On March 11,2011, Japan skilled the biggest earthquake in its heritage, inflicting big estate harm. This ebook summarizes and significantly analyzes the average occasions and human shortcomings chargeable for the failure of the Fukushima reactors in the course of the first yr following the coincidence, and governmental and civilian responses to the emergency. It covers the plant's safeguard heritage, the tsunami and earthquake, and the results of the occasions at the nuclear reactor industry. Read more...

Fukushima Nuclear Reactor 21 China is building the first four of the Gen III which uses convection to shift heat from the reactor vessel into a massive tank of nearby cooling water. Decay heat is thus managed naturally without the need for diesel generators. Modern reactor designs don’t keep fuel in an elevated pool above the reactor like BWRs but store it in a separate earthquake-proof building. But the spent fuel problem remains a global problem. The days may be numbered for old BWRs, like those of Fukushima, but nuclear will remain firmly in the mix of future energy sources (Clery 2011).
