  • This report describes a demonstration of the performance assessment methodology for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) to be used in assessing compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency. This demonstration incorporates development and screening of potentially disruptive scenarios. A preliminary analysis of the WIPP disposal system's response to human intrusion scenarios produces preliminary complementary cumulative distribution functions (CCDFs) used to assess the compliance of the WIPP with the Containment Requirements of the Standard. The conceptual model of the disposal system consists of geologic, hydrologic, and disposal system subsystems along with the physical and chemical processes associated with these subsystems. Parametermore » values defining the systems contain uncertainties and modeling approximations of such a disposal system contributes to those uncertainties. The WIPP compliance assessment methodology consists of a system of techniques and computer codes that estimate releases of radionuclides from the disposal system, incorporating analysis of the parameter uncertainties in the estimates. Demonstration CCDFs are presented, but are not yet credible enough to judge the probability of compliance of the WIPP with the EPA Standard. 60 refs., 75 figs., 30 tabs.« less
  • The purpose of this study was to assess the applicability of value-impact analysis (VIA) to the selection of R and D projects in the field of nuclear reactor safety. A practical methodology was developed for describing alternative R and D projects, for eliminating inferior projects, for evaluating the remaining projects, and for ranking them for selection purposes. This approach was demonstrated by applying it to four sample projects dealing with improvements in residual heat removal systems. It was found that the conventional VIA approach is inadequate for the purposes of R and D project selection. A number of modifications aremore » suggested to permit more explicit treatment of the risk and uncertainty inherent in R and D projects and to clarify the basis for choice among them.« less
  • Two papers are included. A separate abstract was prepared for each one. (MHR)
  • This report contains data on OCS development and some financial implications for the state. But the major portion of the study is concerned with alternative methodologies, and their related evaluations, which can be applied to measuring the impact of petroleum and gas mining activity on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) adjacent to Louisiana. For purposes of this report the OCS extends seaward from the outer 3 mile limit of the state's jurisdiction to the limit of the continental margin. Chapter 2 contains a survey of the literature. Because the impact methodology proposed is based heavily on the input-output technique, Chaptermore » 3 presents a summary of input-output technology. Chapter 4 summarizes the production and processes of the OCS industry. Chapter 5 presents the methodology for estimating OCS related expenditures and their impact on Louisiana. Chapter 6 is concerned with the methodology of estimating the fiscal impact on Louisiana's governments and Chapter 7 briefly discusses the environmental impact and literature.« less
