|Abstract: ||Nuclear reactors are devices containing fissionable material in sufficient quantity
and so arranged as to be capable of maintaining a controlled, self-sustaining
NUCLEAR FISSION chain reaction. They are also known as atomic piles, atomic
reactors, fission reactors, and nuclear piles, although such names are deprecated.
The power level at which a nuclear operates is proportional to the rate of fissions,
which in turn , depends on the number of neutrons in the reactor. There fore by
controlling the number of neutrons ,we can control the power level of the reactor.
Recently, there has been a resurgence in promoting nuclear reactors as a viable and
necessary component of technology . The design ,construction and operation of a
nuclear reactor are today part of a huge and expanding field of nuclear
engineering.  , |
