  1. TASK NETWORK MODELING OF HUMAN OPERATIONS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOMS

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF AND, HOPEFULLY, VALIDATE THE USE OF TASK NETWORK MODELING TOSTUDY HUMAN FACTORS IN THE CONTROL ROOM. TASK NETWORK MODELING EXTENDS A HUMAN ENGINEERING TASK ANALYSIS INTO A COMPUTER MODEL. WE PROPOSE THAT PERTURBING THE INDIVIDUAL TASKS IN A TASK NETWORK MODEL IN A MANNER PREDICTED FROM CONTROL ROOM DESIGN CHANGES, TASK AUTOMATION, OR THE CO ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. QUANTIFICATION OF CONSERVATISMS IN SEISMIC RISK ESTIMATES THROUGH ENGINEERING ADVANCEMENT OF SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Risk Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT CONSERVATISM IN MODERN SEISMIC PRA DERIVES FROM SIMPLIFICATIONS IN GROUND-MOTION CHARACTERIZATION AT THE INTERFACE OF SEISMIC HAZARD AND FRAGILITY METHODOLOGIES. THIS CONSERVATISM ARISES BECAUSE A SINGLE COMPOSITE-MAGNITUDE, BROAD-BAND, GROUND-MOTION SPECTRUM IS USED TO DERIVE FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS, WHEREAS THE MAJORITY OF MOTIONS CONTRIBUTING TO SITE HAZARD HAVE (LESS-DAMAGING) NARROW-B ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.
