Download or read book entitled Computational Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Science Using Python by author: Ryan McClarren which was release on 27 October 2017 and published by Academic Press with total page 460 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Computational Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Science Using Python provides the necessary knowledge users need to embed more modern computing techniques into current practices, while also helping practitioners replace Fortran-based implementations with higher level languages. The book is especially unique in the market with its implementation of Python into nuclear engineering methods, seeking to do so by first teaching the basics of Python, then going through different techniques to solve systems of equations, and finally applying that knowledge to solve problems specific to nuclear engineering. Along with examples of code and end-of-chapter problems, the book is an asset to novice programmers in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences, teaching them how to analyze complex systems using modern computational techniques. For decades, the paradigm in engineering education, in particular, nuclear engineering, has been to teach Fortran along with numerical methods for solving engineering problems. This has been slowly changing as new codes have been written utilizing modern languages, such as Python, thus resulting in a greater need for the development of more modern computational skills and techniques in nuclear engineering. Offers numerical methods as a tool to solve specific problems in nuclear engineering Provides examples on how to simulate different problems and produce graphs using Python Supplies accompanying codes and data on a companion website, along with solutions to end-of-chapter problems
