How to Drive a Nuclear Reactor Paperback / softback

Part of the Springer Praxis Books series



Have you ever wondered how a nuclear power station works?

This lively book will answer that question. It'll take you on a journey from the science behind nuclear reactors, through their start-up, operation and shutdown.

Along the way it covers a bit of the engineering, reactor history, different kinds of reactors and what can go wrong with them.

Much of this is seen from the viewpoint of a trainee operator on a Pressurised Water Reactor - the most common type of nuclear reactor in the world. Colin Tucker has spent the last thirty years keeping reactors safe.

Join him on a tour that is the next best thing to driving a nuclear reactor yourself!
