With the renewed interest in nuclear fuel as an energy source, fuels modeling is an active research area that is quickly expanding This book outlines the state of the science, discussing traditional modeling schemes as well as new techniques. The text presents an integrated theoretical, experimental, and computational methodology that has proven instrumental in developing new materials for nuclear fuel. It introduces methods such as electronic structure modeling and finite elements and demonstrates their ability to predict materials properties and simulate complex phenomena. Each chapter details the concepts, methods, and results and provides references to journal articles and books.
