This textbook on the nuclear fuel cycle is for college seniors or first-year graduate students. It discusses design and production of a reactor fuel, methods of mining and milling uranium, waste management, and environmental effects. It explains how uranium and plutonium are reprocessed and recycled, and how in-core fuel is handled. The major types of nuclear reactors are discussed in some detail. The text presents the utility economics and physics calculations involved. It includes numerous equations, diagrams, charts, and photographs, and there are practice problems at the end of each chapter. This second edition updates information relevant to the nuclear fuel cycle following the first edition printed in 1990.
