The textbook explains the science and engineering of nuclear reactors, with emphasis on the CANDU design; and provides a unique and comprehensive learning resource for students, educators, trainers and working professionals. The material is suitable for the senior undergraduate or graduate level in university engineering and science. The textbook also supplements and augments the course materials provided to students enrolled in the UNENE M.Eng. The textbook is provided free of charge in pdf format.

  • World Nuclear Association Public Information Service - lots of general educational material here
  • What is nuclear? - No-nonsense public education on the use of nuclear energy to help with the energy problem
  • The Virtual Nuclear Tourist - Basic information about the different types of plants and their principle of operation, by Joseph Gonyeau. Well worth the visit.
  • EPRI Engineering Fundamentals. These courses were designed for computer based training (CBT) on a self-study basis. After the files are downloaded and unzipped, the start.html file should be used to run the course.

Energy Generation and Societal Context

  • Sustainable Energy - without the hot air by David MacKay - Quantification of energy issues, a must read for those wishing to make informed decisions - an essential book that is free in pdf form.
  • Energy Widgets: Worldwide energy consumption (by country – figures updated every second); Worldwide energy production (Crude oil, coal, natural gas, solar, wind, updated every second); Alternative energy production (by method: nuclear, solar, wind, hydro, etc.). Crude oil clocks, Greenhouse gas counters, Oil & Gas news + Many more...

Computer Codes / Simulations / Simulators

  • Henrick Ericksson's Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Java Applet - Pretty neat! - Please note that you must have a Java compatible browser.
  • CANDU desktop simulator by CTI SImulation International - Nice! This is the simulator used in the McMaster University course Engineering Physics 6P03 and UNENE UN0801 (Nuclear Power Plant Systems and Operation).
  • Radiation Safety Information Computational Cente (RSIC) - Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Hundreds of industry standard nuclear codes.
  • The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Databank is a specialised agency within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and development (OECD), an intergovernmental organisation of industrialised countries, based in Paris, France. Codes listed here are not available to Canada and US since the codes are available through RSIC (see above).
  • T-2 Nuclear Information Service - This service is run by Group T-16 (Nuclear Physics) of the Theoretical Division of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is operated by the University of California for the US Department of Energy. Contains reactor physics codes, data and educational tours.
  • SURTCO associates (it has two free programs and three demo programs) http://www.pipeline.com/~rstater/nuke6a.html
  • See also the nuceng.ca/download page for more code.

Lots of great information here about next generation reactors including a 97 page report on A Technology Roadmap for Generation IV Nuclear Energy Systems.

Radiation

Papers and Reports

  • Canadian flag.gif Radiation info (introductory level) by Jeremy Whitlock, with permission (pdf 296kb).
  • Canadian flag.gif Low dose Radiation Effects - This site features the latest scientific data, produced by Dr. Ron Mitchel, on the effects of low doses of radiation and provides additional links to other low dose research.
  • Canadian flag.gif www.nuceng.ca/refer/radiation/radiation.htm - A collection of information of radiation and doses.
  • Canadian flag.gifThe following documents are important as background information, as we approach the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident.

  • Radiation Dose Chart from the American Nuclear Society - Our daily exposure to radiation comes from numerous sources within our environment. The annual dose to which we are subjected depends upon where and how we live, and what we eat, drink, and breathe. This easy-to-use chart shows how to estimate that dose. Just in case the link should disappear in the future, here is the pdf version (941 kb) of the chart.
