Inhaltsangabe: For many of us, the mention of nuclear power immediately brings to mind the notorious accidents: Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. Our next thought might be, I should really find out more about this. This book, written for the layman by an expert in the field, tells us how nuclear power works, what it looks like, and why it is safe. It explains how nuclear fission works, how nuclear reactors are controlled, and how their safety systems reliably protect us. For those of us who have never visited a nuclear power station, Roger Steed provides detailed descriptions, drawings, and photographs. He addresses our concerns about radiation protection, the economy of CANDU reactors, the lifespan of nuclear plants, and plant decommissioning. This book provides a very good understanding of the use of nuclear power, with its potential to protect our environment and decrease global warming. Having been in the nuclear industry since 1969, Roger retired just over three years ago from NB Power s Point Lepreau Generating Station, where he then was the technical supervisor, Nuclear Materials Management. He first showed me his manuscript in February 2002. I was most impressed by it. He told me then that he had written it to the non technically educated layperson, but I felt that it would also be helpful to many people in the nuclear industry. Lloyd Jones, former chief operating officer, Zircatec Precision Industries,and former chairman of the Canadian Nuclear Association.
Über den Autor: Roger Steed was born in Corbridge, Northumberland, near Newcastle on Tyne, England, and came to Canada on January 12, 1949. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) in the Regular Officer Training Plan in 1959 and was granted the Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto in May 1963. He left the RCN in May 1966, as a lieutenant, having been navigating officer of HMCS Gatineau. After working as a design engineer in Dupont of Canada s Maitland Works, near Brockville, Ontario, he joined Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd in 1969, as Fuel Handling Commissioning Engineer for the Pickering Generating Station project. He commenced working at Ontario Hydro Pickering GS in February 1971, just before its Unit 1 first started up, and in mid 1972 was invited to join Ontario Hydro, which he did. In 1975, he was invited to join NB Power, and in November of that year became a member of its Point Lepreau GS Staff, first serving as Fuel Handling Supervisor. He continued on Point Lepreau s staff until June 2003, when he retired. For his last several years in Point Lepreau, he was Technical Supervisor, Nuclear Materials Management. As well, Mr. Steed was 2nd Oboist of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra from September 1956 to December 1958. His oboe rested very quietly until 1988, when he joined the Saint John Symphony as 2nd Oboist. This orchestra, in which he is still active, is now known as Symphony New Brunswick. He has also played several concerts with the PEI Symphony. He commenced writing books in the early nineties and Canadian Pacific in the Selkirks, Volume Two, and Diesels in the Maritimes and Newfoundland were both published by BRMNA in 1993 and 1995, respectively. Canadian Warships Since 1956 was published by Vanwell in 1999. Mr. Steed and his wife, Ruth, have three married children and three grandchildren.
