Part of the Springer Series in Reliability Engineering book series (RELIABILITY)


The information technology (IT) is applied to nuclear industry from the nuclear reactor theory to the risk management including the thermal-hydraulics. New kind of non-linear algorithm is introduced for the radiation dispersion for the Chernobyl accident as well as the risk management. Basically, the statistical manipulations for the nuclear interactions are concerned. Even the hardware for the electronics in radiation measurement is classified in the IT field in atomic technology.
