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. DEVELOPMENT OF A DYNAMIC OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL TO SUPPORT RISK MANAGEMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ACTIVITY WITHIN THE NRC AND THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY SEEKS TO EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS OF PRA IN RISK-BASED APPROACHES TO RELIEVE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE ECONOMICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE ACCIDENT PREVENTION GROUP HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPT OF AN INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (IRMP) TOWARD SUCH GOALS. A KEY ELEMENT OF AN IRMP IS AN "OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL" OF THE NPP THA ...

  2. NEW SENSOR FOR MEASUREMENT OF AIR MOVEMENT

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS PREPARED IN DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE NRC'S SOLICITATION FOR AN IMPROVED DEVICE TO MEASURE AIR MOVEMENT FOR PERSONNEL RADIATION PROTECTION AND HEALTH PHYSICS APPLICATIONS IN NUCLEAR FACILITIES. THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW DEVICE IS TO PROPERLY LOCATE AIR SAMPLERS SO THAT THE AIR SAMPLED IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE AIR INHALED BY WORKERS. ALTHOUGH AIR FLOW RATE SENSORS SUCH AS ANEMOMETERS ARE ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  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 ...

  9. SMART WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS FOR UNDERGROUND ENTOMBMENT FACILITIES

    SBC: Guyer Santin, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO ADDRESS THE FEASIBILITY OF WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS AS A "SMART" MATERIAL CAPABLE OF BEING PLACED DURING CONSTRUCTION BUT NOT ACTIVATED UNTIL A THREAT EVENT OCCURS WHICH DEGRADES THE ORIGINAL WATERTIGHT INTEGRITY. WHEN SUCH DEGRADATION OCCURS, IT WILL EXPOSE THE WATER-REACTIVE GROUT TO GROUNDWATER. THIS WILL TRIGGER THE HARDENING PROCESS WHICH WILL AUTOMATICALLY AFFECT A EAL AT TH ...

  10. CONTROL ROOM INLEAKAGE TEST

    SBC: Lagus Applied Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIMPLIFIED RECONNAISSANCE-TYPE TEST IS PROPOSED THAT UTILIZES THE TECHNIQUES OF TRACER GAS VENTILATION TESTING TO QUANTIFY THE UNFILTERED AIR INLEAKAGE INTO AN OPERATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOM. THE TEST WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENCOMPASS THE FIVE BASIC TYPES OF CONTROL ROOM EMERGENCY VENTILATION SYSTEMS. A THOROUGH ERROR ANALYSIS WILL ALSO BE UNDERTAKEN. A DETAILED TESTING PROTOCOL SUITABL ...
