  1. 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 ...

  3. FACILITATE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF FAULT TREES

    SBC: Expert-ease Systems            Topic: N/A

    WORKSTATION AND EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES HAVE A POTENTIAL OF SUBSTANTIALLY FACILITATING THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATIONOF FAULT TREES. INTRODUCING A WORKSTATION PHILOSOPHY WITH AN INTERACTIVE SET OF INTEGRATED SOFTWARE TOOLS ON A LOCAL COMPUTER WILL PROMOTE IMPROVED CONTINUITY IN THE THOUGHT PROCESS DURING A FAULT TREE DEVELOPMENT. THE EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY WILL SIMPLIFY THE WAY FAULT TREES AR ...

  4. Handheld Liquid Particle Counter

    SBC: Hal Technology, LLC            Topic: DMEA182001

    The trend of microelectronic processing technology is for more advanced complex devices integrated in smaller size. Particles could become significantly more  prevalent as killer defects and have adverse effect on fabrication yield rate. Meanwhile, clean environment control requirements originally focused on particles in the air have been extended to encompass liquids that come into direct conta ...

  5. High-brilliance Multi-Energy X-ray Source and Optics for Rapid IC Inspection

    SBC: Sigray, Inc.            Topic: DMEA162001

    This Phase II SBIR proposal aims to develop an x-ray illumination beam system comprising a dual-target x-ray source and a set of magnifying Wolter x-ray optics for use in laboratory-based integrated circuit (IC) inspection x-ray microscopes. Due to the increasing reliance on electronics for military systems and devices, a method to quickly analyze ICs in 3D is critical. X-ray microscopy enabled by ...

  6. IN-REACTOR MEASUREMENTS INVOLVING ELECTROCHEMICAL POTENTIAL A NUMBER OF BOILING WATER REACTORS (BWRS) SUGGEST THAT THE WATER CHEMISTRY OF THE PRIMARY COOLANT OF EACH BWR MAY BE UNIQUE WITH RESPECT TO ITS ABILITY TO FACILITATE IGSCC AND/ OR MAY CHANGE

    SBC: Michael Fox            Topic: N/A

    IN-REACTOR MEASUREMENTS INVOLVING ELECTROCHEMICAL POTENTIAL A NUMBER OF BOILING WATER REACTORS (BWRS) SUGGEST THAT THE WATER CHEMISTRY OF THE PRIMARY COOLANT OF EACH BWR MAY BE UNIQUE WITH RESPECT TO ITS ABILITY TO FACILITATE IGSCC AND/ OR MAY CHANGE WITH REACTOR OPERATING TIME OR AGE. THE WORK PROPOSED IS TO GATHER, REVIEW, ORGANIZE, COMPILE, C COMPUTERIZE, AND ANALYZE IN-REACTOR DATA PERTAINING ...

  7. Laser Dithering Device for Handheld Liquid Particle Measurements

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DMEA182001

    We propose a hand-held device that would be capable of measuring particles as small as 20 nm in liquid batches from semiconductor fabrication. The proposed system will overcome the complexities of existing in-line and batch sampling techniques and thus would reduce the operating time and cost of the fabrication process. The device will be small and easily portable and will not come in direct cont ...

  9. PROBABILITY OF FLOODS WITH VERY LONG RETURN PERIODS

    SBC: Linsley Kraeger Associates Ltd            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCEDURE FOR GENERATING LONG STREAMFLOW SEQUENCES. IT IS PROPOSED TO FIRST DEVELOP A LONG SEQUENCE OF HOURLY RAINFALL BY STOCHASTIC METHODS AND TO TRANSFORM THIS RAINFALL SEQUENCE INTO STREAMFLOW WITH A DETERMINISTIC HYDROLOGIC MODEL. PHASE I WILL FOCUS ON THE A STOCHASTIC RAINFALL MODEL CAPABLE OF DEVELOPING RAINFALL SEQUENCES AT MULTIPLE SITES. ...

  10. "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 ...
