  1. ENHANCED SIMULATOR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR OPERATORS AT MULTI-UNIT PLANTS.

    SBC: Corpe Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AT MULTI-UNIT NUCLEAR GENRATING STATIONS, CONTROL ROOM OPERATORS ARE GENERALLY LICENSED TO OPERATE ALL SIMILAR UNITS. SIMULATOR TRAINING CONDUCTED AT THE LICENSEE TRAINING FACILITY OCCURS ON ONE SIMULATOR WHICH MAY NOT EXACTLY MIMIC ANY UNIT. INADEQUATE TRAINING ON UNIT-TO-UNIT AND UNIT-TO-SIMULATOR DIFFERENCES, IN CONJUNCTION WITH LIMITED PER-PERSON SIMULATOR TRAINING HOURS, CAN RESULT IN INCREAS ...

  2. ROBUST, ACCURATE, NON-CONTACTING VIBRATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: EPOCH ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEN ROTATING MACHINERY DETERIORATES, VIBRTION PATTERSN CHANGE. WHEN BEARING FREQUENCIES APPEAR, THEN INCREASE IN AMPLITUDE, BEARING FAILURE LOOMS. THE SAME WITH VALVES; WHEN THEY LEAK, THEY VIBRATE. AS LEAKAGE INCREASES, THE VIBRATION PATTERN CHANGES. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS. THE KEY IS KNOWING WHERE AND HOW DEEPLY TO LOOK. THE KEY IN OLDER REACTOR PLANTS IS TO UNOBTRUSIVELY, ECONOMICALLY BACKFIT S ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED TECHNIQUES FOR DYNAMIC PRA

    SBC: Frh, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CHANGES IN PLANT STATUS, EITHER BEFORE OR DURING AN ACCIDENT SEQUENC CAN CONSIDERABLY AFFECT ITS OUTCOME; BOTH THE ACTURAL OUTCOME AND THAT PREDICTED BY PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY REPRESENT THE POSSIBLE ACCIDENTS AND THEIR PROBABILITIES, THE PRA MODEL MUST CONSIDER THE DYNAMIC CHARACTER OF THE PLANT, IT'S SYSTEMS AND OPERATORS. A LIVING, DYNAMIC PRA IS ONE IN WHICH ALL T ...

  4. SPECIAL MONITOR DETECTOR DEVELOPMENT FOR RESPIRATOR CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    IMPLEMENTATION OF AN INTEGRATED DETECTION SYSTEM FOR CONTAMINATION MONITORING OF RESPIRATORS HAS BEEN PROBLEMATIC. BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEX SURFACES, HAND MONITORING USING PORTABLE SURVEY INSTRUMENTATION HAS BEEN THE PREFERRED METHOD. HAND MONITORING IS COSTLY IN TIME AND OFTEN FAILS TO RELIABLY ACHIEVE A GIVEN DETECTION LIMIT BECAUSE OF VARIABLES SUCH AS SURVEY SPEED ANDDISTANCE FROM THE PROBE. THE ...

  6. A PORTABLE IMAGING SYSTEM FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DIFFICULTY IN PREDICTING STRUCTURAL DEGRADATION RATES FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS DUE TO CORROSION AND OTHER FACTORS HAS LED TO THE NEED FOR COSTLY, TIME CONSUMING INSPECTIONS AND INCREASED COST FROM INTENTIONALLY OVERDESIGNED COMPONENTS. THE SITUATION INDICATES A SERIOUS, UNMET NEED FOR A SIMPLE BUT ACCURATE SYSTEM FOR REAL- TIME, IN SITU, NONDESTRUCTIVE ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ...

  7. Prototype a Real-Time Distributed Gaming System Using HLA and SEDRIS

    SBC: ACUSOFT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AcuSoft proposes to research and develop a Synthetic Environment RTI (SE-RTI). The SEDRIS initiative has established a new programming paradigm that provides lossless transmission of synthetic environment objects. The HLA has been designed to support interoperability and reuse of DoD simulations, and SEDRIS is a major component of HLA. Currently, the SEDRIS data model, APIs and format are prima ...

  8. HLA Development Tools

    SBC: ACUSOFT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AcuSoft proposes to develop a set of HLA Development Tools to assist simulation software developers in their efforts to implement the HLA. The HLA Development Tools will support the Federation Execution and Development Process (FEDEP) and present an approach to solving the problems associated with the HLA's flexible FOM data definitions. A set of data visualization tools, such as a 2D Plan View ...

  10. Database Conversion Software

    SBC: ACUSOFT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AcuSoft proposes to research and develop a database conversion tool based on the Synthetic Environment Data Representation and Interchange Specification (SEDRIS) to maximize the reusability and interchangeability of existing and future USSOCOM database. In the proposed PHASE I effort, we will investigate SEDRIS technology and develop a functioning prototype tools to demonstrate the ability to imp ...
