This book describes commercial nuclear power plants, their benefits for the general public, and the safety measures that have been put in place to prevent future accidents. The authors, Charles Ramsey and Mohammad Modarres, believe that nuclear power is in the world’s best interest, and they present arguments to demonstrate that there is an infrastructure in place for operating commercial nuclear power plants safely. They describe the many types of fuel available for electricity generation. In addition, they explain the designs of nuclear reactors and address issues such as fire, environmental and health risks, and employee safety concerns. The authors also discuss the accidents that have occurred at nuclear facilities and use them to determine the root causes of accidents and how to prepare for and prevent them in the future. The book includes diagrams, charts, and tables to facilitate analysis of the arguments and understanding of key mechanical concepts. It also contains the text of the declarations made at the Moscow Nuclear Safety and Security Summit on April 20, 1996 and an appendix about forecasts of international electricity demand and usage.
