Transient Diffusion in Nuclear Fuels Processes Paperback / softback
Nuclear fuel materials are those that are capable of undergoing fission reactions along with the liberation of enormous quantity of energy.
The fuel cycle costs are 20% of nuclear electricity generation cost.
This new book evaluates the use of the damped wave diffusion and relaxation equation to nuclear fuels processes.
Simultaneous diffusion and auto-catalytic reactions and the wave diffusion phenomena may have a combined effect of sub-critical damped oscillations in concentration under certain conditions.
Closed form analytical solutions are developed from the hyperbolic partial differential equations that govern the phenomena.
