  1. ENHANCED SIMULATOR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR OPERATORS AT MULTI-UNIT PLANTS.

    SBC: Corpe Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AT MULTI-UNIT NUCLEAR GENRATING STATIONS, CONTROL ROOM OPERATORS ARE GENERALLY LICENSED TO OPERATE ALL SIMILAR UNITS. SIMULATOR TRAINING CONDUCTED AT THE LICENSEE TRAINING FACILITY OCCURS ON ONE SIMULATOR WHICH MAY NOT EXACTLY MIMIC ANY UNIT. INADEQUATE TRAINING ON UNIT-TO-UNIT AND UNIT-TO-SIMULATOR DIFFERENCES, IN CONJUNCTION WITH LIMITED PER-PERSON SIMULATOR TRAINING HOURS, CAN RESULT IN INCREAS ...

  2. ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER UTILIZATION IN CONTROL ROOM FOR SURVEILLANCE OF PLANT SAFETY

    SBC: Dynatrek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRINCIPAL SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE FOR A BC-CONTROLLER WHOSE PURPOSE IS TO SUPPLY AND CONSTANTLY UPDATE THE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS (BC) TO AN ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER, ENABLING IT TO FAITHFULLY TRACK A NUMBER OF THE CONTINUOUSLY MEASURED PLANT PARAMETERS. THE BC-CONTROLLER SAMPLES PLANT MEASUREMENTS FROM THE PLANT COMPUTER MEMORY. THE PLANT ANALYZER, IN TURN, PROVIDES D ...

  4. HIGH SENSITIVITY URANIUM BIOASSAY

    SBC: Eastern Analytical Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DETERMINATION OF URANIUM IN THE URINE OF WORKERS IS REQUIRED BY THE NRC AT NUCLEAR FACILITIES. EXTREMELY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF URANIUM, ESPECIALLY IN SMALL SAMPLES, ARE DIFFICULT TO MEASURE USING EXISTING TECHNOLOGY. FUTURE NRC PLANS TO CHARACTERIZE BIOAVAILABLE URANIUM FRACTIONS COMPRISING THE URANIUM BODY BURDEN WILL REQUIRE EVEN HIGHER SENSITIVITIES. HIGH SENSITIVITY TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED FOR UR ...

  5. A FUZZY SET APPROACH FOR SEISMIC SAFETY MARGINS ASSESSMENT.

    SBC: Eda Consultants            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEVELOP A FUZZY SET METHODOLOGY FOR UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS IN PROBABILISTIC SEISMIC SAFETY ASSESSMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. FUZZY SET LOGIC WILL BEUSED FOR COLLECTING, QUANTIFYING AND PROPAGATING SUBJECTIVE,ENGINEERING JUDGEMENT USED IN THE UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS. IN PHASE I, FEASIBILITY OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY APPLYING IT TO SELECTED PARTS OF A PROBABI ...

  6. ROBUST, ACCURATE, NON-CONTACTING VIBRATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: EPOCH ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEN ROTATING MACHINERY DETERIORATES, VIBRTION PATTERSN CHANGE. WHEN BEARING FREQUENCIES APPEAR, THEN INCREASE IN AMPLITUDE, BEARING FAILURE LOOMS. THE SAME WITH VALVES; WHEN THEY LEAK, THEY VIBRATE. AS LEAKAGE INCREASES, THE VIBRATION PATTERN CHANGES. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS. THE KEY IS KNOWING WHERE AND HOW DEEPLY TO LOOK. THE KEY IN OLDER REACTOR PLANTS IS TO UNOBTRUSIVELY, ECONOMICALLY BACKFIT S ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED TECHNIQUES FOR DYNAMIC PRA

    SBC: Frh, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CHANGES IN PLANT STATUS, EITHER BEFORE OR DURING AN ACCIDENT SEQUENC CAN CONSIDERABLY AFFECT ITS OUTCOME; BOTH THE ACTURAL OUTCOME AND THAT PREDICTED BY PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY REPRESENT THE POSSIBLE ACCIDENTS AND THEIR PROBABILITIES, THE PRA MODEL MUST CONSIDER THE DYNAMIC CHARACTER OF THE PLANT, IT'S SYSTEMS AND OPERATORS. A LIVING, DYNAMIC PRA IS ONE IN WHICH ALL T ...

  8. USE OF CERAMIC FUEL CLADDING TO REDUCE THE SEVERITY OF LMR ACCIDENTS

    SBC: Gamma Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING CERAMIC CLADDING MATERIALS TO REPLACE THE METALLIC CLADDING MATERIALS NOW USED WITH WATER REACTOR FUEL. SHOULD FEASIBILITY BE DETERMINED, AND EVENTUALLY COMMERCIALIZED, THE ABILITY OF WATER REACTORS TO WITHSTAND SEVERE ACCIDENTS WOULD BE ENHANCED. WITH TODAYS METAL CLAD FUEL, A RELATIVELY SHORT TIME PERIOD IS AVAILABLE AFTER A LOSS OF COOLANT ACCI ...

  9. PREDICTION OF CHECK VALVE PERFORMANCE & DEGRADATION IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SYSTEMS

    SBC: KALSI ENGINEERING, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS AIMED AT DEVELOPING TECHNIQUES FOR PREDICTING CHECK VALVE PERFORMANCE AND ITS INTERNAL COMPONENTS DEGRADATION IN PRACTICAL PIPING SYSTEMS USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE EFFORT IS TO SYSTEMATICALLY EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF UPSTREAM DISTURBANCES WHICH ARE WITHIN 10 DIAMETERS UPSTREAM. BY USING A COMBINED THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH, GENERALIZED NONDIMENSI ...

  10. 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 ...
