Advances in Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation is the second volume in the JSME Series on Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation. Series Editor Yasuo Koizumi and his Volume Editor Hitoshi Asano build on the fundamentals of nuclear and thermal power generation by firstly analysing different fuel options for thermal power generation and then also different reactor types for nuclear power generation. The design of conventional, natural and forced circulation reactors are explained in detail, as well as bubbling and circulation fluidized-bed reactors, making this a valuable guide for engineers and regulators developing nuclear and thermal power generation systems. Combining their wealth of experience and knowledge, the author team present recent advanced technologies to the reader to enable them to further develop their research in various fields, notably combined cycles, USD and AUSC, as well as PFBC and IGCC. The most recent research on the best practises for construction, operation and control of these reactors are clearly presented, and regulations and standards are considered throughout. The inclusion of photographs and drawings make this a unique reference for all those working and researching in the thermal and nuclear fields.

Key Features

  • Develops a deeper understanding of the Construction, operation and control of nuclear and thermal and power generation systems
  • Written by experts from the leaders and pioneers in nuclear research at the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers and draws upon their combined wealth of knowledge and experience
  • Includes photographs and drawings of real examples and case studies from Japan and other key regions such as the US and Europe to provide a deeper learning opportunity


Researchers and professional engineers in nuclear and thermal energy engineering, Post-graduate students in power generation, especially nuclear and thermal; nuclear engineers, plant operators and regulators
