Reactor Thermalhydraulics Design, Course 2.1, by W.J. Garland, Chulalongkorn University, 01/02/1996. Doc type: Course.
Summary: This course is concerned with the thennalhydraulic design of the process systems that are required to transport heat energy away from the nuclear reactor source and transform this heat energy into useful work (generally electrical energy).

CANDU Origins and Evolution, by Gordon L.Brooks and John S. Foster, AECL, 01/02/2001. Doc type: Paper.
Summary: While the name 'CANDU' was not adopted until the 1960's, the CANDU program can be considered to have started in early 1954. At that time, a team, called the Nuclear Power Group, was established to undertake studies intended to identify a potential Canadian nuclear power system. While the team operated under the auspices of AECL and was located in Building 456 at AECL's Chalk River Laboratory, its membership was drawn from a cross-section of Canadian utility and industrial organizations supported, as required, with "nuclear" expertise provided by AECL staff.
