Award List:

SEISMIC PRA

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Budnitz
Award Amount: $50,000.00

SEISMIC PRA

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Budnitz
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
Techniques have recently been developed for probabilistic analysis of the risk from earthquake-initiated accidents at nuclear power reactors. these techniques are now beginning to be applied as parts of larger pra studies. however, the results of applying these seismic pra techniques are still… More

OF GLYCEROL FROM DANALIELLA

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. william j. oswald , PROFESSOR OF PUBLIC HEALTH
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Though the development of large-scale production of mi microalgal biomass is well underway, an inexpensive, simple method of converting algae to liquid fuels has yet to be developed. the work proposed here seeks to investigate the fermentation to ethanol of glycerol derived from dunaliella, a… More

CERENKOV COUNTER APPLICATIONS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. marlo r. martin , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,874.00
Abstract:
Cerenkov counters are used for discriminating between carged particles having different velocities close to the speed of light. at low relativistic velocities, corresponding to particle energy-to-mass ratios of 0.8 or less, a variety of solid and liquid materials can be used having indices of… More

FOR RADIATIVE COOLING-

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. marlo r. martin , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,991.00
Abstract:
The low-temperature of the night sky, typically 8 degrees to 20 degrees celsius below that of the ambient air, potentially can be an important resource for the passive cooling of residential and commercial buildings. until now this resource has not been effectively exploited, largely because… More

"EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

"EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $135,000.00
Abstract:
Techniques have recently been developed to analyze the 'seismic margin' of a nuclear power plant using the hclpf concept (high confidence of a low probability of failure). starting with an earthquake level shosen for margin review, the technique determines whether the plant can or cannot 'withstand… More

EVAL OF RELIABILITY & USEFULNESS OF EXTERNAL-INITIATOR PRA METHODOLOGIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The discipline of external-initiator pra analysis is rela- tively less mature and less reliable than the corresponding internal-initiators pra analysis. these relative weaknesseshave made many decision-makers, in both industry and the nrcreluctant to use external-initiator pra results. the… More

SCOPING ANALYSIS OF LWR SHUTDOWN ACCIDENTS INITIATED BY EARTHQUAKES AND INTERNAL FIRES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Budnitz , President
Award Amount: $50,000.00

SCOPING ANALYSIS OF LWR SHUTDOWN ACCIDENTS INITIATED BY EARTHQUAKES AND INTERNAL FIRES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Budnitz , President
Award Amount: $274,909.00
Abstract:
There has recently been heightened concern for the possibility that nuclear power-plant accidents during shutdowns could be important contributors to the overall risk profile of these plants. the 1986 soviet accident at chernobyl was the principal event that led to this heightened concern, but a few… More

DEVELOPMENT OF A METHODOLOGY FOR ANALYZING PRECURSORS TO EARTHQUAKE-INITIATED AND FIRE-INITIATED ACCIDENT SEQUENCES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Dr Robert J Budnitz
Award Amount: $50,000.00

DEVELOPMENT OF A METHODOLOGY FOR ANALYZING PRECURSORS TO EARTHQUAKE-INITIATED AND FIRE-INITIATED ACCIDENT SEQUENCES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NRC
Principal Investigator: Dr Robert J Budnitz
Award Amount: $187,573.00
Abstract:
Although the asp (accident sequence precursor) methodology for analyzing operational data and events for precursors to severe accidents has been in existence for about a decade, it does not now incorporate the analysis of precursors to earthquake-initiated and internal-fire-initiated accident… More
