Description

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.
 
The purpose of this chapter is to present a survey of the application of nuclear energy to marine propulsion. With the continued push to comply with ever increasing airborne emission reduction control laws, nuclear power is a viable option as it does not produce greenhouse gases or air pollution such as NOx, SOx, CO and CO2. This chapter is directed toward people having an engineering background but no experience regarding nuclear reactors. Fundamental atomic theory and nuclear reactor theory are described with an overview of former, current and possible advanced nuclear reactor options to propel and power future merchant marine and naval vessels.
