  1. CHARACTERIZATION OF CONCRETE CONDITION USING ACOUSTIC TOMOGRAPHIC IMAGING

    SBC: Atkinson-noland Assoc. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESIDUAL LIFETIME EVALUATION OF EXISTING NUCLEAR FACILITIES REQUIRES DETAILED INFORMATION REGARDING CONDITION OF CONTAINMENT AND SUPPORT STRUCTURES. CURRENT NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS FOR SUBSURFACE EVALUATION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE USE COMPLEX EQUIPMENT AND RELY HEAVILY ON INTERPRETATION BY THE OPERATOR. A RESEARCH EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE THE USE OF COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHIC IMAGING FOR LOCATING ...

  3. COMMON CAUSE FAILURE ANALYSIS (CCFA) IS AN IMPORTANT ELEMENTOF A COMPLETE PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT (PRA) SINCE COMMON CAUSE FAILURE IS OFTEN A DOMINANT FACTOR IN THE RISK POSED TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ACCIDENTS.

    SBC: Jfb Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COMMON CAUSE FAILURE ANALYSIS (CCFA) IS AN IMPORTANT ELEMENTOF A COMPLETE PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT (PRA) SINCE COMMON CAUSE FAILURE IS OFTEN A DOMINANT FACTOR IN THE RISK POSED TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ACCIDENTS. A MAJOR PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH PERFORMING A CFFA IS THE ABSENCE OF SUPPORTING QUALITATIVE OR QUANTITATIVE COMPONENT FAILURE DATA. EXTENSIVE AMOUNTS OF CO ...

  4. DEV OF A LARGE CROSS SECTIONAL AREA SELF-POWERED DETECTOR

    SBC: K E M P CORP            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-POWERED RADIATION DETECTOR THAT CAN BE USED TO DETECTTHE SOURCE POSITION IN INDUSTRIAL RADIOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED. SELF-POWERED DETECTORS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USEDINFLUX MAPPING SYSTEMS IN NUCLEAR REACTORS BECAUSE OF THEIR SIZE, RUGGEDNESS AND SIMPLICITY. THIS DETECTOR CONCEP PROVIDES THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LARGECROSS SECTIONAL AREA DETECTORS THATCAN BE USED ...

  6. TASK NETWORK MODELING OF HUMAN OPERATIONS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOMS

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF AND, HOPEFULLY, VALIDATE THE USE OF TASK NETWORK MODELING TOSTUDY HUMAN FACTORS IN THE CONTROL ROOM. TASK NETWORK MODELING EXTENDS A HUMAN ENGINEERING TASK ANALYSIS INTO A COMPUTER MODEL. WE PROPOSE THAT PERTURBING THE INDIVIDUAL TASKS IN A TASK NETWORK MODEL IN A MANNER PREDICTED FROM CONTROL ROOM DESIGN CHANGES, TASK AUTOMATION, OR THE CO ...

  8. ROBOTICS APPLICATION FOR EXPOSURE REDUCTION

    SBC: Remotec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ASSESS THE STATE-OF-THE ART OF COMPUTERIZED ROBOTS TO DETERMINE WHETHER COST/ BENEFICIAL APPLICATIONS CAN BE MADE IN NUCLEAR PLANT MAINTENANCE AND IF SUCH APPLICATIONS ARE POSSIBLE, TO DEVELOP A PLAN TO SUBSTANTIATE THE COST/BENEFIT ANALYSIS AND TO IDENTIFY THE FACTORS, IF ANY, WHICH WOULD INHIBIT NEAR-TERM ADAPTION OF ROBOT TECHNOLOGY IN NUCLEAR PLANT MAINTENANCE ...

  10. QUANTIFICATION OF CONSERVATISMS IN SEISMIC RISK ESTIMATES THROUGH ENGINEERING ADVANCEMENT OF SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Risk Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT CONSERVATISM IN MODERN SEISMIC PRA DERIVES FROM SIMPLIFICATIONS IN GROUND-MOTION CHARACTERIZATION AT THE INTERFACE OF SEISMIC HAZARD AND FRAGILITY METHODOLOGIES. THIS CONSERVATISM ARISES BECAUSE A SINGLE COMPOSITE-MAGNITUDE, BROAD-BAND, GROUND-MOTION SPECTRUM IS USED TO DERIVE FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS, WHEREAS THE MAJORITY OF MOTIONS CONTRIBUTING TO SITE HAZARD HAVE (LESS-DAMAGING) NARROW-B ...
