    Any good chapters/sources to learn about the design, fluid/thermodynamics etc of these systems pertaining to nuclear reactors? So far I've been jumping around wiki..

    One would normally take a courses in thermodynamics, heat transport and fluid mechanics in preparation for a course on turbomachinery. Gas and steam turbine design is independent of the heat source, but depends on the inlet and exit conditions of the working fluid.
