This conference continues the work done in this area so far and will focus on the concept of DID and its implementation in nuclear installations. The essential philosophy of DID is to provide multiple levels of protection so that potential failures are compensated in a way that ensures protection of the workers, public and the environment. Defence in depth is fundamental to the safety of nuclear installations and should be implemented during all stages of their life cycle, from the design phase through operation and eventual decommissioning. While the concept of DID has been implemented largely successfully in the nuclear industry, recent events such as the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident highlighted potential vulnerabilities that could be caused by extreme external events. Recent national and international actions in response to the Fukushima Daiichi accident to address rare but credible events with significant adverse safety consequences suggest that the implementation of the concept of ...
ENME 489T presents the principles of nuclear reactor engineering as applied to reactor power plants.

An artists impression of Ostrovets Nuclear Power Plant. Source: Belarus AEC.After Fukushima, you might think that nuclear power is a thing of the past. Or that our focus on climate is the only issue of public concern when it comes to the energy sector. Yet the recent Meeting of the Parties to the Espoo Convention, which deals with environmental impact assessments across borders, was hi-jacked by ongoing disputes over reactor construction and lifetime extension. In Minsk, 200 participants representing the 45 states who are members to this UN Convention held heated discussions over problematic cases, such as Hinkley Point C (UK), Ostravets (Belarus) and a number of old Ukrainian reactors going through their lifetime extensions.. This dispute has arisen largely because the rules on who has a say when decisions regarding nuclear operations are made are unclear. Which countries and their citizens should be notified and involved in decision-making on a new nuclear installation such as Hinkley Point C? ...
Investment in Hinkley Point C - the first new nuclear plant to be built in the UK in 20 years is set for final approval on Thursday 28 July 2016.

Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. As many nuclear experts around the world are retiring, they are taking with them a substantial amount of knowledge and corporate memory. The loss of such employees who hold knowledge critical to both operations and safety poses a clear internal threat to the safe and reliable operation of nuclear facilities. This publication is intended for senior and middle level managers of nuclear industry operating organizations and provides practical information on knowledge loss risk management. The information provided in this publication is based upon actual experiences of Member State operating organizations and is intended to increase awareness of the need to develop a strategic approach and action plans to address the potential loss of critical knowledge and skills; to provide processes and, in conducting risk assessments, to determine the ...
The scattering of farms and rural homesteads that existed at this spot prior to the 19th century turned into a full-blown village with the arrival of the railway in the early 19th century. Seascale had aspirations to become a major resort, in fact it aimed to be the Eastbourne of the north, but this ambition did not quite go according to plan, although the railway access ensured its popularity as a destination for day trippers. It was after the Second World War that the area was transformed forever, with the decision to build a nuclear power station, originally called the Windscale Reactor and Calder Hall, and now known as the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site. The attendant influx of technicians and scientists who were brought into the area earned Seascale the nickname of the brainiest village in Britain. Today Sellafield is the largest employer in West Cumbria, so whether you consider Sellafield to be a blot on the landscape or a necessary evil there is no denying its effect on the ...

That a lot of people died because of what happened at Three Mile Island, as the Thompsons claim, is definitely not part of the official story. In fact, the commercial nuclear power industry and the government insist that despite the meltdown of almost half of the uranium fuel at TMI, there were only minimal releases of radiation to the environment that harmed no one.. For example, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the lobbying group for the U.S. nuclear industry, declares on its Web site that there have been no public health or safety consequences from the TMI-2 accident. The governments position is the same, reflected in a fact sheet distributed today by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the federal agency charged with overseeing the U.S. nuclear power industry: TMI, it says, led to no deaths or injuries to plant workers or members of the nearby community. Those upbeat claims are based on the findings of the Kemeny Commission, a panel assembled by President Jimmy Carter in April 1979 to ...
Does the activity of a nuclear site increase environmental radioactivity? Yes, very weakly. In the vicinity of nuclear installations, systematic and regular environmental monitorings ensure that discharges remain below the regulatory limits determined by the control authorities. These discharges induce some radioactivity, too low to be detected, with an impact which remains below 0.1% of the natural exposure in France.
Science and Technology of Nuclear Installations is an international scientific journal that aims to make available knowledge on issues related to the nuclear industry and to promote development in the area of nuclear sciences and technologies. The endeavor associated with the establishment and the growth of the journal is expected to lend support to the renaissance of nuclear technology in the world and especially in those countries where nuclear programs have not yet been developed.

Researchers have linked radiation releases from the Three Mile Island nuclear plant to higher cancer rates in nearby communities in a study that could reopen debate over the nations worst commercial nuclear accident.. The report, released today, concludes that increases in lung cancer and leukemia near the Pennsylvania plant suggest a much greater release of radiation during the 1979 accident than had been believed.. Previous studies concluded that radiation exposure to humans was minimal. A 1990 Columbia University analysis using the same data as the new study found no clear connection between the accident and cancer rates among residents living near the plant.. The cancer findings, along with studies of animals, plants and chromosomal damage in Three Mile Island area residents, all point to much higher radiation levels than were previously reported, said Steven Wing, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of North Carolina and co-author of the study. If you say there was ...
The intake/outlet pipe from the Angra nuclear reactor from which seawater used to cool the power plant is poured back into the sea. A popular swimming spot because of the warmed water, there is no warning sign.

In an indirect cycle nuclear reactor, a size of the reactor containment vessel is decreased by removing decay heat inside the reactor pressure vessel without using any active component to improve the economic feasibility. A main steam pipe communicating with a heat exchanger of the indirect cycle nuclear reactor is branched in a position upstream of a main steam isolation valve to connect the branched pipe to a heat exchanger in a pressure suppression pool through an isolation valve. A feed water pipe is also branched in a position upstream of an isolation valve to connect the branched pipe to the heat exchanger through the isolation valve. Decay heat is dissipated from the heat exchanger into the pressure suppression pool, and condensed water condensed by heat dissipation is returned to the heat exchanger to cool the inside of the pressure vessel. Heat in the pressure suppression pool is transferred from a condensing type heat exchanger to a heat

By Rachel Dawson. Oregon, its about time we talk about nuclear power.. No, I dont mean major reactors like PGEs decommissioned Trojan Nuclear Plant which shuttered in 1992. Rather, Im talking about small modular reactors (SMRs) which are experiencing rapid development and receiving great international interest.. Countries around the world, such as Russia and Canada, are currently exploring this technology. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has completed its first SMR certification review for a company called NuScale Power, which expects final approval by 2020. As it so happens, NuScale is headquartered right here in Portland.. NuScale is developing a new type of nuclear reactor that it claims is safer, smaller, and more affordable than traditional nuclear reactors.. NuScales major advancement is related to the circulation of water for the reactors safety system. Traditional nuclear reactors circulate water by using electricity. NuScale SMRs use natural circulation and thus dont rely ...

Unlike Jimmy Carters disastrous Synfuels Corp., this project looks fairly successful. By the year 2000, the full-scale demonstration units achieved 60% energy-conversion efficiency, which is quite good for a heat engine. By way of contrast Fuel Cells convert hydrogen to electricity with approximately 70% efficiency. Similar to a giant aircraft jet engine, this relatively compact yet power dense electricity supply technology can easily be turned on and off, so it is well suited today for Peaking Power applications in order to augment much larger coal-fired or nuclear installations. Time from ordering to installation is vastly shorter than nuclear and coal plants. And in the long ranger range, with wider-spread use, the economics of gas-turbine generated electricity might improve to the point where it is able to supplant both nuclear and coal in larger installations. ...

Nuclear reactor - Liquid-metal reactors: Sodium-cooled fast-neutron-spectrum liquid-metal reactors (LMRs) received much attention during the 1960s and 70s when it appeared that their breeding capabilities would soon be needed to supply fissile material to a rapidly expanding nuclear industry. When it became clear in the 1980s that this was not a realistic expectation, enthusiasm waned. The developmental work of the previous decades, however, resulted in the construction of a number of LMRs around the world-in the United States, Russia, France, Britain, Japan, and Germany. Most LMRs are fueled with uranium dioxide or mixed uranium-plutonium dioxides. In the United States, however, the greatest success has been
The offshore inlet has vertical bar screens that are not cleaned. The approach velocity is kept low to permit fish to escape. This deters sensitive species that could be damaged if they enter the intake.. The coarse raked bar screens remove large debris that has been brought in through the offshore intake tunnels.. This reduces the load on the fine mesh screens and any potential damage from larger objects in the flow. The Hinkley Point C design uses 20 cable-driven raking systems with pneumatically actuated tines to penetrate between the bars and ensure all debris is lifted to the surface for disposal.. Two types of fine mesh screens are commonly used on seawater intakes and both are employed at Hinkley Point C to remove debris of over 5mm for two separate applications; band screens and drum screens.. The mesh panels on a band screen are mounted in frames on an articulating chain, driven by two sprockets at ground level. The two screens per unit are mounted in a dual flow configuration such that ...
Swedens parliament voided a 30-year-old ban on building new nuclear reactors on Thursday after a debate pitting the countrys need for low-carbon energy sources against environmental concerns over atomic energy.The new legislation will allow construction of new reactors at existing plants from Jan. 1 next year to replace the 10 ageing reactors that still produce roughly 40 percent of the Nordic countrys electricity.The vote was passed with a majority of two with 174 voting for the bill and 172 against. Three legislators were absent.Opinion polls now suggest most Swedes favour keeping nuclear plants, but Thursdays vote does not necessarily secure a future for the countrys reactors.The centre-left opposition, currently running neck and neck with the ruling centre-right in polls before a September election, will rescind the new law if they win the vote, said Tomas Eneroth, Social Democratic spokesman on energy issues.Of course we will tear it up, he said, speaking before Thursdays ...

ATLANTA - Federal regulators are leaning toward approving a nuclear reactor designed by Westinghouse Electric Co. that could power the first nuclear plants built from scratch in a generation. A majority of the members of the U.S.
In February, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved licenses to build two new nuclear reactors on the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant site in Burke County, Ga. They are the first new licenses the NRC has approved in more than three decades.. A consortium of utilities, led by Southern Co., will build and operate the new reactors. The five-member NRC panel voted 4-1, with the majority ruling in favor of the application for two combined licenses (COLs). The COLs authorize Southern Co. to build and operate two AP1000 reactors at the Vogtle site, adjacent to the existing reactors. The reactors are a new Westinghouse design. And they will cost $14 billion and generate 1,100 megawatts each. The AP1000 is an electric pressurized-water reactor that includes passive safety features that would cool down the reactor after an accident without the need for electricity or human intervention.. The NRC imposed a condition on the COLs requiring inspection and testing of squib valves, important ...

Background: Health eects among populations living in the vicinity of nuclear installations have been a major area of concern for several decadesalready. The main focus is on childhood leukaemia. The dominant approach is an ecological study using residential proximity to the nuclear site, however complexradio-active discharge models have also been used. Data: The Belgian Cancer Registry provided data on Childhood leukaemia incidence by commune, age and sex. For the Flemish region this data spans theincidence years 2000-08; for the Walloon and Brussels-Capital Region the data span 2004-08. The study considers four nuclear sites. For each site, the FederalAgency for Nuclear Control used survey stations to measure wind direction and velocity for the period 2003-08.Methods: This paper describes an ecological study on leukaemia incidence in children living in the vicinity of nuclear installations in Belgium. Each nuclear sitewas treated as a point-source and single-site focussed hypothesis tests were ...
In 2008, the KiKK study in Germany reported a 1.6-fold increase in solid cancers and a 2.2-fold increase in leukemias among children living within 5 km of all German nuclear power stations. The study has triggered debates as to the cause(s) of these increased cancers. This article reports on the findings of the KiKK study; discusses past and more recent epidemiological studies of leukemias near nuclear installations around the world, and outlines a possible biological mechanism to explain the increased cancers. This suggests that the observed high rates of infant leukemias may be a teratogenic effect from incorporated radionuclides. Doses from environmental emissions from nuclear reactors to embryos and fetuses in pregnant women near nuclear power stations may be larger than suspected. Hematopoietic tissues appear to be considerably more radiosensitive in embryos/fetuses than in newborn babies. Recommendations for advice to local residents and for further research are made.

National Grid had applied for Development Consent for a new power line to enable the connection of the proposed new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station. The application was considered by the Planning Inspectorate who made a recommendation to the Secretary of State, and on 19 Jan 2016, the Secretary of State accepted that recommendation and granted Development Consent (subject to various conditions).. In the course of considering the application, EMFs were looked at in depth. National Grid provided information in its Environmental Statement, the Inspectorate asked several Written Questions, and EMFs were a major part of one of the issue Specific Hearings.. The conclusions of the Planning Inspectorate on health and wellbeing including EMFs was:. ...
The safety level for personnel and environment to a nuclear installation is given in generally by the technological process quality of operation and maintenance and in particular by a lot of technical, technological, economic and human factors. The maintenance role is fundamental because it has to quantify all the technical, economic and human elements as an integrated system for it creates an important feedback for activities concerning the life cycle of the nuclear installation. In maintenance activities as in any dynamic area, new elements appear continuously which, sometimes require new approaches. The theory of fuzzy logic and the software LabVIEW supplied to the Nuclear Detritiation Plant (NDP) is part of National Research and Development Institute for Cryogenics and Isotopic Technologies-ICIT, Rm.Valcea, used for predictive maintenance to assure safety operation. The final aim is to achieve the best practices for maintenance of the Plant that processes tritium.. ...
A 31-year old Swede was arrested after ahothorities discovered he was preparing to build a nuclear reactor in his apartments kitchen; he already had some radioactive material - ordered from overseas - and material acquired by taking apart a domestic fire alarm; he was discovered when he called the Swedish Radiation Authority to inquire whether it was legal to construct a nuclear reactor at home. Swedish police have arrested a 31-year-old man in Ängelholm, a coastal town in western Sweden, after he sought advice from Swedish government agencies on the legality of building a nuclear reactor in his kitchen.. The man began his experiment with the idea six months ago, and apparently has not kept secret his plans to construct a nuclear reactor in his apartment. He even kept a running blog of his nuclear adventure.. Source: Homeland Security Newswire. ...
A new study details how scientists developed the conceptual nuclear reactor design of high plutonium breeding by light water cooling, which may help advanced countries meet the growth rate of energy demand.. Professor Okas research team succeeded to develop the conceptual nuclear reactor design of high plutonium breeding by light water cooling for the first time in the world. He devised a new fuel assembly where fuel rods are closely packed for reducing reactor coolant to fuel volume fraction for high breeding. With computational analysis he succeeded high plutonium breeding with light water cooling. The study will open the way of commercialization of fast reactor and nuclear fuel cycle for peaceful use of nuclear energy based on the mature light water cooling technologies. The result of the study was published in January issue of Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology of Atomic Energy Society of Japan (AESJ) , entitled Plutonium breeding of light water cooled fast ...
The health effects of the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident are widely, but not universally, agreed to be very low. The American Nuclear Society concluded that average local radiation exposure was equivalent to a chest X-ray, and maximum local exposure equivalent to less than a years background radiation. The U.S. BEIR report on the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation states that [t]he collective dose equivalent resulting from the radioactivity released in the Three Mile Island accident was so low that the estimated number of excess cancer cases to be expected, if any were to occur, would be negligible and undetectable. A variety of epidemiology studies have concluded that the accident has had no observable long term health effects. One dissenting study is A reevaluation of cancer incidence near the Three Mile Island nuclear plant by Dr. Steven Wing of the University of North Carolina. In this study, Dr. Wing and his colleagues argue that earlier findings had logical and ...
This was upstaged by the yet more surprising KiKK studies (a German acronym for Childhood Cancer in the Vicinity of Nuclear Power Plants), whose results were published this year in the International Journal of Cancer (vol 122, p 721) and the European Journal of Cancer (vol 44, p 275). These found higher incidences of cancers and a stronger association with nuclear installations than all previous reports. The main findings were a 60 per cent increase in solid cancers and a 117 per cent increase in leukaemia among young children living near all 16 large German nuclear facilities between 1980 and 2003. The most striking finding was that those who developed cancer lived closer to nuclear power plants than randomly selected controls. Children living within 5 kilometres of the plants were more than twice as likely to contract cancer as those living further away, a finding that has been accepted by the German government ...

Project Scope: An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences will perform a pilot study of cancer risks in populations near seven U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (U.S.NRC)-licensed nuclear facilities using two epidemiologic study designs: (i) an ecologic study of multiple cancer types in populations of all ages and (ii) a record-linkage-based case-control study of cancers in children. The pilot study will focus on the five activities described below: 1. Obtain nuclear facility airborne and waterborne effluent release and meteorology data and digitize these data into a form that is usable for dose estimation. 2. Develop a computer model to obtain estimates of absorbed doses to individual organs resulting from effluent releases. 3. Obtain cancer incidence and mortality data at the census-tract level to assess the feasibility of the ecologic study. 4. Link birth registration and cancer incidence data to identify eligible cases of ...
On June 20, 2017, Exelon Generation, the owners of Three Mile Islands Unit 1 sent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission a formal notice of its intention to shut down the plant on September 30, 2019,[45] unless the Pennsylvania legislature rescues the nuclear industry, which is currently[when?] struggling to compete as newfound natural gas resources have driven down electricity prices.[46] Exelon Generations Senior Vice President Bryan Hanson noted that once Three Mile Island is closed, it can never be reopened for use again.[45] Hanson explicitly stated the reason for the shutdown is because of the unprofitability of Unit 1. Unit 1 has lost the company over 300 million dollars over the last half-decade despite its being one of Exelons best-performing power plants. Shut down of Unit 1 can go in two possible directions, the first being the immediate dismantlement immediately after the radioactive fuel has been moved away from the plant. The dismantlement can proceed after the spent fuel is ...

by Scott D. Portzline. The good news for energy reliability is that wind and solar are stealing the show. Just last week, the North American Electrical Reliability Corporation testified to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that over the next 10 years 260,000 megawatts of new nameplate electrical capacity will be added. A whopping 96% of that will come from wind and solar. The NRC was told they might have to back down some of their nuclear plants during off-peak loads because of new wind-powered generation.. The claim by former NRC Commissioner Forrest J. Remick that nuclear power is the most cost-effective way to boost capacity while meeting climate change goals is hardly the truth. (Allentown Morning Call, Your View, 3/22/2010) The so-called nuclear renaissance is already on life support with taxpayer loans. Some proposed new plants are being canceled by utilities as costs double and even triple. Ratepayers in Florida are already paying for new nuclear plants that havent even begun ...
This is completely insane. Contractors who remove black mold from homes, probably take better precautions from spreading and inhaling mold spores. Were talking about a type of radiation that is the worst kind to get inside your body. Its inevitable that this construction worker will probably develop cancer in his life. Whats even more troubling for me, is that this contractor didnt just [email protected] up one time, they screwed up again 6 months later! According to the article, they rushed the job to make deadlines and got sloppy. Remember, we are talking about dismantling a highly toxic and radioactive Plutonium Finishing Plant (PFT), which is part of the Hanford nuclear research complex, in the state of Washington. To take shortcuts on such a project is idiotic ...

Konstantin Skvorecky is a Russian science fiction writer. In 1946 he and several of his colleagues are called together by Stalin. The war with Germany is over, and the Soviet state needs a new enemy against whom to unite the population. Decadent America is clearly no use -- it is bound to collapse in a few years -- so Skvorecky and his friends are asked to craft a believable tale of alien invasion. In their story the alien attacks, conducted using powerful invisible rays, result in the meltdown of a nuclear power station on the east coast of the USA, the shooting down of an American spacecraft, and the destruction of another nuclear power station, this time in the Ukraine. Forty years later, in the wake of the Three Mile Island accident and the Challenger disaster, Skvorecky finds himself racing to Chernobyl in a valiant attempt to thwart an alien plan that he thought he had invented. Or does he? Adam Roberts is a keen student of science fiction, and most of his novels seem to be inspired by some well

TOKYO (MarketWatch) -- Japans Toshiba Corp. (6502.TO) said Friday it was independently designing a new boiling-water reactor, or BWR, for use in nuclear power plants. We are making a preliminary conceptual design for a next-generation BWR, a company spokesman said. Toshiba, a Tokyo-based company whose businesses run from consumer electronics to large industrial infrastructure, has developed its nuclear reactor business together with General Electric Co. (GE) for over 40 years. But in November, GE agreed to integrate its nuclear operations with Hitachi Ltd. (6501.TO), fueling speculation that GE and Toshiba could eventually become rivals. A report Friday in The Nikkei said Toshiba would market a BWR on its own by 2015. The Toshiba spokesman said the new reactor was being chiefly designed for the domestic market, as the Japanese government was planning to upgrade its current generation of reactors from around 2030. It is too premature to discuss competition with GE, he said, adding that the ...
Large quantities of materials arising from the decommissioning of nuclear facilities are non-radioactive per se. An additional significant share of materials is of very low-level or low-level radioactivity and can, after having undergone treatment and a clearance process, be recycled and reused in a restricted or unrestricted way. Recycle and reuse options today provide valuable solutions to minimise radioactive waste from decommissioning and at the same time maximise the recovery of valuable materials. The NEA Co-operative Programme on Decommissioning (CPD) prepared this overview on the various approaches being undertaken by international and national organisations for the management of slightly contaminated material resulting from activities in the nuclear sector. The report draws on CPD member organisations experiences and practices related to recycling and reuse, which were gathered through an international survey. It provides information on improvements and changes in technologies,
The United States goal is to work with Iran to refit the reactor in such a way that it can no longer produce weapons grade material.. However, Iran maintains that the United States and other partner nations will soon provide advanced equipment for the reactor, which is located near the Iranian industrial city of Arak.. A spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the Islamic Republics main nuclear regulator, said on Tuesday that the United States and several other nations would begin supplying Iran equipment so that it can modernize the nuclear reactor.. Four countries of the [nuclear negotiating team] have accepted to cooperate with Iran in supplying advanced equipment for the (Arak) reactor and different other issues, Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for the Iranian nuclear authority, said Tuesday.. Kamalvandi said that while Iran could complete the modernization on its own, it has sought the world powers assistance to accelerate the job.. The issue of Arak was a key ...
In the United States, nuclear plants are decommissioned using two strategies:. Decontamination (DECON) is the relatively faster method of decommissioning a nuclear reactor and involves removing all fuel and equipment from the power plant. The fuel and equipment represent the bulk of the irradiated material on the site and are removed for separate storage and decontamination. DECON can take at least seven years and allows for the relatively quick return of the land for reuse.. Safe Storage (SAFSTOR), also known as deferred dismantling, involves containing and monitoring the reactor and equipment until radiation drops to safe levels. The SAFSTOR timeline allows for up to 50 years of containment followed by up to 10 years for decontamination. The longer timeline of the SAFSTOR method can allow some radioactive contamination to decay to safe levels, reducing the amount of radioactive material that must be disposed of, which can reduce the total decommissioning cost. Operators also have more time to ...
The cost of cleaning up the Sellafield nuclear site has reached £67.5bn, with no indication of when the cost will stop rising, according to a report.Over decades, successive governments have failed to get to grips with this critical problem, to the point where the total lifetime cost of decommissioning the site has now reached £67.5 billion, and theres no indication of when that cost will stop rising, she said.Furthermore, now that Cumbria County Council has ruled out West Cumbria as the site of the proposed geological disposal facility, a solution to the problem of long-term storage of the waste is as far away as ever. | Climate & Clean Air Watch

A gas-cooled nuclear reactor whose nuclear-fuel elements are constituted by graphite-encapsulated nuclear fuel particles and have graphite coatings is shut down in accordance with the present invention by introducing into the primary coolant gas circulation, a gadolinium-containing substance which is dispersed in the primary cooling gas before the latter enters the space between the fuel elements within the reactor core so that the gadolinium-containing substance is at least partly deposited on the free graphitic surfaces of the fuel elements.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - An Oregon company has asked federal officials to approve its design for a small commercial nuclear reactor that a Utah energy cooperative wants to build in Idaho.. NuScale Power delivered a 12,000-page application last week to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the modular reactor, starting a review process expected to take more than three years, the company said in a statement.. It said its the first such commercial design submitted to the commission.. We are confident that we have submitted a comprehensive and quality application, and we look forward to working with the NRC during its review, said Dale Atkinson, chief operating officer and chief nuclear officer at NuScale.. In August, Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems identified a 35-acre site at an 890-square-mile U.S. Department of Energy site in eastern Idaho where it hopes to build the reactor capable of producing 50 MW.. Officials said as many as 12 reactors could be built to produce a total of 600 MW ...
The authors give the basic principles of an analog device for solving a system of differential equations describing the behavior of a nuclear reactor with respect to time. Systems of this type are difficult to solve, especially when the reactivity varies with time. The proposed device may be used for solving problems involving six groups of delayed neutrons, or may alternatively be programmed for a simplified equation with a single group of delayed neutrons. The proposed computer may be used in studying high-power reactors where the maximum neutron density in the core may reach 10 to the 15th power n/cu cm.*ANALOG COMPUTERS)

A Certified Berkshire programme continues to lead niche pork production markets based on its meat quality advantage over commodity-based pork. This economic incentive is especially valuable for smaller, more traditional pork producers. The disadvantages of these Berkshire pigs are fatter carcasses, slower gains, and less efficient feed conversion compared to commodity pork production. Consequently, these pigs are often a better fit for less intensive or lower cost facilities production type systems.. Most Berkshire pork niche production systems require access to bedding and limit the use of antibiotics and feeding of animal-proteins in feeds. In Iowa, producers of Berkshire pork often raise their pigs in existing older bedded barns or hoop barns because this type of system matches the housing requirements of their markets. Housing influences the thermal environment that pigs experience and thus influences growth rate and nutritional requirements of growing pigs.. Better understanding of feed ...

Global sea levels are expected to rise as a result of climate change, which will lead to the inundation and erosion of low lying coastal areas and accelerate the intrusion of seawater into sub-surface sediments. Many of the UKs legacy nuclear facilities are located in close proximity to the shore, raising questions regarding the potential mobilisation of radionuclides during sea level rise. Here batch and column experiments were used to simulate and investigate the effect of these processes on the mobilisation of key radionuclides Tc, 90Sr and U from oxic and reduced sediments under sea level rise scenarios. Strontium-90 was rapidly mobilised from exchangeable surface sites from oxic sediments during inundation and erosion scenarios with seawater (≈ 60%). Strontium release was driven by ion exchange between Sr90 and Mg2+ cations present in high concentrations in seawater. Uranium release from oxic and reduced sediments was kinetically controlled, characterised by slow release from a range of ...
