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

Strength and gasoline structures Integration explains how growing to be strength and gasoline calls for, paired with the necessity for environmental protection, require assorted resources of power and gasoline to cooperate and combine with one another instead of easily compete. delivering quite a few examples of strength and gas structures integration good fortune tales, this publication: Discusses using diverse combos of fuels for combustion, gasification, liquefaction, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion procedures Describes using hybrid nuclear and renewable strength structures for strength and warmth cogenerations with nonelectrical functions information the holistic integration of renewable, nuclear, and fossil strength structures through gasoline, warmth, and clever electric grids strength and gas platforms Integration emphasizes the numerous benefits of those built-in platforms, together with sustainability, flexibility for optimization and scale-up, and extra effective use of garage, transportation, and supply infrastructures.

Partitioning onto the soil organic carbon) rather than remain in the water phase. Polarity refers to the extent to which electrical charge is unevenly distributed within the molecule. Water itself is very polar, having an excess of negative charge, associated with the oxygen, balanced by an excess of positive charge, associated with the hydrogen atoms. Therefore, water readily dissolves polar (hydrophilic) compounds. In general, nonpolar (hydrophobic) compounds tend to associate more strongly with less polar phases, such as soil organic material or NAPLs.

Depending on the depth of soil being remediated, extraction of air laden with contaminant vapors can be achieved with vertical extraction wells or horizontal extraction pipes. The SVE process takes advantage of the volatility of the contaminants to allow mass transfer from adsorbed, dissolved, and free phases in the soil to the vapor phase, where it is removed under vacuum and treated above ground. In order for this process to be effective, the contaminants of concern must be volatile enough and have a low enough water solubility to be drawn into the soil gas for removal.
