  1. GAMMA RAY SPECTROMETER/DOSIMETER

    SBC: Applied Inventions Corp.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  2. 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 ...

  3. ENHANCED REMOVAL OF RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES BY FLUOROCARBON SURFACTANT SOLUTIONS

    SBC: Entropic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  4. ENHANCEMENT TO STEAM GENERATOR TUBING EDDY CURRENT INSPECTION BY APPLICATION OF THERMALLY INDUCED STRESSES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    STEAM GENERATOR TUBES REPRESENT A UNIQUE PART OF THE REACTOR COOLANT SYSTEM (RCS). LEAKAGE FROM ANY OTHER PART OF THE RCS IS CAPTURED BY THE CONTAINMENT BUILDING, BUT STEAM GENERATOR TUBE LEAKAGE IS TRANSPORTED OUT OF THE CONTAINMENT BUILDING ALONG WITH THE STEAM, WHICH IS NORMALLY UNCONTAMINATED. STEAM GENERATOR TUBES, CONSEQUENTLY, DESERVE, AND RECEIVE SPECIAL CONSIDERATION. THE ASSURANCE OF STE ...

  5. NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION TO DIRECTLY MEASURE STEAM GENERATOR TUBE U-BEND VIBRATORY RESPONSE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ON FEBRUARY 9, 1991, AT THE MIHAMA UNIT 2 NUCLEAR POWER STATION, OPEARTED BY KANSAI ELECTRIC CORPORATION, A STEAM GENERATOR TUBE RUPTURED AND RELEASED APPROXIMATELY 9,000 GALLONS OF REACTOR COOLANT INTO THE SECONDARY SYSTEM. THE LEAKAGE CAUSED A RAPID DEPRESSURIZATION OF THE REACTOR COOLANT SYSTEM, WHICH RESULTED IN AN AUTOMATIC REACTOR TRIP AND ACTUATION OF THE HIGH PRESSURE SAFETY INJECTION SYST ...

  6. EVALUATION OF GENERAL FAILURE TYPES IN SAFETY ANALYSIS

    SBC: John Wreathall & Company            Topic: N/A

    THIS WORK IS TO DEVELOP A METHOD TO IMPROVE THE ABILITY OF THE USNRC TO EVALUATE THE OPERATIONAL SAFETY SIGNIFICANCE OF OCCURANCES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. PERHAPS THE AREA OF GREATEST SAFETY SIGNIFICANCE IS HUMAN PERFORMANCE, BUT THE TECHNIQUES USED BY NRC DO NOT EVALUATE HUMAN PERFORMANCE IN ANY SYSTEMIC WAY. THE WORK IS PROPOSED TO BE PERFORMED IN THREE STAGES, AND BUILDS ON METHODS THAT HAVE B ...

  7. DETECTION OF INCIPIENT CORROSION IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: MASSACHUSETTS TECHNOLOGICAL LABORATORY            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTIC FIELDS CAN BE DESIGNED TO COAX LIQUID BORNE SUBMICRONIC PARTICLES TO ANNOUNCE THEIR PRESENCE LOUDER THAN THE USUAL SCATTERING SIGNALS WHICH ARE PRIMARILY DETERMINED BY THE DENSITY AND COMPRESSIBILITY CONTRAST BETWEEN THE PARTICLE MATERIAL AND THE HOST FLUID. WE EXPECT A SIGNAL ENHANCEMENT OF AT LEAST 60DB. THE KEY CONCEPT IS TO COAX THE PARTICLES TO SOFT CAVITATE AND DETECT THE ENSUING TR ...

  8. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  9. MICRO COMPUTER BASED PARALLEL PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR CODE COMPUTATIONS

    SBC: Risk Management Systems            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  10. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...
