  1. EXTENDED FATIGUE LIFE EVALUATION METHODS FOR AGED LWR COMPONENTS

    SBC: O'donnell Consulting Engineers            Topic: N/A

    STRESSES DUE TO PRESSURE AND REPEATED THERMAL CYCLING CAUSE PROGRESSIVE MATERIAL DAMAGE DURING THE OPERATION OF LWR COMPONENTS AND PIPING SYSTEMS. THE PRESENT PRO POSED RESEARCH WOULD IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF EXISTING S- N FATIGUE EVALUATION METHODS BY COMBINING THEM WITH THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OF CRACK PROPAGATION AND FRACTURE MECH ANICS. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE CRACK PROPAG ...

  2. GENERALIZED MODELING OF CONDENSATION FOR REACTOR APPLICATION

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    A CONSTITUTIVE PACKAGE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE MODELING OFDIRECT CONTACT CONDENSATION IN ADVANCED COMPUTER CODES FOR NUCLEAR REACTOR ANALYSIS. SINCE CURENT APPROACHES ARE BUILT UPON FLOW REGIME MAPS WHICH DO NOT ACCOUNT FOR CON DENSATION EFFECTS, PRESENT ADVANCED THERMAL/HYDRAULIC CODES ARE UNABLE TO MODEL COLD LEG FLOW BEHAVIOR CONSISTENTLY DURING CONDENSATION, ESPECIALLY IF THE FLOW IS OSCILLA ...

  3. FUNCTIONAL CONDITION OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Pentek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PENTEK WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES IN A NUCLEAR POWERPLANT BASED ON THE MEASUREMTNT AND ANALYSIS OF IN-RUSH CURRENT. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEVELOPED SO THAT ALL MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE FROM OUTSIDE THE REACTOR BUILDING WITHOUT DISTRUBING ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. THE ANALYSIS METHODS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR ON-LINE USE WITH A PERSON ...

  4. ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA.

    SBC: Pickard, Lowe & Garrick Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA. IN THIS WORK, FORMAL MODELS FOR USING THE OPINIONS OF SINGLE AND MULTIPLE EXPERTS WILL BE EVALUATED INLIGNT OF EMPIRICAL DATA. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO SEE TO WHAT EXTENT THE EMPIRICAL DATA "VALIDATES" THE EXPERTS' ESTIMATES, AS WELL AS THE MODELS USED FOR ANALYZING SUCH ...

  6. A TEST METHOD FOR RELIAVLY AND EASILY EVALUATING THE CONDITION OF A REACTOR COOLANT PUMP (RCP) SHAFT WHEN THER E IS ONLY LIMITED ACCESS TO THE SHAFT AT THE COUPLING WOULD ENABLE THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY TO EVALUATE THESE SHAFT SYSTEMS ON SITE.

    SBC: Rem Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TEST METHOD FOR RELIAVLY AND EASILY EVALUATING THE CONDITION OF A REACTOR COOLANT PUMP (RCP) SHAFT WHEN THER E IS ONLY LIMITED ACCESS TO THE SHAFT AT THE COUPLING WOULD ENABLE THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY TO EVALUATE THESE SHAFT SYSTEMS ON SITE. THIS PROJECT PROVIDES A TESTING METHOD WHICH CAN BEAPPLIED TO IDENTIFY THE PRESENCE, SIZE, AND LOCATION OF SHAFT CRACKS IN A VERTICAL RCP SHAFT SYSTEM. CONFIRMA ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. METHODS

    SBC: Structural Analysis            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEACH IS TO IMPROVE THE SAFETY OF THE PIPING SYSTEMS SUBJECTED TO LOADINGS WITH A WIDE RANGE OF FREQUENCY CONTENT (E.G. PRESSURIZED THERMAL SHOCK, WATER HAMMER, AND SEISMIC LOADINGS). THIS WILL BE DONE BY SHOWING THAT THE SAFETY OF THE PIPING SYSTEMS CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED BY USING NONLINEAR (INELASTIC) PROCEDURES BECAUSE OF UTILIZATION OF THE SIGNIFICANT ADDIT ...

  9. IZATION

    SBC: Waste Management Group Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AT PRESENT, THE INDUSTRY USES MANY DIFFERENT METHODS TO CHARACTERIZE HARDWARE IN TERMS OF TIS RADIONUCLIDE CONTENT AT THE TIME OF DISPOSAL. ALL OF THES METHODS INVOLVE SOME FORM OF COMPONENT RADIATION PROFILING TO OBTAIN CO-60 ES ESTIMATES COUPLED WITH SCALING OF 10CFR PART 61 LONG LIVED NUCLIDES FOUND IN HARDWARE. UNDERWATER RADIATION PROFILES ARE OBTAINED UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS, WITH DIFFERE ...

  10. FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: ANALYSIS & SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO DEVELOP SYSTEMS THAT CAN DETECT EMERGENCY AND/OR ABNORMAL OPERATIONS OF GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT AND WARN OR ALERT THE PILOT OF ITS EFFECT AND RECOMMEND PROCEDURES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I STUDY IS TO INVESTIGATE THE APPLICABILITY OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY TO THE SOLUTION OF THIS PROBLEM. THE APPROACH INVOLVES: (1) CLARIFICATION OF THE OVERALL EMERGENCY SITU- AT ...
