Title: A review of the ''Report of the President's Commission on the accident at Three Mile Island''

Abstract

The Engineers Committee on Three. Mile Island is composed of members from sixteen nationally-recognized professional engineering societies. The viewpoints expressed in this report represent those of the Committee and not the societies. The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) acted in a coordinating role to form this Committee in August, 1979. The purpose of the Committee is to contribute to and form independent engineering reviews of the reports of the official investigations of the Three Mile Island accident. These investigations include the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Special Inquiry Group, the investigation of the Senate Subcommittee on Nuclear Regulation, and the President's Commission on the Accident at Three Mile Island, which is the subject of this review. Through these activities, the Committee is working to make technical contributions to the investigation process and to help achieve a more effective understanding, interpretation and use of these reports on the part of government, industry, and the general public. Details related to the qualifications of the members of the Engineers Committee are provided in the Appendix.
