Pressurized Water Reactors is the sixth volume in the JSME Series on Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation. In this volume, series editor Yasuo Koizumi and his volume editors, Hidehito Mimaki, Yurugi Kanzaki, and Tomofumi Yamamoto, compile all the latest research on PWRs into this comprehensive reference.

Beginning with an analysis of the history of PWR development, the reader is guided through optimum design processes for PWRs, considering safety throughout. Thermal-hydraulic aspects within the PWR system, as well as inside the reactor core, are also discussed.

This book explores the advancement and improvement of fuel and includes analysis codes for the design and safety of PWRs. The future prospects for the next generation of PWR and small modular reactors are discussed, thus providing the reader with a basis for further research of their own.

As with the other volumes in this series, this book will be an invaluable resource for nuclear and thermal engineers and researchers.
