Advances in Nuclear Science and Technology, Volume 8 discusses the development of nuclear power in several countries throughout the world. This book discusses the world's largest program of land-based electricity production in the United States. Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the phenomenon of quasi-exponential behavior by examining two mathematical models of the neutron field. This text then discusses the finite element method, which is a method for obtaining approximate solutions to integral or differential equations. Other chapters consider the status of the accuracy of nuclear data used for reactor calculations and the target accuracies required by reactor physics. This book discusses as well the role of integral experiments for the improvement of nuclear data and the different approaches taken to enhance them. The final chapter deals with the manufacture and application of coated particles. This book is a valuable resource for reactor physicists, engineers, scientists, and research workers.
