Thermal Engineering of Nuclear Power Stations Balance-of-Plant Systems by Charles F. Bowman. The purpose of this book is to impart the knowledge and experience received during more than 50 years of working in the field of thermal performance of balance-of-plant (BOP) systems to the next generation. The scope of this book encompasses the thermal aspects of the entire nuclear station BOP from the source of motive steam to the discharge of the waste heat and beyond. The book is practical in that a qualified engineer may easily follow the logic, and example problems are provided from actual experiences at operating nuclear stations.
