  1. COMPUTERIZED EMERGENCY OPERATION PROCEDURES RESEARCH

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF PHASE I OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO CRITICALLY REVIEW THE EXISTING COMPUTERIZED EOP SYSTEMS FOR BOTH PWR AND BWR PLANTS, DEVELOPED BY VARIOUS NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THEIR ADVANTAGES, DISADVANTAGES AND LIMITATIONS IN TERMS OF THEIR IMPACT ON OPERATORS PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY AND RECOMMEND ONE SYSTEM OR A COMPOSITE OF SEVERAL SYSTEMS, BEFOR ...

  2. REAL-TIME COLLECTION OF OPERATIONAL DATA TO SUPPORT RISK-BASED OPERATION REGULATION AND INSPECTIONS AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTERIZED DATA COLLECTION DEVICES EXIST AND ARE BEING USED IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS AT SOME NPPS FOR SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT NOT INSTRUMENTED IN THE CONTROL ROOM. HOWEVER, CURRENT APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY ARE RATHER SPORADIC AND NOT EXPLOITING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL DIFFERENT NPPS USE SUCH SYSTEMS FOR SINGLE- PURPOSES SUCH AS TRENDS IN EQUIPMEN ...

  3. AN ADAPTING FINITE ELEMENT MODEL FOR UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A TWO-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL BASED ON A HYBRID FINITE ELEMENT METHOD WITH MESH ADAPTATION IS PROPOSED TO CALCULATE GROUNDWATER FLOW AND POLLUTANT TRANSPORT IN UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA. THE ALGORITHM IS MODIFIED TO ENHANCE COMPUTATIONAL SPEED AND STORAGE, AND INCORPORATES PETROV-GALERKIN WEIGHTING FOR THE ADVECTION TERMS. NONLINEARITIES ASSOCIATED WITH UNSATURATED SOIL PROPERTIES, ATMOSPHERIC ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF TOOLS FOR SAFETY ANALYSIS OF CONTROL SOFTWARE IN ADVANCED REACTORS

    SBC: Advanced Systems Concepts            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL EXECUTE AN INDEPTH STUDY OF THE BASIC FEATURES OF EMBEDDED SYSTEM AND PLANT PROCESS SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ITS INTERACTIONS WITH THE HARDWARE SYSTEMS THAT IT IS INTENDED TO CONTROL AND REGULATE. THE PURPOSE OF SUCH A STUDY WILL BE TO IDENTIFY THE PROCEDURES AND ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES, TO BE INTEGRATED IN AN EMBEDDED SYSTEM SOFTWARE ANALYSIS METHODOLOGY, THAT CAN BE OF GREATEST UTILI ...

  5. ADVANCED METHODS FOR MODELING TEAM EFFECTS ON CONTROL-ROOM OPERATOR PERFORMANCE IN REAL-TIME

    SBC: ASCA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH SEEKS THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF A MODEL THAT REPRESENTS THE GROUP DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES TAKING PLACE INSIDE THE CONTROL ROOM OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT UNDER BOTH NORMAL AND ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. COGNITIVE DECISIONS, TEAM EFFECTS, AND DYNAMIC FEATURES ARE AMONG THE MAJOR ISSUES THAT WILL BE ADDRESSED IN THE PROJECT. THE BASIC TOOL TO BE USED IS THE INFLUENCE DIA ...

  7. AN IMMUNOADSORBENT METHOD FOR SEGREGATING FISH SPERM CELLS

    SBC: Berkeley Antibody Company            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MANY PROBLEMS OF FISH PRODUCTION IN CAPTIVITY IS THE PREDICTABLE GENERATION OF ALL-FEMALE AND ALL-MALE POPULATIONS OF FISH. A NUMBER OF METHODS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR PRODUCING EITHER PREDOMINATLY MALE OR PREDOMINATLY FEMALE POPULATIONS, ALTHOUGH MOST ARE NOT TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE OUTSIDE OF THE RESEARCH LABORATORY, OR THE TEATMENTS RENDER THE FISH UNUSABLE AS A FOOD PRODUCT. WE PLAN TO ...

  8. A 50 MHZ SURFACE WAVE SCATTEROMETER FOR THE EVALUATION OF MACHINED CERAMIC SURFACES

    SBC: General Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MACHINING GENERATES SUBSURFACE CRACKS THAT CA GROW AND LEAD TO THE FRACTURE OF MACHINED PARTS. IT IS THUS IMPORTANT TO MEASURE THE DAMAGE DUE TO MACHINING. SUCH A MEASUREMENT COULD BE USED TO IMPROVE MACHINING METHODS, AND FOR EHT NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF MACHINED PARTS. THE TECHNIQUE WE PROPOSE IS BASED ON USING SCATTERED ULTRASONIC SURFACE WAVES TO MEASURE THE SIZE AND DISTRACTION OF ...

  9. LOW COST ACOUSTIC SENSORS SUITABLE FOR HIGH DENSITY ARRAY DEPLOYMENT

    SBC: Optiphase, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OUR PROPOSAL DEFINES A DETAILED APPROACH TO DEVELOP A HIGH DENSITY ACOUSTIC ARRAY TO MONITOR AMBIENT ACOUSTIC CONDITIONS. WE PROPOSE AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH INVOLVING PASSIVE INTERROGATION OF FIBER OPTIC INTERFEROMETRIC SENSORSWHICH REQUIRE NO ELECTRONICS TO OPERATE THE TELEMETRY OR SENSORS. THE PROPOSED CONFIGURATION UTILIZING RUGGED SILICAMATERIALS IS CAPABLE OF HIGH ACCURACY OVER SEVERE ENVIRONM ...

  10. PLASMON RESONATOR SCANNING NEAR FIELD OPTICAL MICROSCOPY

    SBC: Park Scientific Inst            Topic: N/A

    PARK SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS (PSI) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SCANNING NEAR FIELD OPTICAL MICROSCOPE (SNOM) THAT WILL BE CAPABLE OF WRITING AND ADDRESSING BITS STORED IN BACTERIORHODOPSIN FILMS AT TERABIT/CM(2) DENSITIES. THE SNOM WILL ACHIEVE 10 NM SPATIAL RESOLUTION BY USING A PLASMON RESONATOR (PR) AG NANOPARTICLE WHICH SERVES TO BOTH ENHANCE THE OPTICAL SCATTERING CROSS SECTION, AND TO LOCALIZE THE ...
