Description

Materials and Water Chemistry for Supercritical Water-cooled Reactors uniquely brings together materials and water chemistry, highlighting their interrelationship, their historical perspective, and their application to SCWR conceptual design. Written by world leading experts, all active in the area of materials and chemistry R&D in support of GEN IV SCWR, this book presents a comprehensive reference on the topics, and in particular, how their data relate to the SCWR design itself. It is an essential text for researchers in the areas of supercritical water cooled reactor materials and chemistry.

In addition, the book gives newcomers to the field a survey of all of the available literature and a clear understanding of how these studies relate to the design of the SCWR concept. The material presented is at a specialist’s level in materials or corrosion science, or in water chemistry of power plants.

Key Features

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of the chemistry and materials of SCWR
  • Presents the latest research and results condensed into one book
  • Covers the differences in use of SCW in nuclear reactors and fossil plants, and the resulting differences in materials requirements

Readership

Researchers in the field of supercritical water-cooled reactor materials and chemistry, researchers working in industry or academia; researchers of supercritical water-cooled fossil fuelled power plants; graduate and post-graduate students
