Plant Operations

  • Samuel Glasstone

As the nuclear power industry has matured, engineering emphasis has shifted from new construction-related design to operational considerations. Although many of the topics covered in previous chapters are relevant to plant operations, we are devoting a separate chapter to subjects that are particularly operations related.
