Fundamentals of Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation is the first Volume in the JSME Series on Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation. Series Editor Yasuo Koizumi and his Volume Editor Mamoru Ozawa provide a thorough and complete reference on the history of Thermal and Nuclear Power Generation which has informed and sculpted today's industry. This volume prepares readers for subsequent publications in the series which address more advanced topics and will particularly benefit early career researchers and those approaching the industry from an alternative discipline. Modern thermal and nuclear power generation systems and technologies are then explored, including clear analysis on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, thermal engineering, combustion engineering and nuclear physics. The impact of these technologies on society is considered throughout, as well as supply issues, accident risk analysis, and important emission and sustainability considerations.
  • Written by experts from the leaders and pioneers in nuclear research at the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers and draws upon their combined wealth of knowledge and experience
  • Includes real examples and case studies from Japan and other key regions such as the US and Europe to provide a deeper learning opportunity
  • Considers societal impact and sustainability concerns and goals throughout

Koizumi, Yasuo
Yasuo Koizumi is a Professor at the Department of Functional Machinery and Mechanics at Shinshu University. He received his PhD degree from the University of Tokyo in 1977. He started his research career at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute in 1977 as a research engineer for nuclear reactor safety. He then worked at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory from 1981 through 1983 and later moved to the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Kogakuin University in 1989. He has been in his present position from 2008. His research is focused in the areas of pool and flow boiling, critical heat flux, condensation and two-phase flow. He is also interested in heat transfer and fluid flow in micro scale. Since his research field is closely related to energy systems, he has great interest in thermal and nuclear power station and energy supply.
