This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Advanced ceramics and composites have become extremely important for a broad range of nuclear applications due to their desirable properties when compared to metals and metal alloys. Ceramics for New Nuclear Applications provides a comprehensive review on the most up-to-date technologies for advanced ceramics and composites for nuclear applications. The chapters covered include nuclear fuel and structural materials, materials for the next generation of reactors and fusion reactors, and materials for nuclear medicine. Cutting-edge topics such as accident tolerant fuels, space applications, and nuclear medicine will also attract a large audience who are specifically interested in these subject areas. Academic and industrial researchers working in the field of materials for nuclear energy systems, nuclear propulsion systems and nuclear medicine will find the book a valuable reference resource. A comprehensive state-of-the-art review on future nuclear technologies and advanced ceramic materials Covers the most important advances over the last ten years in ceramics technologies for nuclear applications Covers high temperature materials such as advanced ceramics fuels, ceramic composites for high temperature reactors and accident tolerant cores, and ceramic fuels assemblies for space nuclear systems Chapters provide information on characterization and materials behavior, fabrication and joining methods, microstructure and mechanical property correlations, irradiation behavior and in-reactor performance of cladding
