Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power r power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Presently, the vast majority of electricity from nuclear power is produced by nuclear fission of uranium.

This book sets the scene with a brief history of nuclear power in Britain and the technology behind it, not just the reactors but the plants that processed the uranium, built the fuel elements and reprocessed the spent fuel.

It goes on to illustrate the transport of the spent nuclear fuel from across Britain to the Sellafield Reprocessing plant.

The safe and secure transport of radioactive material requires a framework that combines regulatory requirements, package certification, inspections and a monitoring system. The IAEA assists Member States in strengthening this framework through the implementation of its transport regulations, ensuring the safe and secure packaging and handling of these materials.

These regulations apply to the transport of radioactive material by all modes on land, water, or in the air, including transport that is incidental to the use of the radioactive material.

Nuclear Power Reactors in the World, Edition. The following chapter derives the governing equations for neutron transport, fluid transport, and heat transfer, so that readers not familiar with any of these fields can comprehend the book without difficulty.

The book thereafter examines the peculiarities of nuclear reactor systems and provides an overview of the relevant modelling strategies. Transport of nuclear waste is highly regulated, well contained, extensively planned and highly organized.

Only highly trained safety professionals may haul the waste thereby making nuclear transport safer than that of general chemicals. Nuclear waste is transported.
