Nuclear Power Plant Safety and Mechanical Integrity: Design by George Antaki, Ramiz Gilada

By George Antaki, Ramiz Gilada

Some of the most severe requisites for secure and trustworthy nuclear strength plant operations is the supply of powerfuble upkeep team of workers. in spite of the fact that, simply because the nuclear energy is experiencing a renaissance, it's also experiencing an exodus of professional upkeep pros as a result of retirement. the right advisor for engineers simply coming into the sphere or skilled upkeep supervisors who have to retain abreast of the newest top practices, Nuclear strength Plant upkeep: Mechanical platforms, apparatus and Safety covers the commonest concerns confronted in daily operations and offers useful, technically confirmed options. The e-book additionally explains how you can navigate some of the upkeep codes, criteria and rules for the nuclear strength industry.

  • Discusses 50 universal concerns confronted by way of engineers within the nuclear energy plant field
  • Provides recommendation for complying with overseas codes and criteria (including ASME)
  • Describes protection category for structures and components
  • Includes case stories to obviously clarify the teachings realized over many years within the nuclear energy industry

Sample text

From there, the load combinations flow down to plant-specific engineering procedures. Does each plant have its own load combination? Each plant has its load combination defined in its FSAR, but they comply with the SRP, and therefore they are all similar, even if the symbols for individual loads vary, for example, whether deadweight is labeled DW, W, or some other way. Because of safety relief valve discharges in a suppression pool, there are load sets unique to BWRs. Are load combinations for supports different from those for the supported components?

I. • Seismic Category II/I (sometime referred to as SC-II/I or even SC-II) are SSCs who themselves do not have a postseismic safety function but whose failure could affect an SC-I SSC. We say that the SC-II/I SSC is a source of interaction. These seismic interactions can take one of several forms: (1) falling or swing impact (sometimes called spatial interaction), (2) spray wetting, (3) flood, or (4) system interaction, such as the unintended closure of a valve on an erroneous electrical signal or on loss of air.

There are three general Seismic Categories of SSCs. The labeling for Seismic Categories has changed over the years, but they are basically as follows: • Seismic Category I constitutes SSCs that have a safety function following a postulated earthquake. I. • Seismic Category II/I (sometime referred to as SC-II/I or even SC-II) are SSCs who themselves do not have a postseismic safety function but whose failure could affect an SC-I SSC. We say that the SC-II/I SSC is a source of interaction. These seismic interactions can take one of several forms: (1) falling or swing impact (sometimes called spatial interaction), (2) spray wetting, (3) flood, or (4) system interaction, such as the unintended closure of a valve on an erroneous electrical signal or on loss of air.
