  2. REAL-TIME COLLECTION OF OPERATIONAL DATA TO SUPPORT RISK-BASED OPERATION REGULATION AND INSPECTIONS AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTERIZED DATA COLLECTION DEVICES EXIST AND ARE BEING USED IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS AT SOME NPPS FOR SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT NOT INSTRUMENTED IN THE CONTROL ROOM. HOWEVER, CURRENT APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY ARE RATHER SPORADIC AND NOT EXPLOITING THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL DIFFERENT NPPS USE SUCH SYSTEMS FOR SINGLE- PURPOSES SUCH AS TRENDS IN EQUIPMEN ...

  3. AN ADAPTING FINITE ELEMENT MODEL FOR UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A TWO-DIMENSIONAL NUMERICAL MODEL BASED ON A HYBRID FINITE ELEMENT METHOD WITH MESH ADAPTATION IS PROPOSED TO CALCULATE GROUNDWATER FLOW AND POLLUTANT TRANSPORT IN UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA. THE ALGORITHM IS MODIFIED TO ENHANCE COMPUTATIONAL SPEED AND STORAGE, AND INCORPORATES PETROV-GALERKIN WEIGHTING FOR THE ADVECTION TERMS. NONLINEARITIES ASSOCIATED WITH UNSATURATED SOIL PROPERTIES, ATMOSPHERIC ...

  9. "EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED TO ANALYZE THE 'SEISMIC MARGIN' OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT USING THE HCLPF CONCEPT (HIGH CONFIDENCE OF A LOW PROBABILITY OF FAILURE). STARTING WITH AN EARTHQUAKE LEVEL SHOSEN FOR MARGIN REVIEW, THE TECHNIQUE DETERMINES WHETHER THE PLANT CAN OR CANNOT 'WITHSTAND THE REVIEW-EARTHQUAKE WITHOUT CORE DAMAGE. HERE 'WITHSTAND' MEANS 'WITHSTAND WITH A HIGH CONFIDENCE ...
