In this fine text the author seeks to provide a complete treatment of reactor core and reactor power plant engineering design and operation. Unlike many works of this kind which emphasize the more developed fields of nuclear and reactor physics, and are deficient in engineering, this text treats nuclear and reactor physics in Part I, as a coordinated phase of the engineering aspects of power reactor design, leading the student toward the development of neutron flux and consequently power distribution within reactor cores. With this as the basis, the author tackles his chief objectives in Part II and III, beginning with heat generation and removal, core thermal and hydrodynamic design, thermodynamics, various nuclear plant types, their control, cycles, components, etc., to make the engineering treatment as complete as possible. In short, this text gives a coordinated treatment of nuclear power reactors and power plants from the point of view of physics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid flow.
