The material covered in this report includes the work of several
Laboratory divisions, each of whose activities is coordinated by the
Nuclear Safety Program Director through the division representatives.
Most of the programs are funded by the USAEC Division of Reactor Develop-
ment and Technology and administered by branches reporting to the Assis-
tant Director for Nuclear Safety, A. J. Pressesky, including the Research
and Development Branch under S. A. Szawlewicz, the Engineering and Test
Branch under H. G. Hembree, the Environmental and Sanitary Engineering
Branch under W. G. Belter, and the Analysis and Evaluation Branch. Small
amounts of work are performed for the Division of Production and the
Division of Technical Information. However, for convenience in the pre-
sentation of technical information, no attempt is made in this report to
identify the support for each project.
The ORNL Nuclear Safety Program involves tasks in several Laboratory
divisions and is closely related to programs at other Laboratories. Or-
ganization of the Laboratory program is shown in the chart appended to
this report. Some of the work in this program is in direct support of
other commission programs; for example, the LOFT program of Phillips
Petroleum Company at the National Reactor Testing Station and the CSE
(Containment Systems Experiment) of Battelle's Pacific Northwest Labo-
ratories at Hanford. Complementary activities are conducted at a number
of Laboratories, which in addition to those mentioned above, include
Battelle Memorial Institute-Columbus, Brookhaven National Laboratory,
Argonne National Laboratory, the Harvard Air Cleaning Laboratory, and
others. Other portions of the ORNL work are concerned with joint in-
dustry-AEC funded programs. For example, industry's Pressure Vessel Re-
search Committee (PVRC) is directly involved in the Heavy-Section Steel
Technology program and the studies of piping, pumps, and valves for nu-
clear service. In addition, the ORNL program now has subcontracts with
more than 15 other research or engineering installations.
In the course of the research and development work reported herein,
several trends have become quite evident. There is (1) increased in-
dustry-AEC cooperation in the conduct of nuclear safety research and
