WASH, 'The Reactor Safety Study', was a report produced in for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by a committee of specialists under Professor Norman "generated a storm of criticism in the years following its release".

In the years immediately after its release, WASH was followed by a number of reports that either peer reviewed its methodology or offered their own.

Nuclear reactor safety is achieved through a sound design and the use of safety systems, i.e. protective systems which counteract the accident and/or attenuate its consequences. The ideal scenario would be a design so perfect that no safety systems are necessary, that is, a design where accidents either cannot occur or, if they do, their consequences are acceptable.

The final chapter focuses on operating experience with nuclear reactors. It presents a of history of reactor incidents which are useful to study since much of the knowledge of reactor safety has come from the conscientious reporting of the details and circumstances of failure.

WASH was a report published by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (USAEC) in This report, called "Theoretical Possibilities and Consequences of Major Accidents in Large Nuclear Power Plants" (also known as "The Brookhaven Report"), estimated maximum possible damage from a meltdown with no containment building at a large nuclear reactor.

The granddaddy of all probabilistic risk assessments (PRA), the Reactor Safety Study (WASH), was greeted with such withering criticism that the Commission disavowed the report’s executive summary -- a public humiliation that seemed to consign its work to irrelevancy.

However, this accident study was rescued by a major reactor. The first part of the book covers basic reactor physics, including, but not limited to nuclear reaction data, neutron diffusion theory, reactor criticality and dynamics, neutron energy distribution, fuel burnup, reactor types and reactor safety.

this text is ideal for use in numerous courses and for self-study by professionals in basic Cited by: This Safety Requirements publication establishes requirements for all main areas of safety for research reactors, with particular emphasis on requirements for design and operation.

It explains the safety objectives and concepts that form the basis for safety and safety assessment for all stages in the lifetime of a research reactor.

Abstract. The contents of the book are presented under the following chapter headings: (1) nuclear power reactor characteristics, (2) safety assessment, (3) reactor kinetics, (4) reactivity feedback effects, (5) reactivity-induced accidents, (6) fuel element behavior, (7) coolant transients, (8) loss-of-coolant accidents, (9) accident containment, and (10) releases of radioactive materials.

On Augthe Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) made public 14 volumes of the [Reactor Safety Study: An Assessment] [of Accident Risks in U.S. Commercial] [Nuclear Power Plants]. The AEC took two years, and a reported $3 million dollars, to complete the study. It allowed the public 60 days to comment on the report.

Reactor Safety. Safety of a reactor is of prime concern to its owner for several reasons: to ensure the safety of the public, the reactor operators, and the investment itself.

Therefore, the design of a reactor is developed according to industry standards. These industry standards are. Don't show me this again. Welcome. This is one of over 2, courses on OCW. Find materials for this course in the pages linked along the left.
