Title: Nuclear Power Plant Mechanical Component Flooding Fragility Experiments FY-2017 Report

Abstract

This report describes FY17 progress on Nuclear Power Plant mechanical component flooding fragility experiments and supporting research. The progress includes execution of full scale component fragility experiments, design and implementation of improvements to the Portal Evaluation Tank, experiment design exploiting the improved Portal Evaluation Tank capabilities, fragility mathematical model development, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic simulations and RAVEN coupling, wave impact simulation device design, and pipe rupture mechanics research. Additionally, a component flooding experiments steering committee charter was developed and initial committee member invitations were issued. Various laboratory tours also occurred including a tour for the Idaho State Board of Education.
