  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 ...

  2. 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.

  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. VERIFICATION OF STEEL PLACEMENT IN PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE USING SHORT-PULSE RADAR TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Bomar Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR A RAPID, NON-DESTRUCTIVE METHOD TO TEST FOR PROPER STEEL PLACEMENT IN PORTLAND CEMENT PAVEMENTS. ISTHE GOAL OF THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING SHORT-PULSE, GROUND-PENETRATING RADAR AS A MEANS OF RAPID STEEL LOCATION IN CONCRETE PAVEMENT. A GENERAL BACKGROUND IN GROUND-PENETRATING RADAR THEORY IS PRESENTED. LABORATORY AND FIELD MEASUREMENTS USING A ...

  5. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATION FOR REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS TO IMPROVE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS WHILE AVOIDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFC'S) IN FOAM INSULATION CURRENTLY BEING USED. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS, CURRENTLY UNDER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, DO NOT CONTAIN CFC'S AND HAVE VERYHIGH THERM ...

  6. STUDY AND EVALUATION OF FIBER REINFORCED DOWELL BARS FOR USEIN HIGHWAYS

    SBC: Etc Engineers Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOWEL BARS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USED AS AN IMPORTANT LOADTRANSFER MECHANISM ON OUR FEDERAL HIGHWAYS. A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM OCCURRS WITH THE USE OF THESE BARS DUE TO RUST AND RESULTANT SPALLING AND CRACKING CONCRETE. COMPOSITE REINFORCING BARS (CRB) HAVE BECOME WIDELY USED FOR CRACK CONTROL IN MANY REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES EXPOSED TO AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS. A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DATA IS AVA ...
