  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. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shielding

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA17012

    State-of-the-art COTS microelectronics are often found to be susceptible to radiation and systems are required to be redesigned with a new electronic piece-part or multiple kilogram metal shielding.These modifications increase weight, size, costs, and schedule to the program. Space Micro will design 3D printed radiation shields based on our modeling/simulation tools and then leverage existing comm ...

  4. ADVANCED SOLID STATE NEUTRON DETECTOR DEVELOPMENT FOR NPB MASS DISCRIMINATION

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF ADVANCED FAST-NEUTRON SENSORS BASED ON THE CONVERTER/METAL-OXIDE-SILICON-CAPACITOR (MOSC) APPROACH IS PROPOSED. THE SENSORS PROMISE IMPROVED TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS AS COMPONENTS OF THE NEUTRAL PARTICLE BEAM (NPB) MASS DISCRIMINATION SYSTEM BEING DEVELOPED BY SDIO. THE GOAL OF THE OVERALL PROJECT IS TO CONSTRUCT AND EXPERIMENTALLY EVALUATE PRO ...

  5. AGILE LASER IMAGER

    SBC: Sparta, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVE OPTICAL IMAGING SENSORS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED FOR STRATEGIC DEFENSE MISSIONS, INCLUDING TRACKING, DISCRIMINATION, AND AIMPOINT SELECTION. IN EACH OF THESE SYSTEM CONCEPTS, FOUR OUTSTANDING PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN PRESENT. THESE ARE: THE EXTREMELY LARGE OPTICS SIZE REQUIRED, THE ANGULAR AGILITY REQUIRED FOR BOTH THE TRANSMITTER AND THE RECEIVER, SYSTEM SURVIVABILITY, AND THE SHORT-WAVELENGTH HIGH ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. 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. CALCULATION OF THE ANGULAR SPECTRUM OF THE COHERENT HARMONICS RADIATED IN THE FREE ELECTRON LASER

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE MEANS FOR REDUCING THE HARMONIC POWER RADIATED BY THE FEL. THIS REQUIRES FIRST AN ANALYTIC FORMULATION OF THE ANGULAR AND SPECTRAL DEPENDENCE OF THE INTENSITY FOR THE CONSTANT PERIOD AND TAPERED UNDULATORS, BOTH IN THE LINEAR POLARIZED AND THE CIRCULAR POLARIZED CONFIGURATIONS. WE PROPOSE TO PERFORM THIS CALCULATION IN THE PHASE I EFFORT AND TO GENERATE EXPRESSIONS WH ...
