Description: Nuclear engineering is the field of engineering that deals with the science and application of nuclear and radiation processes. These processes include the release, control, and utilization of nuclear energy and the production and use of radiation and radioactive materials for applications in research, industry, medicine, and national security. Nuclear engineering is based on fundamental principles of physics and mathematics that describe nuclear interactions and the transport of neutrons and gamma rays. These phenomena in turn are dependent on heat transfer, fluid flow, chemical reactions, and behaviour of materials when subjected to radiation. Nuclear engineering is therefore inherently a multifaceted discipline, relying on several branches of physics, and, like the aerospace industry, it relies to a large extent on modelling and simulation for the design and analysis of complex systems that are too large and expensive to be tested. Chapters are included on the scope of nuclear engineering; atomic and nuclear physics; interaction of radiation with matter; nuclear reactors and nuclear power; neutron diffusion and moderation; nuclear reactor theory; the time-dependent reactor; heat removal from nuclear reactors; radiation protection; radiation shielding; and reactor licensing, safety, and the environment.
