Summary : This book provides a general introduction to the topic of buildings for resistance to the effects of abnormal loadings. The structural design requirements for nuclear facilities are very unique. In no other structural system are extreme loads such as tornadoes, missile and loud interaction, earthquake effects typical in excess of any recorded historical data at a site, and postulated system accident at very low probability range explicitly, considered in design. It covers the whole spectrum of extreme load which has to be considered in the structural design of nuclear facilities and reactor buildings, the safety criteria, the structural design, the analysis of containment. Test case studies are given in a comprehensive treatment. Each major section contains a full explanation which allows the book to be used by students and practicing engineers, particularly those facing formidable task of having to design complicated building structures with unusual boundary conditions.

Summary : In the late 1980s, the National Cancer Institute initiated an investigation of cancer risks in populations near 52 commercial nuclear power plants and 10 Department of Energy nuclear facilities (including research and nuclear weapons production facilities and one reprocessing plant) in the United States. The results of the NCI investigation were used a primary resource for communicating with the public about the cancer risks near the nuclear facilities. However, this study is now over 20 years old. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission requested that the National Academy of Sciences provide an updated assessment of cancer risks in populations near USNRC-licensed nuclear facilities that utilize or process uranium for the production of electricity. Analysis of Cancer Risks in Populations near Nuclear Facilities: Phase 1 focuses on identifying scientifically sound approaches for carrying out an assessment of cancer risks associated with living near a nuclear facility, judgments about the strengths and weaknesses of various statistical power, ability to assess potential confounding factors, possible biases, and required effort. The results from this Phase 1 study will be used to inform the design of cancer risk assessment, which will be carried out in Phase 2. This report is beneficial for the general public, communities near nuclear facilities, stakeholders, healthcare providers, policy makers, state and local officials, community leaders, and the media.

Summary : Between 1955 and 1992 organs were removed at post mortem examinations of nuclear workers and subjected to radiochemical analysis at various nuclear laboratory facilities. Individual chapters examine: British Nuclear Fuels Ltd: the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority; the trade unions and the compensation scheme; the National Radiological Protection Board; the Atomic Weapons Establishment; registries; strontium and the Medical Research Council; West Cumberland Hospital; the families. Evidence and assistance was received from all these stakeholders to discover the extent of the practice of organ removal. The Inquiry directed particular attention towards coronial and pathology practice, the number of deceased persons involved, the extent of organ removal and what was done with those organs that had been removed, the uses to which the resulting data were put, issues of knowledge and consent and the role of management. The Inquiry concludes that, in many cases, the families had been wronged. Organs were removed at post mortem and provided for analysis despite being of no possible relevance to the cause of death. The results of radiochemical analysis were seldom taken into account when the death was certified: they were important not for the coronial investigation but primarily for research. The blame lies mainly at the door of the pathologists who performed the post mortems. They were ignorant of the law and had not satisfied themselves that the relatives' consent had been obtained. In coronial cases, proper supervision would have prevented the abuse.

Summary : Handbook of Generation IV Nuclear Reactors presents information on the current fleet of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) with water-cooled reactors (Generation III and III+) (96% of 430 power reactors in the world) that have relatively low thermal efficiencies (within the range of 32 36%) compared to those of modern advanced thermal power plants (combined cycle gas-fired power plants – up to 62% and supercritical pressure coal-fired power plants – up to 55%). Moreover, thermal efficiency of the current fleet of NPPs with water-cooled reactors cannot be increased significantly without completely different innovative designs, which are Generation IV reactors. Nuclear power is vital for generating electrical energy without carbon emissions. Complete with the latest research, development, and design, and written by an international team of experts, this handbook is completely dedicated to Generation IV reactors. Presents the first comprehensive handbook dedicated entirely to generation IV nuclear reactors Reviews the latest trends and developments Complete with the latest research, development, and design information in generation IV nuclear reactors Written by an international team of experts in the field

Summary : The Dept. of Energy (DoE) oversees contractors that operate more than 200 "high-hazard" nuclear facilities, where an accident could have serious consequences for workers and the public. DoE is charged with regulating the safety of these facilities. A key part of DoE's self-regulation is the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), which develops, oversees, and helps enforce nuclear safety policies. This is the only DoE safety office intended to be independent of the program offices, which carry out mission responsibilities. This report examines: (1) the extent to which HSS meets elements of effective independent nuclear safety oversight; and (2) the factors contributing to any identified shortcomings with respect to these elements.

Summary : Recent studies in the U.K. have demonstrated an increased occurrence of childhood leukaemia in the vicinity of nuclear facilities involved in fuel reprocessing and weapons manufacturing. This study investigated whether or not there existed clusters of leukaemia among children born to mothers resident in the vicinity of nuclear facilities (research facilities; uranium mining, milling and refining; nuclear power generating stations) in Ontario. Seven hundred and ninety-five children from 0-4 years who died of leukaemia from 1950-86, and 951 children who were diagnosed with leukaemia from 1964-85, were identified from the Ontario Cancer registry. Residence at birth was obtained from birth certificates and residence at death was obtained from Ontario Cancer Registry records or death certificates. Analyses were performed separately for each type of facility, and for county and a 25-km radius. Relative risk estimates were calculated for each facility and each geographic area as the ratio of the observed over the expected number of events for each area. For the calculation of mortality ratios by residence at death, the expected values referred to the number of deaths that would be expected, on the basis of provincial rates, in a given population of children aged 0-4 years. For the calculation of mortality and incidence ratios by residence at birth, the expected values referred to the number of events that would be expected for a given number of live births.

Summary : Designs for nuclear power plants increasingly include passive features. A major focus of the design of modern fast reactors is on inherent and passive safety. Inherent and passive safety features are especially important when active systems such as emergency shutdown systems for reactor shutdown are not functioning properly. This publication discusses the past experience in the development of such systems along with the research that is ongoing. It is a comprehensive publication which provides information on the basic design principles for passive shutdown systems and the related operational experience gathered so far, and also reviews the innovative concepts under development and the needs for research and development and qualification tests.
