  2. ASSESSMENT OF SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES FOR CONVENTIONAL ANDADVANCED LWRS

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

    A RESEARCH PROJECT IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE SUITABILITY OF NEWLY DEVELOPED SMART SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES FOR BOTH OF THEFOLLOWING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT APPLICATIONS: MANAGEMENT OF AGING DEGRADATION OF SAFETY SYSTEM TEMPERATUREAND PRESSURE SENSORS IN CONVENTIONAL LWRS SMART TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE SENSORS FOR ADVANCED LWRS. THE PROJECT WILL ADDRESS BOTH THE CALIBRATION DRIFT AND RESPONSE TIME DEGRADA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  3. GENERALIZED MODELING OF CONDENSATION FOR REACTOR APPLICATION

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    A CONSTITUTIVE PACKAGE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE MODELING OFDIRECT CONTACT CONDENSATION IN ADVANCED COMPUTER CODES FOR NUCLEAR REACTOR ANALYSIS. SINCE CURENT APPROACHES ARE BUILT UPON FLOW REGIME MAPS WHICH DO NOT ACCOUNT FOR CON DENSATION EFFECTS, PRESENT ADVANCED THERMAL/HYDRAULIC CODES ARE UNABLE TO MODEL COLD LEG FLOW BEHAVIOR CONSISTENTLY DURING CONDENSATION, ESPECIALLY IF THE FLOW IS OSCILLA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1986 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  4. INTERGRATING FIBER OPTIC RADIATION DOSIMETER

    SBC: Quantix Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF EMPLOYING ELECTRON TRAPPING (ET) MATERIALS WITH FIBER OPTICS FILAMENTS FOR USE AS MICROPROBE RADIATION DOSIMETERS.THE ET MATERIALS TM CAN BE INTERROGATED BY NEAR-INFRARED TO PRODUCE VISIBLE OUTPUT SCALABLE TO RADIATION DOSES AT THE FIBER TIP. PHASE I WILL ASSESS THE PERFORMANCE OF SUCH MATERIALS AS MICROPORBE RADIATION DETECTORS INTEGRATED W ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  5. EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE SENSORS FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

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

    AS A RESULT OF RECENT PROBLEMS SUCH AS THE OIL LOSS PHENOMENON IN SOME MODELS OF ROSEMOUNT PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS, THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY HAS BECOME INTERESTED IN FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS. THESE TRANSMITTERS ARE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES TO REPLACE THE EXISTING PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS IN THE SAFETY AND NON-SAFETY SYSTEMS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. FURTHERMORE, FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS MAY BE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1995 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  6. DEGRATION OF NUCLEAR PLANT TEMPERATURE SENSORS

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

    SAFETY SYSTEM TEMPERATURE SENSORS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE SUBJECT TO PERFORMANCE DEGRATION BECAISE PF AGING EFFECTS. A PROGRAM OF LABORATORY TESTING AND IN-SITU TESTINGIS NEEDED TO ENSURE THAT AGING DOES NOT LEAD TO REDUCED SAFETY AND AVAILABILITY. MUCH OF THE TECHNOLOGY NEEDED FOR THIS PROGRAM NOW EXISTS AS ISOLATED METHODS AND PROCEDURES. THESE WILL BE USED IN THIS PROJECT TO PERFORM AN AGIN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  7. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  8. ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER UTILIZATION IN CONTROL ROOM FOR SURVEILLANCE OF PLANT SAFETY

    SBC: Dynatrek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRINCIPAL SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE FOR A BC-CONTROLLER WHOSE PURPOSE IS TO SUPPLY AND CONSTANTLY UPDATE THE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS (BC) TO AN ON-LINE PLANT ANALYZER, ENABLING IT TO FAITHFULLY TRACK A NUMBER OF THE CONTINUOUSLY MEASURED PLANT PARAMETERS. THE BC-CONTROLLER SAMPLES PLANT MEASUREMENTS FROM THE PLANT COMPUTER MEMORY. THE PLANT ANALYZER, IN TURN, PROVIDES D ...

    SBIR Phase II 1985 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. EFFECT OF AGING ON RESPONSE TIME OF NUCLEAR PLANT PRESSURE SENSORS

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

    PERIODIC RESPONSE TIME TESTING HAS BEEN PERFORMED FOR THE PAST TWELVE YEARS ON THE SAFETY SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSORS IN MANY NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS ARE NOT RELIABLE FOR ASSESSMENT OF AGING EFFECTS. THEIS BECAUSE INADEQUATE METHODS AND PROCEDURES HAVE BEEN USED IN PERFORMING THE MAJORITY OF THE TESTS. THIS PROPOSAL OFFFERS AN EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH PROJECT TO PROVIDE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  10. 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 ...
