Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SCOPING ANALYSIS OF LWR SHUTDOWN ACCIDENTS INITIATED BY EARTHQUAKES AND INTERNAL FIRES

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS RECENTLY BEEN HEIGHTENED CONCERN FOR THE POSSIBILITY THAT NUCLEAR POWER-PLANT ACCIDENTS DURING SHUTDOWNS COULD BE IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTORS TO THE OVERALL RISK PROFILE OF THESE PLANTS. THE 1986 SOVIET ACCIDENT AT CHERNOBYL WAS THE PRINCIPAL EVENT THAT LED TO THIS HEIGHTENED CONCERN, BUT A FEW RECENT EVENTS AT U.S. PLANTS HAVE ALSO CONTRIBUTED. TODAY, IT IS WIDELY UNDERSTOOD THAT THE RISK OF ...

  3. NUCLEAR PLANT DATA BANK (NPDB) PLANT DESCRIPTION DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Ybarrondo & Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION (NRC) HAS SPONSORED THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NUCLEAR PLANT DATA BANK (NPDB) SYSTEM AT TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT OF CALIFORNIA (TDC) FOR APPROXIMATELY THE LAST FIVE YEARS. THIS WORK IS ESSENTIALLYCOMPLETE AND IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE NUCLEAR PLANT A (NPA). TO MAKE THE NPDB A USEFUL AND PRODUCTIVE SYSTEM, REPRESENTATIVE DESCRIPTIONS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS MUST BE ENTE ...

  4. SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED FOR PROBABILISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE RISK FROM EARTHQUAKE-INITIATED ACCIDENTS AT NUCLEAR POWER REACTORS. THESE TECHNIQUES ARE NOW BEGINNING TO BE APPLIED AS PARTS OF LARGER PRA STUDIES. HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF APPLYING THESE SEISMIC PRA TECHNIQUES ARE STILL HIGHLY UNCERTAIN, AND THE INSIGHTS GAINED SO FAR FOR SPECIFIC REACTORS ARE DIFFICULT TO GENERALIZE. THIS ...

  5. ROBOTICS APPLICATION FOR EXPOSURE REDUCTION

    SBC: Remotec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ASSESS THE STATE-OF-THE ART OF COMPUTERIZED ROBOTS TO DETERMINE WHETHER COST/ BENEFICIAL APPLICATIONS CAN BE MADE IN NUCLEAR PLANT MAINTENANCE AND IF SUCH APPLICATIONS ARE POSSIBLE, TO DEVELOP A PLAN TO SUBSTANTIATE THE COST/BENEFIT ANALYSIS AND TO IDENTIFY THE FACTORS, IF ANY, WHICH WOULD INHIBIT NEAR-TERM ADAPTION OF ROBOT TECHNOLOGY IN NUCLEAR PLANT MAINTENANCE ...

  6. COMBINING LASER MEASUREMENTS WITH BACKWARD WAVE TECHNIQUES FOR EVALUATION OF UNDERGROUND OPENINGS IN OIL SHALE

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    SUCCESSFUL COMMERCIALIZATION OF OIL SHALE WILL INVOLVE LARGESCALE UNDERGROUND MINING OR RETORTING, AND WILL REQUIRE SUPPORT TECHNOLOGY TO EVALUATE THE INTEGRITY OF SUPPORT PILLARS, MINE ROOF ROCK, AND OTHER LARGE STRUCTURES IN OIL SHALE. IN ORDER TO ELIMINATE TIME CONSUMING AND OBTRUSIVE EVALUATION METHODS INVOLVING CONTRACT TYPE DETECTORS (GEOPHONES, ACCELEROMETERS, ETC.), IT IS PROPOSED HERE THA ...

  9. METHODS TO UNDERSTAND AND ANALYZE AGING EFFECTS

    SBC: Sea Consultants            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO DEVELOP AN ACCURATE, ANALYTICAL REPRESENTATION OF THE EQUIPMENT AGING PROCESS, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECTS OF TTHE AGING PHENOMENON MUST BE UNDERSTOOD. FOR COMPLEX EQUIP MENT, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECT CAN BE DETERMINED BY PARTITION ING THE EQUIPMENT INTO SMALLER REPLACEABLE PARTS, DEFINING THE AGING AFFECTRS ON THE PARTS, AND THEN COMBINING THE PARTLEVEL EFFECTS TO REFLECT THE ASSEMBLED EQUI ...

  10. PROBABILITY OF FLOODS WITH VERY LONG RETURN PERIODS

    SBC: Linsley Kraeger Associates Ltd            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCEDURE FOR GENERATING LONG STREAMFLOW SEQUENCES. IT IS PROPOSED TO FIRST DEVELOP A LONG SEQUENCE OF HOURLY RAINFALL BY STOCHASTIC METHODS AND TO TRANSFORM THIS RAINFALL SEQUENCE INTO STREAMFLOW WITH A DETERMINISTIC HYDROLOGIC MODEL. PHASE I WILL FOCUS ON THE A STOCHASTIC RAINFALL MODEL CAPABLE OF DEVELOPING RAINFALL SEQUENCES AT MULTIPLE SITES. ...
