Nuclear Safety is a comprehensive reference for heath & safety and engineering professionals in the nuclear industry and related bodies, including regulatory authorities, environmental and energy scientists, students, researchers and consultants. It provides the methods and data needed to evaluate and manage the safety of nuclear facilities and related processes using risk-based safety analysis, and provides readers with the techniques to assess the consequences of radioactive releases. The book covers relevant international and regional safety criteria (US, IAEA, EUR, PUN, URD, INI). The contents deal with each of the critical components of a nuclear plant, and provide an analysis of the risks arising from a variety of sources, including earthquakes, tornadoes, external impact and human factors. It also deals with the safety of underground nuclear testing and the handling of radioactive waste. â¢ Covers all plant components and potential sources of risk including human, technical and natural factors â¢ Brings together information on nuclear safety for which the reader would previously have to consult many different and expensive sources â¢ Provides international design and safety criteria and an overview of regulatory regimesâ¢ Includes case studies and analysis of major accidents with data and calculations on accompanying websiteGianni Petrangeli has 40 years of experience in the nuclear industry. He was Director of the Departmental Area for Integrated Systems and New Technologies of ANPA, the Italian Regulatory body responsible for nuclear and industrial safety. He is a consultant to the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency and a researcher for nuclear safety for the European Commission. He lectures on Nuclear and Industrial Safety at the University of Pisa.
