Fukushima and Chernobyl
A Memorial - April 2011
I recommend the following conference book for people
who want to understand safety aspects and get
views and technical background information on
the accident in the nuclear power plants of Fukushima
The Fukushima Dai-Ichi Accident
edited by P.B. Ladkin, C. Goeker, and B. Sieker
published in 2013, by LIT Verlag
The book is based on an interdisciplinary workshop
on "System Engineering" that took place in Bielefeld
in August 2011. Participants were mainly system-safety
engineers, software engineers, and sociologist.
Included is a short essay by sociologist Stefan
Strohschneider (from the FSU Jena).
The book is written in English; a translation to German
will likely never happen. Therefore I give the
description here also in English, only.
