This edition (reprint of the 1992 second edition) provides broad subject-area coverage, application of theory to practical aspects of commercial nuclear power, and use of instructional objectives. It focuses on what distinguishes nuclear engineering from the other engineering disciplines. It also seeks to unravel key acronyms and other terminology, including occasional historical examples where the jargon has outlived the viability of underlying concepts. This edition follows the time-honored tradition of the engineering profession and the nuclear industry in learning from experience to build on strengths and correct weaknesses.
