Elementary Reactor Physics details the underlying principles that govern the physical processes taking place in a nuclear reactor core. The title tackles the various variables that contribute to the kinetic behavior of a nuclear reactor.
The text first introduces the basic concepts of nuclear reactor kinetics, and then proceeds to tackling neutron and neutron cross-sections. Next, the selection covers neutron diffusion and the slowing down of neutrons. The text also covers both homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions, along with the effects of temperature and of fission products. The eighth chapter discusses long-term changes, while the last chapter tackles control rod calculations.
The book will be of great use to students of degrees involved in dealing with various operational concerns in nuclear reactors.
