  1. "EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED TO ANALYZE THE 'SEISMIC MARGIN' OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT USING THE HCLPF CONCEPT (HIGH CONFIDENCE OF A LOW PROBABILITY OF FAILURE). STARTING WITH AN EARTHQUAKE LEVEL SHOSEN FOR MARGIN REVIEW, THE TECHNIQUE DETERMINES WHETHER THE PLANT CAN OR CANNOT 'WITHSTAND THE REVIEW-EARTHQUAKE WITHOUT CORE DAMAGE. HERE 'WITHSTAND' MEANS 'WITHSTAND WITH A HIGH CONFIDENCE ...

  2. "SEVERE ACCIDENT PHENOMENA: NATURAL CIRCULATION IN REACTOR COOLANT SYSTEM"

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A VALIDATED METHODOLOGY FOR PREDICTING THE EX-VESSEL BUOYANCY-DRIVEN FLOWS IN THE HOT LEG AND STEAM GENERATOR OF A WESTINGHOUSE PLANT, AND IN THE CANDY CANE HOT LEG OF A B&W PLANT. THE PROPOSED PHASE I WORK PLAN CONSISTS OF (A) REVIEWING AVAILABLE WESTINGHOUSE EXPERIMENTAL DATA AND SIMULATING THE EXPERIMENTAL CONFIGURATION, (B) VALIDATING THE M ...

  3. A FAST AND SIMPLE METHOD FOR COMPUTING THE EFFECTS OF GEOMETRY ON IMPULSE

    SBC: Sunol Sciences Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN ANALYTIC MODEL IS DEVELOPED FOR COMPUTING THE BLOWOFF IMPULSE DISTRIBUTION ON SMALL BODIES. CORRELATIONS ARE MADE BETWEEN MODEL PREDICTIONS AND UGT DATA. THE MODEL IS SIMILAR IN PHYSICAL BASIS, SPEED, AND SIMPLICITY TO THE BBAY FORMULATION FOR ONE-DIMENSIONAL BLOWOFF IMPULSE. AN GT AND UGT EXPERIMENT TECHNIQUE IS DEVELOPED SPECIFICALLY TO SUBSTANTIATE THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL MODELS AND TO PROVIDE D ...

  4. A FIRST PRINCIPLE APPROACH TO MULTIPLE HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ENVIRONMENTAL DISTURBANCES PRODUCED BY HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS ARE WIDESPREAD AND PERSISTENT. DATA FROM ATMOSPHERIC TESTS (LATE 50'S, EARLY 60'S) PLUS EXTENSIVE RESEARCH EFFORTS ARE THE BASIC FOR UNDERSTANDING THE NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENT AND RESULTANT SYSTEMS EFFECTS. HOWEVER, ALL NUCLEAR TESTS AND MOST SUBSEQUENT BASIC RESEARCH HAVE INVOLVED ONLY SINGLE EXPLOSIONS. BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE ...

  5. AGING PROCESSES IN NUCLEAR REACTORS

    SBC: Pdi Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    AS NUCLEAR PLANTS GROW OLDER, ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS MAY AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF PLANT CONCRETE AND STEEL STRUCTURES. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A STRATEGY WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO CONCRETE STRUCTURES. IT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDSTHE DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS TO ANALYZE AND UNDERSTAND AGING EFFECTS, INCLUDING THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF TIME, TEMPERATURE, RADIATION, HUMIDITY, STRESS, CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT AN ...

  6. APPLICATION OF ADVANCED COMPUTER RESOURCES TO PLASMA PHYSICS CODES

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AT PRESENT, COMPUTERS ARE AVAILABLE WITH ENORMOUS QUANTITIES OF CORE STORAGE AND EXTREMELY FAST COMPUTATIONAL CAPABILITIES AS COMPARED WITH COMPUTERS JUST A FEW YEARS OLD. IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO, EVEN MORE DRAMATIC INCREASES IN MEMORY AND COMPUTATIONAL SPEED WILL BECOME AVAILABLE. OF IMPORTANCE TO DNA/RAAE IS THE FACT THAT THESE NEW COMPUTERS WILL ALLOW THE CALCULATION OF HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR WE ...

  7. AUTOMATIC CREATION AND RENODALIZATION OF TRAC-BWR INPUT DECKS

    SBC: Expert-ease Systems            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO BUILD A USER-FRIENDLY, PERSONAL COMPUTER BASED WORKSTATION FOR PERFORMING TRAC-BWR ANALYSIS. THE SOFTWARE WILL ALLOW A USER TO READ-IN DATA FROM EXISTING TRAC-BWR INPUT DECKS (ASCII), DRAW NODALIZATION DIAGRAM, MODIFY INPUT, AUTOMATICALLY RENODALIZE THE VESSEL, CHAN AND PIPE COMPONENTS, GENERATE INPUT DECK, SUBMIT JOB, BRING BACK PLOTDATA, DISPLAY RESUL ...

  10. DUSTY FLOW PRESSURE GAUGE DESIGN ANALYSIS

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF GAS DYNAMIC FLOW PROPERTY MEASUREMENT IN PARTICLE LADEN FLOWS IS ADDRESSED VIA AN ADVANCED NUMERICAL MODEL SIMULATION STUDY OF PRESSURE GAUGE RESPONSE. THE APPROACH UTILIZES A HIGH-ORDER ACCURATE NUMERICAL SOLUTION TECHNIQUE FOR TURBULENT TWO-PHASE FLOWS. GAUGES OF EXISTING DESIGN SUCH AS THE GREG/SNOB GAUGES WILL BE ANALYZED OVER A RANGE OF CLEAN AND DUSTY AIRBLAST FLOW ENVIRONMENT ...
