DOE-HDBK-1019/1-93, DOE FUNDAMENTALS HANDBOOK NUCLEAR PHYSICS AND REACTOR THEORY (Volume 1 of 2)
DOE-HDBK-1019/1-93, DOE FUNDAMENTALS HANDBOOK NUCLEAR PHYSICS AND REACTOR THEORY (Volume 1 of 2). The Nuclear Physics and Reactor Theory Handbook was developed to assist nuclear
facility operating contractors in providing operators, maintenance personnel, and the technical
staff with the necessary fundamentals training to ensure a basic understanding of nuclear physics
and reactor theory. The handbook includes information on atomic and nuclear physics; neutron
characteristics; reactor theory and nuclear parameters; and the theory of reactor operation. This
information will provide personnel with a foundation for understanding the scientific principles
that are associated with various DOE nuclear facility operations and maintenance.
