  1. HYDROGEN GENERATION AND BLANKETING ASSESSMENT FOR SEVERE ACCIDENTS

    SBC: ENGINEERING SCIENCE ANALYSIS CORP            Topic: N/A

    THE ACCIDENT AT TMI DEMONSTRATED THAT LARGE QUANTITIES OF HYDROGEN CAN BE GENERATED AS A RESULT OF ZIRCONIUM-STEAM OXIDATION REACTION, WHICH POSES A HYDROGEN BURN THREAT IN LWR CONTAINMENTS. THE RATES AT WHICH THE CORE HEATS UP AND WHICH HYDROGEN IS GENERATED DEPENDS UPON THE ZIRONIUM-STEAM REACTION RATE, WHICH IN TURN IS INFLUENCED BY LOCAL STEAM SMSTARVATION AND HYDROGEN BLANKETING EFFECTS. THE ...

  3. BASED ON HEAT RELEASE MONITORING: A DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

    SBC: Geoscience Ltd            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM CONSISTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TECHNIQUE AND A SYSTEM TO MEASURE THE RADIOACTIVE DECAY OF OF RADWASTE CONTAINED IN STORAGE CANISTERS, CASKS AND VAULTS. THE SYSTEM BEING CONSIDERED DEALS WITH THE DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF THE AFTERHEAT BEING GENERATED IN THE RADWASTEVOLUMES. THE SYSTEM TO BE USED TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH MEASURE MENTS CONSISTS OF A HEAT FLUX SENSOR ENVELOPE THAT SURROU ...

  4. TECHNIQUES FOR LONG TERM HOLDING AND CULTURE OF AMERICAN LOBSTERS

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    UNFORTUNATELY, TECHNICAL AND BIOLOGICAL PROBLEMS INVLOVED INTHE LONG-TERM HOLDING OF LOBSTERS OFTEN RESULT IN DEGRADATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY AND SUBSTANTIAL LOSSES DUE TOMORTALITY. MUCH OF THE MORTALITY IN POUNDING OPERATIONS IS CAUSED BY THE UNCONTROLLED MOLTING OF LOBSTERS AND POOR NUTRITION. THIS STUDY SEEKS TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS BY INVESTIGATING THE FEASIBILITY OF INHIBITING MOLT PROCESSES A ...

  5. ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA.

    SBC: Pickard, Lowe & Garrick Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA. IN THIS WORK, FORMAL MODELS FOR USING THE OPINIONS OF SINGLE AND MULTIPLE EXPERTS WILL BE EVALUATED INLIGNT OF EMPIRICAL DATA. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO SEE TO WHAT EXTENT THE EMPIRICAL DATA "VALIDATES" THE EXPERTS' ESTIMATES, AS WELL AS THE MODELS USED FOR ANALYZING SUCH ...

  6. METHODS TO UNDERSTAND AND ANALYZE AGING EFFECTS

    SBC: Sea Consultants            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO DEVELOP AN ACCURATE, ANALYTICAL REPRESENTATION OF THE EQUIPMENT AGING PROCESS, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECTS OF TTHE AGING PHENOMENON MUST BE UNDERSTOOD. FOR COMPLEX EQUIP MENT, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECT CAN BE DETERMINED BY PARTITION ING THE EQUIPMENT INTO SMALLER REPLACEABLE PARTS, DEFINING THE AGING AFFECTRS ON THE PARTS, AND THEN COMBINING THE PARTLEVEL EFFECTS TO REFLECT THE ASSEMBLED EQUI ...

  8. METHODS

    SBC: Structural Analysis            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEACH IS TO IMPROVE THE SAFETY OF THE PIPING SYSTEMS SUBJECTED TO LOADINGS WITH A WIDE RANGE OF FREQUENCY CONTENT (E.G. PRESSURIZED THERMAL SHOCK, WATER HAMMER, AND SEISMIC LOADINGS). THIS WILL BE DONE BY SHOWING THAT THE SAFETY OF THE PIPING SYSTEMS CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED BY USING NONLINEAR (INELASTIC) PROCEDURES BECAUSE OF UTILIZATION OF THE SIGNIFICANT ADDIT ...

  9. HIGHLY ACCURATE HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS USING DIFFERENTIAL GPS

    SBC: Theory & Applications Unlimite            Topic: N/A

    HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS REQUIRE A HIGH LEVEL OF ACCURACY FOR T THE VESSEL POSITION AND ATTITUDE. THE POSITION ACCURACY CAN BE PROVIDED BY THE GPS SYSTEM USING DIFFERENTIAL TECHNIQUES,WHILE THE ATTITUDE CAN BE PROVIDED EITHER BY INCLINOMETERS OOR BY THE GPS COMBINED WITH INTERFEROMETRIC TECHNIQUES. THISSTUDY WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF SUCH A SYSTEM, DE DEVELOP THE NECESSARY ALGORITHMS AND SIMUL ...
