Fusion Neutronics (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics by Yican Wu

By Yican Wu

This booklet presents a scientific and complete advent to fusion neutronics, masking all key themes from the elemental theories and methodologies, in addition to a variety of fusion approach designs and experiments. it's the first-ever e-book concentrating on the topic of fusion neutronics research.

Compared with different nuclear units equivalent to fission reactors and accelerators, fusion platforms are ordinarily characterised through their advanced geometry and nuclear physics, which entail new demanding situations for neutronics equivalent to complex modeling, deep penetration, low simulation potency, multi-physics coupling, and so forth. The booklet makes a speciality of the neutronic features of fusion platforms and introduces a chain of theories and methodologies that have been constructed to handle the demanding situations of fusion neutronics. extra, it introduces readers to the original ideas and strategies of neutronics layout, experimental methodologies and methodologies for fusion systems.

The publication not just highlights the newest advances and tendencies within the box, but additionally attracts at the reviews and abilities accrued within the author’s greater than forty years of analysis. To make it extra obtainable and improve its sensible price, a number of consultant examples are integrated to demonstrate the applying and potency of the tools, designs and experimental options discussed.
