  1. 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 ...

  2. GNSS Radio Occulation Receiver

    SBC: 3s Navigation (dba For            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to design a space-qualified dual-frequency GPS/GLONASS receiver with enhanced capabilities for atmospheric remote sounding. While such soundings have been performed using GPS-only receivers, a space-based GPS/GLONASS receiver would be superior in terms of coverage and integrity cross- checking, as well as the ability to process the unencrypted GLONASS L2 signal. This design ...

  3. Self-Calibration and Error Analysis for 2D Measurements

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    Two-dimensional measurement machines, such as microlithography and computed tomography systems, are subject to distortions in the measurement field due to imperfections in their hardware and software. Certified methods to characterize and quantify such distortions are urgently needed. An innovative self- calibrating scheme is tendered which eliminates the disadvantages of previous self-calibration ...

  4. Diagnostic Development for Characterizing Fuel Droplet Temperatures in Spray Flames

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of efficient spray combustors requires a complete understanding of fundamental phenomena that influence and control the overall spray combustion process. Toward this end, detailed experimental characterization of spray flames is essential. This includes measurement of various fuel droplet parameters such as droplet size, velocity, number density, temperature, composition, and droplet ...

  5. Scanning Head Storage Phosphor Plate Scanner

    SBC: APREND TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The specific problem addressed by the proposed research is the development of a scanner for storage phosphor plates with significantly better positional and intensity accuracy than the current state of the art. The new scanner will be based on the use of a "scanning head" scanning approach which is more simple, accurate, and stable than the approaches previously used. This results in stable and ...
