(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
After the end of World War II, the world entered an even more turbulent period as it faced the beginnings of the Cold War, during which the prospect of mutually assured destruction between the world's largest nuclear weapon ...
Global terrestrial uranium supply and its policy implications : a probabilistic projection of future uranium costs
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
An accurate outlook on long-term uranium resources is critical in forecasting uranium costresource relationships, and for energy policy planning as regards the development and deployment of nuclear fuel cycle alternatives. ...
Economics of nuclear fuel cycles : option valuation and neutronics simulation of mixed oxide fuels
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
In most studies aiming at the economic assessment of nuclear fuel cycles, a primary concern is to keep scenarios economically comparable. For Uranium Oxide (UOX) and Mixed Oxide (MOX) fuels, a traditional way to achieve ...
