  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. EXTENDED FATIGUE LIFE EVALUATION METHODS FOR AGED LWR COMPONENTS

    SBC: O'donnell Consulting Engineers            Topic: N/A

    STRESSES DUE TO PRESSURE AND REPEATED THERMAL CYCLING CAUSE PROGRESSIVE MATERIAL DAMAGE DURING THE OPERATION OF LWR COMPONENTS AND PIPING SYSTEMS. THE PRESENT PRO POSED RESEARCH WOULD IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF EXISTING S- N FATIGUE EVALUATION METHODS BY COMBINING THEM WITH THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OF CRACK PROPAGATION AND FRACTURE MECH ANICS. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE CRACK PROPAG ...

  5. FUNCTIONAL CONDITION OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Pentek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PENTEK WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES IN A NUCLEAR POWERPLANT BASED ON THE MEASUREMTNT AND ANALYSIS OF IN-RUSH CURRENT. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEVELOPED SO THAT ALL MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE FROM OUTSIDE THE REACTOR BUILDING WITHOUT DISTRUBING ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. THE ANALYSIS METHODS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR ON-LINE USE WITH A PERSON ...
