Reaktorsicherheit für Leistungskernkraftwerke: Die Entwicklung im politischen und technischen Umfeld der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

Das Werk beschreibt die Entwicklung der Reaktorsicherheit deutscher Leichtwasser-Kernkraftwerke aus den Anfängen heraus mit ihren vielfältigen Bezügen zu ausländischen Vorbildern, zu nationalen und internationalen Forschungsvorhaben sowie zu konventionellen und nuklearen Schadensereignissen. Detaillierte und reich bebilderte Darstellungen befassen sich mit den spezifischen Sicherheitstechniken, wie der Berstsicherheit der druckführenden Umschließung, der Sicherstellung der Notkühlung im Kühlmittelverlust-Störfall, der Leittechnik und dem Umgebungsschutz durch das Containment.

Energy and fuel systems integration

Power and gas structures Integration explains how turning out to be power and gasoline calls for, paired with the necessity for environmental maintenance, require diverse resources of power and gas to cooperate and combine with one another instead of easily compete. offering a variety of examples of power and gas platforms integration luck tales, this ebook: Discusses using various combos of fuels for combustion, gasification, liquefaction, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion procedures Describes using hybrid nuclear and renewable power structures for strength and warmth cogenerations with nonelectrical functions info the holistic integration of renewable, nuclear, and fossil power platforms by way of fuel, warmth, and shrewdpermanent electric grids strength and gasoline platforms Integration emphasizes the various merits of those built-in structures, together with sustainability, flexibility for optimization and scale-up, and extra effective use of garage, transportation, and supply infrastructures.

Green polymer composites technology: properties and applications

The house at 40 Broad Street nearest the well was suspected as the source; there had been four fatal cases of cholera at the house. A privy emptying into a cesspool, which served more like a tank, overflowed to a drain passing close to the well. On further investigation, including excavations, it was found that the Broad Street well was a brick-lined dug well with a domed brick top 3 feet, 6 inches below the street. The well was 28 feet, 10 inches deep and 6 feet in diameter, and contained 7 feet, 6 inches of water.
