Sponsored by the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the U.S. Dept. of Energy, this authoritative reference in nuclear decommissioning is a comprehensive effort combining policy, engineering, and science. The Decommissioning Handbook provides both a full introduction for those new to the field and a current desk reference on regulations, resources, and experience. Divided into five parts, each part provides thorough coverage as follows: Part 1 - summary of major elements of decommissioning; Part 2 - regulatory requirements and related issues as risk analysis and stakeholder participation; Parts 3 and 4 - details the actions necessary to decommission a facility; and Part 5 - describes projects as well as both positive and negative lessons learned.
