      If you are looking for a good pro-nuclear book, this is pretty good. She covers all the base, talks about contamination risks, terrorism, nuclear proliferation and weapons, all the stuff that you need to address. The main drawbacks are: (a) Tends to go on and on and on pretty well written but too much exposition.4/5.

Conspectus Boron is an interesting element with unusual polymorphism. While three-dimensional (3D) structural motifs are prevalent in bulk boron, atomic boron clusters are found to have planar or quasi-planar structures, stabilized by localized two-center–two-electron (2c–2e) σ bonds on the periphery and delocalized multicenter–two-electron (nc–2e) bonds in both σ and π frameworks.

Nuclear weapons, and the role they play in American grand strategy, are an issue of fundamental importance.1 Any use of these fearsome tools of destruction, whether intentionally or by mistake, would be catastrophic.

Nuclear weapons also buttress much of American grand strategy — explicitly and more often implicitly — to a far greater extent than is acknowledged.

• Naval ships operate in a combat environment. They must be able to resist underwater explosions, gunfire, blasts and projectiles. The shock produced by a ship's own weapons (16 inch guns, rockets) and nuclear air blast loading must factor into the design as well.

The reference is mandatory for explosive safety design. Design of structures to resist the effects of conventional weapons will be in accordance with TMand design of facilities to resist the effects of nuclear weapons will be in accordance with TMTMTMTMTM and TM.

A single kt yield nuclear weapon will vaporise anything within a 5 mile radius of ground zero. Concrete structures and pretty much anything else within a further miles will be incinerated. Anyone within a immediate radius will survive less than a week, radiation poisoning will be the primary cause.Swisdak, M.
