INL captures one dramatic second of a fuel rod test in slow motion
Idaho National Laboratory recently released footage of a new experiment at its Transient Reactor Test Facility (TREAT) that simulates what happens to a nuclear fuel pin when it starts to overheat. Go to Twitter for the original post, or cut to the chase and watch a 14-second clip on YouTube.

This revised edition spells out a systematic mathematical approach to nuclear statics that is used as the basis for most practical calculations. A good understanding of the way nuclear reactors are described in mathematical theory is important in performing typical nuclear engineering tasks such as defining reactor problems, evaluating the results, and judging possible deficiencies in approaches. Recommended as a textbook and also useful as a source book for reactor analysis and design, this book presents the mathematical foundation for the advanced treatment of the steady-state behavior of all types of nuclear reactors. Each chapter concludes with homework problems and review questions.
