Radiation Safety - New Books
Handbook of Radiobiology by Thayalan KuppusamyRadiobiology, also known as radiation biology, is a field of clinical and basic medical sciences that involves the study of the action of ionising radiation on living things. This handbook is a complete guide to radiobiology for postgraduate students. Beginning with an overview of human biology and radiation physics, the following chapters explain the interaction of radiation with cells, its beneficial damage to cancer cells, and adverse effects on normal cells and organs. The final sections of the book cover time, dose and fractionation models, and radiation safety and protection. Enhanced by images and tables, this useful reference text is presented in a logical format with simple terms to assist learning and understanding. Key Points Complete guide to radiobiology for postgraduate students Covers beneficial damage to cancer cells and adverse effects on normal cells Explains time, dose and fractionation models Logical, easy to understand format

Radiation Safety by Haydee DomenechThis book discusses important fundamentals of radiation safety with specific details on dose units, calculations, measuring, and biological effects of ionizing radiation. The author covers different exposure situations and their requirements, and relevant legislation and regulations governing radiation safety. The book also examines radioactive waste management, the transport of radioactive materials, emergency planning and preparedness and various examples of radiation protection programs for industrial, medical, and academic applications.

Radioactive Wastes and Exposure by Austin D. RussellMedical exposure to ionising radiation remains by far the largest contributor to the radiation dose from manmade sources of radiation. Strategies for dose and risk management, with a focus on the minimisation of the stochastic effect and prevention of tissue reactions are presented in Chapter One. A critical review about solid radioactive wastes in Nuclear Medicine facilities and its management, storage and disposal is covered in Chapter Two. Chapter Three presents an assessment of a mixed system for calculating electromagnetic dosimetry that combined experimental radiation parameters and Finite Differences in Temporal Domain simulations based on numerical phantom rats. Chapter Four described and compares the legislation and legal provisions on waste disposal for medium, low and high levels of radiation among BRICS countries Brazil, Russia Federation, India, Peoples Republic of China and South Africa. Chapter Five introduces studies on the assessment of local acceptance of radioactive waste facilities.

Fundamentals of Nuclear Engineering by Brent J. Lewis; E. Nihan Onder; Andrew A. PrudilFundamental of Nuclear Engineering is derived from over 25 years of teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on nuclear engineering. The material has been extensively class tested and provides the most comprehensive textbook and reference on the fundamentals of nuclear engineering. It includes a broad range of important areas in the nuclear engineering field; nuclear and atomic theory; nuclear reactor physics, design, control/dynamics, safety and thermal-hydraulics; nuclear fuel engineering; and health physics/radiation protection. It also includes the latest information that is missing in traditional texts, such as space radiation. The aim of the book is to provide a source for upper level undergraduate and graduate students studying nuclear engineering.
