Sponsored by the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the U.S. Department 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—detail the actions necessary to decommission a facility, and
Part 5—describes projects as well as both positive and negative lessons learned.
The printed text is supplemented with a compact disk.
