Never the less the book can be used to develop software in order to do thermal mechanical analysis of fuel rods. The neutronics part as to core design is covered but only basic models are presented (edition 2). Summarizing this book presents an easy reading introduction to nucelar fuel but it also enable the raeder to evaluate and calculate on more advanced topics.(edition 2).
