Schaeffer, N.M. Reactor shielding for nuclear engineers. Springfield, VA: U.S. Atomic Energy Commission , 1973. Small 4to (25.4 cm, 10"). xii, 788 pp. $35.00
"As the number of nuclear power plants on order continues to grow . . . the demand for nuclear engineers should also increase, and a new text on reactor shielding is overdue. Shielding technology has matured considerably in the last decade, and shield physics must routinely be translated into shield design . . . New generations of computers have become available to exploit techniques heretofore considered too costly, and new distributions of neutrons and gamma rays can be followed, both in theory and in practice, throughout their transport histories. Such powerful tools have brought correspondingly large dividends to the shielding community. These advances and their underlying fundamentals are recorded in this volume. . . ."
