  • This report presents findings and concerns resulting from a Technical Safety Appraisal of Sandia National Laboratories' Sandia Pulse Reactor III (SPR III) and the Annular Core Research Reactor (ACRR). It was conducted by an appraisal team for the Department of Energy's Office of Safety Appraisals during site visits July 18--22 and August 1--12, 1988. The two reactors are located in Technical Area V of the Sandia Albuquerque site. A third reactor, SPR II, is stored assembled in a vault at the SPR III facility. While the SPR II reactor is still considered operational, there are no plans to use itmore » in the foreseeable future. It was last operated in 1984. This appraisal addresses only the operations associated with SPR III and ACRR. The principle hazards presented by operations in these facilities are routine industrial safety hazards, the beta and gamma radiation fields experienced during maintenance operations at SPR III and during the handling of experimental packages after irradiation in either of the reactors, and localized radiation fields that could result from a highly-unlikely, severe accident. The findings and concerns developed by the appraisal team were shared with senior managers of Sandia National Laboratories and the Albuquerque Operations Office in exit meetings held on August 11 and 12, 1988. The final report of the team has been validated for factual accuracy with Sandia and the Albuquerque Operations Office.« less
  • A comprehensive environmental sample management program allocates much of its resources to collecting, managing, and manipulating information. A computerized system that collects information at the field sampling point, tracks the sample to analytical labs and loads electronic data deliverables from these labs, while maintaining chain of custody and data integrity, is efficient and cost effective for providing consistent and accurate, legally defensible sample data. In June 1993, a team was formed to gather Sample Management Office requirements and begin development of a sample tracking system. This paper is an overview of experiences encountered when Sandia transferred and implemented sample softwaremore » from the Waste Area Group (WAG6) at ORNL.« less
  • This report provides a summary of the radionuclide releases from the United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration facilities at Sandia National Laboratories, New Mexico (SNL/NM) during Calendar Year (CY) 2014, including the data, calculations, and supporting documentation for demonstrating compliance with 40 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 61, Subpart H--NATIONAL EMISSION STANDARDS FOR EMISSIONS OF RADIONUCLIDES OTHER THAN RADON FROM DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY FACILITIES. A description is given of the sources and their contributions to the overall dose assessment. In addition, the maximally exposed individual (MEI) radiological dose calculation and the population dose to localmore » and regional residents are discussed.« less
  • Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) is assisting Jet Propulsion Laboratory in undertaking feasibility studies and performance assessments for the Planetary Protection aspect of the Europa Lander mission. The specific areas of interest for this project are described by task number. This white paper presents the evaluation results for Task 2, Radiation Testing, which was stated as follows: Survey SNL facilities and capabilities for simulating the Europan radiation environment and assess suitability for: A. Testing batteries, electronics, and other component and subsystems B. Exposing biological organisms to assess their survivability metrics. The radiation environment the Europa Lander will encounter on route andmore » in orbit upon arrival at its destination consists primarily of charged particles, energetic protons and electrons with the energies up to 1 GeV. The charged particle environments can be simulated using the accelerators at the Ion Beam Laboratory. The Gamma Irradiation Facility and its annex, the Low Dose Rate Irradiation Facility, offer irradiations using Co-60 gamma sources (1.17 and 1.33 MeV), as well as Cs-137 gamma (0.661 MeV) AmBe neutron (0-10 MeV) sources.« less
  • The purpose of this document is to define the rules of governance for the Sandia Postdoctoral Development (SPD) Association. This includes election procedures for filling vacancies on the SPD board, an all-purpose voting procedure, and definitions for the roles and responsibilities of each SPD board member. The voting procedures can also be used to amend the by-laws, as well as to create, dissolve, or consolidate vacant SPD board positions.
