Reactor safety and radioisotope use and applications
MetadataShow full item record
There are a number of nuclear reactor types. It will be a purpose of this thesis to examine both a power reactor and a research reactor to determine what inherent measures, as well as applied measures, safety controls, and techniques are used in attempting to make nuclear reactor operations safe. Whereas nuclear reactors are extremely expensive and applicable to only a limited number of industries, radioisotopes, the unstable form of various elements, offers to a much larger industrial family a useful, inexpensive, and simple tool. A second purpose of this thesis will be to observe, describe, and evaluate the use and application of radioisotopes as they are currently being employed in industry, with particular reference to safety features.
