The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  3. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: KALSI ENGINEERING, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  4. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  5. TWO NEW NDE TECHNIQUES FOR INSPECTION OF CONTAINMENT WELDS BENEATH COATINGS

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INSPECTION OF PAINTED OR COATED CARBON STEEL SURFACES OFTEN INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF THE COATING PRIOR TO INSPECTION, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE USE OF MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MT) IS REQUIRED. IN THE CASE OF EXAMINATION OF CONTAINMENT VESSEL WALLS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, THE REMOVAL IS TIME CONSUMING, RESULTING IN INCREASED RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. IN ADDITION, THE REMOVAL MUST BE DONE WITHOUT C ...

  6. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

  7. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...

  8. LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT SIMULATION MODEL/CODE

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT MODEL/CODE FOR THE NRC. THIS CODE WOULD BE USED TO SIMULATE THE MOVEMENT, DISPERSION, DECAY, AND DEPOSITION OF RADIONUCLIDES RELEASED FROM SEVERE NUCLEAR REACTOR ACCIDENTS, SUCH AS THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT. IT IS DESIRED THAT ALL RELEVANT PHYSICAL AND CHEMICA ...

  9. REMOTE AERIAL INSPECTION OF BRIDGES

    SBC: Aca Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OF THE OVER 600,000 HIGHWAY BRIDGES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 RAILROAD BRIDGES IN THE U.S., MANY ARE DIFFICULT TO INSPECT BECAUSE OF LIMITED ACCESSIBILITY. REMOTE INSPECTIONBY UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES MAY PROVIDE A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, BUT INVOLVES CONSIDERATIONS OF VEHICLE SUITABILITY (HELICOPTER, BLIMP DUCTED FAN VEHICLE), THE BRIDGE LOCAL ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT, AND THE TYPE OF CONTROL (R ...

  10. THE USE OF NEW MATERIALS FOR ROADSIDE SAFETY HARDWARE

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NEW MATERIALS ARE BEING DEVELOPED EVERYDAY AND ARE REVOLUTIONIZING PRODUCTS AND PROCESSES AT AN ASTOUNDING RATE. IN RECENT YEARS, THE ROADSIDE SAFETY APPURTENANCE FIELD HAS BEEN AFFECTED AS WELL, AS NEW MATERIALS HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO PRODUCE IMPROVED DESIGNS IN A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS. IN RECENT YEARS PLASTICS, CERAMICS, HIGH STRENGTH FIBERS AND COMPOSITES HAVE BECOME MORE WIDELY USED IN INDUSTRY ...
