Beschrijving

Nuclear Energy: An Introduction to the Concepts, Systems, and Applications of Nuclear Processes, Eighth Edition, provides essential information on basic nuclear physics, systems and the applications of nuclear energy. It comprehensively covers Basic Concepts, Radiation and Its Uses, and Nuclear Power, providing students with a broad view of nuclear energy and science in a fast-paced format that features updated, timely content on topics of new and growing importance to current and future nuclear professionals, such as tritium-powered betavoltaic integrated circuit chips, the modulation of radioactive decay constant due to solar activity, Monte Carlo radiation transport calculations and accelerator-driven systems.

This book is an essential resource for any first course on nuclear energy and systems.



  • Contains coverage of timely topics, such as the connection between hydraulic fracturing (fracking), radioactivity and nuclear forensics
  • Covers the TerraPower traveling wave reactor, the first ever FDA approved drug for the treatment of acute radiation injury, and more
  • Describes the industry response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster, including FLEX in the U.S.
  • Includes more worked examples and end of chapter exercises

Biografie (woord)

Keith Holbert is presently an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy

Engineering of Arizona State University (ASU) where he has been a faculty member since 1989. He

earned his B.S., M.S, and Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from University of Tennessee. His research

expertise is in the area of instrumentation and system diagnostics including radiation effects on sensors.

Keith has performed tests on safety-related systems in more than a dozen nuclear power plants in the U.S.

He has published more than 100 journal and conference papers, a textbook, and holds one patent. Dr.

Holbert is a registered professional (nuclear) engineer (P.E.). Keith is a member of the American Nuclear

Society (ANS) and the American Society for Engineering Education, and a Senior Member of the IEEE

(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). Keith is the Chair of the Arizona Section of the ANS

and the Director of the Nuclear Power Generation Program at ASU. Dr. Holbert presently holds a Guest

Scientist affiliation with Los Alamos National Laboratory. Professor Holbert teaches undergraduate and

graduate engineering courses on electric power generation (from all forms of energy), nuclear reactor

theory and design, nuclear power plant controls and diagnostics, reactor safety analysis, and health

physics and radiation measurements. Besides teaching awards at ASU, Dr. Holbert was recently

recognized with the IEEE Transactions on Education Best Paper award for 2010.
