  1. REAL-TIME COLLECTION OF OPERATIONAL DATA TO SUPPORT RISK-BASED OPERATION REGULATION AND INSPECTIONS AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTERIZED DATA COLLECTION DEVICES EXIST AND ARE BEING USED IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS AT SOME NPPS FOR SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT NOT INSTRUMENTED IN THE CONTROL ROOM. HOWEVER, CURRENT APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY ARE RATHER SPORADIC AND NOT EXPLOITING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL DIFFERENT NPPS USE SUCH SYSTEMS FOR SINGLE- PURPOSES SUCH AS TRENDS IN EQUIPMEN ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A DYNAMIC OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL TO SUPPORT RISK MANAGEMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ACTIVITY WITHIN THE NRC AND THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY SEEKS TO EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS OF PRA IN RISK-BASED APPROACHES TO RELIEVE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE ECONOMICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE ACCIDENT PREVENTION GROUP HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPT OF AN INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (IRMP) TOWARD SUCH GOALS. A KEY ELEMENT OF AN IRMP IS AN "OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL" OF THE NPP THA ...

  4. ADVANCED METHODS FOR MODELING TEAM EFFECTS ON CONTROL-ROOM OPERATOR PERFORMANCE IN REAL-TIME

    SBC: ASCA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH SEEKS THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF A MODEL THAT REPRESENTS THE GROUP DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES TAKING PLACE INSIDE THE CONTROL ROOM OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT UNDER BOTH NORMAL AND ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS. COGNITIVE DECISIONS, TEAM EFFECTS, AND DYNAMIC FEATURES ARE AMONG THE MAJOR ISSUES THAT WILL BE ADDRESSED IN THE PROJECT. THE BASIC TOOL TO BE USED IS THE INFLUENCE DIA ...

  6. OPERATOR-BASED METRIC FOR NUCLEAR OPERATIONS AUTOMATION ASSESSMENT

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP, IMPLEMENT, AND EVALUATE AN OPERATOR-BASED METRIC FOR ASSESSING FUTURE CONTROL ROOM AUTOMATION SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL NUCLEAR PLANT OPERATIONS. THE FOCUS WILL BE ON AUTOMATION'S IMPACT ON OPERATOR UNDERLOAD AND SITUATION AWARENESS (SA). THE APPROACH COMBINES AN OPERATOR/SYSTEM BEHAVIORAL REPRESENTATION IMPLEMENTEDIN SOFTWARE, WITH A PROCEDURAL METH ...

  8. EVAL OF RELIABILITY & USEFULNESS OF EXTERNAL-INITIATOR PRA METHODOLOGIES

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DISCIPLINE OF EXTERNAL-INITIATOR PRA ANALYSIS IS RELA- TIVELY LESS MATURE AND LESS RELIABLE THAN THE CORRESPONDING INTERNAL-INITIATORS PRA ANALYSIS. THESE RELATIVE WEAKNESSESHAVE MADE MANY DECISION-MAKERS, IN BOTH INDUSTRY AND THE NRCRELUCTANT TO USE EXTERNAL-INITIATOR PRA RESULTS. THE EXTER-NAL-INITIATOR ANALYSES HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED TOO UNCERTAIN, OR TOO CONSERVATIVE, OR SUPPORTED BY TOO LIT ...

  10. SMART WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS FOR UNDERGROUND ENTOMBMENT FACILITIES

    SBC: Guyer Santin, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO ADDRESS THE FEASIBILITY OF WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS AS A "SMART" MATERIAL CAPABLE OF BEING PLACED DURING CONSTRUCTION BUT NOT ACTIVATED UNTIL A THREAT EVENT OCCURS WHICH DEGRADES THE ORIGINAL WATERTIGHT INTEGRITY. WHEN SUCH DEGRADATION OCCURS, IT WILL EXPOSE THE WATER-REACTIVE GROUT TO GROUNDWATER. THIS WILL TRIGGER THE HARDENING PROCESS WHICH WILL AUTOMATICALLY AFFECT A EAL AT TH ...
