  1. BWR RECIRCULATION INLET SAFE ENDS-A THREAT TO PLANT LIFE ANDSAFETY

    SBC: Aptech Engineering Services            Topic: N/A

    AN ON-GOING THREAT TO THE RESIDUAL LIFETIME AND SAFETY OF BOILING WATER REACTORS (BWRS) IS INTERGRANULAR STRESS CORROSION CRACKING (IGSCC). A COMPONENT OF SPECIAL CONCERN IN THE RECIRCULATION INLET NOZZLE SAFE END (RINSE). FOR EXAMPLE, WITHIN THE LAST 2 YEARS 30 OUT OF 30 RINSES ARE KNOWN TO BE CRACKED AT A 3-UNIT BWR SITE AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT 20 OUT OF 20 RINSES ARE CRACKED AT A 2-UNIT BWR SIT ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A REAL TIME LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT SIMULATION MODEL

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT CODE IS PROPOSED. NEW APPROACHES TO ESTIMATE THE RADIOACTIVE DECAY, WET AND DRY DEPOSITION, PARTICULATE COAGULATION, AND ATMOSPHERIC PARAMETERS WILL BE EXPLORED AND A SIMPLE, IDEALIZED EVALUATION OF THESE ALGORITHMS WILL BE MADE IN PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT. BASED ON THESE STUDIES A) AN APPROPRIATE NEAR SOURCE RISE ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. IMPROVED MODEL FOR PREDICTING J-R CURVES FROM CHARPY DATA

    SBC: Modeling & Computing Services            Topic: N/A

    IT IS NECESSARY TO ESTIMATE J-R OR JI DATA FOR AGING AND RE-SIDUAL LIFE STUDIES, USING DATA FROM SURVEILLANCE CAPSULE SPECIMENS THAT REFLECT THE CURRENT STATE OF THE PRESSURE VESSEL STEEL. AN IMPROVED MODEL IS NEEDED THAT WILL PREDICT J J-R DATA FROM CHARPY DATA, TENSILE PROPERTIES, MATERIAL COM-POSITION AND OTHER MEASURABLE PROPERTIES. SUCH A MODEL WILLBE DEVELOPED UNDER THIS PROJECT, USING INNOV ...

  6. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kalsi Engineering, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  7. MICRO COMPUTER BASED PARALLEL PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR CODE COMPUTATIONS

    SBC: Risk Management Systems            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP A MICROCOMPUTER BASED SYSTEM OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE WHICH WILL ALLOW THE USER TOEXECUTE MAINFRAME BASED CODES ON THE MICROCOMPUTER. IN ADDITION PARALLEL EXECUTION OF SEVERAL CODES AT ONCE IS POSSIBLEA SPECIAL INPUT AND OUTPUT PROCESSOR MODULES WILL ALSO BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE THE USER FRIENDLY CAPABILITIES OF THE SYSTEM AND FACILITATE INPUT PREPARATION AND ...

  9. TWO NEW NDE TECHNIQUES FOR INSPECTION OF CONTAINMENT WELDS BENEATH COATINGS

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INSPECTION OF PAINTED OR COATED CARBON STEEL SURFACES OFTEN INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF THE COATING PRIOR TO INSPECTION, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE USE OF MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MT) IS REQUIRED. IN THE CASE OF EXAMINATION OF CONTAINMENT VESSEL WALLS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, THE REMOVAL IS TIME CONSUMING, RESULTING IN INCREASED RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. IN ADDITION, THE REMOVAL MUST BE DONE WITHOUT C ...
