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.

  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 ...

  8. OPERATOR-BASED METRIC FOR NUCLEAR OPERATIONS AUTOMATION ASSESSMENT

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP, IMPLEMENT, AND EVALUATE AN OPERATOR-BASED METRIC FOR ASSESSING FUTURE CONTROL ROOM AUTOMATION SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL NUCLEAR PLANT OPERATIONS. THE FOCUS WILL BE ON AUTOMATION'S IMPACT ON OPERATOR UNDERLOAD AND SITUATION AWARENESS (SA). THE APPROACH COMBINES AN OPERATOR/SYSTEM BEHAVIORAL REPRESENTATION IMPLEMENTEDIN SOFTWARE, WITH A PROCEDURAL METH ...

  9. IMPROVED STEADY-STATE INITIALIZATION ALGORITHMS FOR COMPUTER CODES

    SBC: Compu Simulation & Anal I            Topic: N/A

    CSA PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT A STEADY-STATE SOLUTION FOR THE COMPLETE SYSTEM OF EQUATIONS SOLVED IN EITHER THE TRAC/PF1, TRAC/BD1, OF RELAP5 CODES. THE STEADY-STATE SOLUTION WILL UTILIZE THE STEADY-STATE FORM OF THE MODEL EQUATIONS AND WILL UTILIZE EXISTING EQUATION SOLVERS TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE. ALL TIME-DEPENDENT CONSTITUTIVE AND COMPONENT MODELS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE SOLUTION TO ENSU ...

  10. SEISMIC MONITORING SYSTEM FOR LOCAL AND REGIONAL NETWORK

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM FOR MONITORING LOCAL AND REGIONAL SEISMIC EVENTS IS PROPOSED. THIS AUTOMATED SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE MANY OF THE ADVANCED SEISMIC ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN SPECIALIZED AND LARGE SYSTEMS FOR MONITORING UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. AMONG THE STATE-OF-THE-ART METHODOLOGIES WE WILL INTEGRATE INTO THE SYSTEM ARE THE NE ...
