abstract
Radiation is the energy of electromagnetic waves or particles in the form of outward diffusion phenomena.
Jiyang Yu
