The Pius Principle and the Secure Reactor Concepts

  • Kåre Hannerz
Part of the Advances in Nuclear Science and Technology book series (ANST, volume 19)


The purpose of introducing the SECURE reactor concepts is, simply stated, to surmount the present impediments to the rational use of nuclear energy in many countries.
