  1. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  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 ...

  3. A TUNABLE, MONOCHROMATIC X-RAY GENERATOR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    PARAMETRIC X-RADIATION (PXR) IS PROPOSED AS AN INTENSE, TUNABLE, MONOCHROMATIC HARD-X-RAY SOURCE FOR THE DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES. THIS RADIATION IS HIGHLY COLLIMATED, HAS A BANDWIDTH OF 0.1, AND AN INTENSITY EQUAL TO THAT OF SYNCHROTRON RADIATION ON A PER ELECTRON BASIS. PXR GENERATION IS ACHIEVED BY PLACING CRYSTALS INTO THE PATH OF ELECTRON BEAMS WITH ENERGY OF 6 MEV OR GREATER. THE VIRTUAL PHOT ...

  4. US FLAG COASTAL RO/RO SHIPS; APPLICATION OF CASSETTE TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Advanced Marine Enterprises,            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE RANGE OF SHIP SIZES AND POWER LEVELS (SPEEDS) TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM SHIP CHARACTERISTICS FOR OPERATING U.S. FLAG RO/RO SHIPS IN U.S. COASTAL SERVICE. RO/RO CARGO HANDLING TECHNIQUES PREVALENT IN EUROPE AND SCANDINAVIA WILL BE INCORPORATED AS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE SERIES OF SHIPS INVESTIGATED. THESE TECHNIQUES INVOLVE THE USE OF CASSETTES TO HANDLE CONTAINERS ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. CONTROL ROOM INLEAKAGE TEST

    SBC: Lagus Applied Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIMPLIFIED RECONNAISSANCE-TYPE TEST IS PROPOSED THAT UTILIZES THE TECHNIQUES OF TRACER GAS VENTILATION TESTING TO QUANTIFY THE UNFILTERED AIR INLEAKAGE INTO AN OPERATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOM. THE TEST WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENCOMPASS THE FIVE BASIC TYPES OF CONTROL ROOM EMERGENCY VENTILATION SYSTEMS. A THOROUGH ERROR ANALYSIS WILL ALSO BE UNDERTAKEN. A DETAILED TESTING PROTOCOL SUITABL ...

  10. SELF-REINFORCED POLYMERS FOR AIRCRAFT CABIN INTERIORS

    SBC: Maxdem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POLY-X(TM) RESINS, A NEW CLASS OF RIGID-ROD THERMPLASTICS WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR POTENTIAL USE IN AIRCRAFT CABIN INTERIORS. THE POLY-X(TM) POLYMERS ARE THE STIFFEST KNOWN THERMOPLASTICS WITH TENSILE MODULI OF 10 GPA. BECAUSE OF THEIR HIGH STIFFNESS AND STRENGTH IT IS PROPOSED THAT THEY MAY MAKE POSSIBLE LIGHTER STRUCTURES FOR AIRCRAFT INTERIORS. IT IS ALSO EXPECTED THAT THESE NEW RESINS WILL HAV ...
