  • The Reactor Safety Assessment System is an expert system under development for the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). RSAS is intended for use at the NRC's Operations Center in the event of a serious incident at a licensed nuclear power plant. The system uses plant parameter data and status information from the power plant. It has a rule base which uses the parametric values, the known operator actions and the time sequence information in the data to generate situation assessment conclusions for use by the NRC Reactor Safety Team. RSAS rules currently cover one specific reactor type and usemore » setpoints specific to one power plant. 5 figs.« less

  • On November 8, 1985, the surface impoundments at a gas and electric company power plant were closed to further use. This left the plant with no means to handle the approximately 250,000 gallons of boiler waste water generated per cleaning. This paper discusses design, construction, and start-up experience of the substitute treatment system that removes the power plant from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) list of hazardous waste storage sites. It is a permitted facility that was designed, constructed, and started up in 11 months. This system converts the waste water into 10--12 cubic yards of solid waste, and watermore » that is discharged under an existing National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Start-up problems with their resolutions and proposed enhancements are reviewed.« less
  • Incineration has become an acceptable and feasible method of waste treatment. In the process of incinerating distillery spent wash, evaporation of the raw dilute waste to higher concentrations prior to combustion causes lot of difficulties and high expenditure. Recirculating Fluidized Bed (RCFB) with a central draft tube system has been suggested for the incineration of distillery spent wash to reduce the evaporation requirements in external evaporators prior to combustion. Cold wind box and hot wind box operations of this incineration system are described and calculated performance details are compared. Hot wind box operations increase the quantity of waste that canmore » be treated in the system and also reduce considerably the concentrations to be achieved in the external evaporators. For the appropriate selection of the operation, cost involved in the heat recuperation needs to be assessed.« less
  • The Risk Management and NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) Department of Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico (SNL/NM) recognized the need for hazard and environmental data analysis and management to support the line managers` need to know, understand, manage and document the hazards in their facilities and activities. The Integrated Safety, Environmental, and Emergency Management System (ISEEMS) was developed in response to this need. SNL needed a process that would quickly and easily determine if a facility or project activity contained only standard industrial hazards and therefore require minimal safety documentation, or if non-standard industrial hazards existed which would require more extensivemore » analysis and documentation. Many facilities and project activities at SNL would benefit from the quick screening process used in ISEEMS. In addition, a process was needed that would expedite the NEPA process. ISEEMS takes advantage of the fact that there is some information needed for the NEPA process that is also needed for the safety documentation process. The ISEEMS process enables SNL line organizations to identify and manage hazards and environmental concerns at a level of effort commensurate with the hazards themselves by adopting a necessary and sufficient (graded) approach to compliance. All hazard-related information contained within ISEEMS is location based and can be displayed using on-line maps and building floor plans. This visual representation provides for quick assimilation and analysis.« less
