More Description

Managing nuclear projects requires an understanding of the rigorous standards, stringent regulations, and specific technologies associated with the field. The emergence of new reactor designs, international initiatives, and large scale decommissioning efforts within the nuclear industry points to the need for an authoritative source of information on the management of such projects. In addition to the nuclear power industry, the nuclear field has extensive projects and activities in the areas of research reactors, medical isotope production, decommissioning, and remediation of contaminated sites. This book focuses on the management aspects of nuclear projects in a wide range of areas with emphasis on process, requirements, and lessons learned.
Part one provides a general overview of the nuclear industry including basic principles for managing nuclear projects, nuclear safety culture, management of worker risk, training, and management of complex projects, while the second section hones in on managing reactor projects with discussion on a variety of topics including management of research reactor projects, medical radioisotope production, power reactor modifications, power uprates, outage management, and management of nuclear-related R&D. Chapters in part three highlight the areas of radioactive waste and spent fuel management, reactor decommissioning, and remediation of radioactively contaminated sites. Finally, the concluding section explores regulation, guidance and emergency management in the nuclear industry. Chapters discuss quality assurance and auditing programs, licensing procedures for nuclear installations, emergency preparedness, management of nuclear crises, and international nuclear cooperation.
