Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Reactors – Klimov

In this post we will see Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Reactors by A. Klimov.

About the book:

The book covers different aspects of nuclear physics. In chapters 1 to 4 basics of nuclear physics and interactions of elementary particles are considered. Topics covered are atomic structure, elementary particles (Chapter 1), properties of nucleus and nuclear particles (Chapter 2), nuclear transformations (Chapter 3) and interactions (Chapter 4). Chapter 5 talks about moderation of neutrons and thus sets stage for the chapters on nuclear reactors (Chapters 6, 7 & 9). The book also talk about shielding against radiation and dosimetry (Chapter 8). The reactors covered are water cooled graphite moderated, Graphite Gas-Cooled Reactors, Heavy-Water Reactors, Light-Water Reactors, Fast Reactors.

The book was translated from the Russian by O. Rudnitskaya, and was first published by Mir Publishers in 1975.
