NUCLEAR SAFETY LIBRARY

Safety is critical across the industry

Nuclear Safety extends far beyond just Reactor Safety. The complete set of fuel cycles needs corresponding safety practices at every step. The general theme is explored by McNamara in papers on Weapons Proliferation on Politics Avenue.

The Three Mile Island meltdown was due to a comprehensive failure by all parties to do their jobs, including President Carter who contributed to the global panic. The US NRC ran a casual inspection routine which missed all the obvious signs of a poorly run operation.
These lessons have not been learned and Fukushima is still being worked over.

Fukushima is examined by many, including Lightfoot.

Peterson examines the safety needs for the Fission blankets around Fusion Hybrid cores.

Trusty robots are essential for service of plants which process or handle highly radioactive materials. Fusion is more active than Fission on robots as complex work must be done inside the plasma chambers of the large experiments.

New reports and publications can be accepted through the
Rapid Publishing service on EfN Square.

Further services are in development for this Sub-Library.
