Although this report was not prepared by or under the auspices of
the Nuclear Safety Information Center, it is being distributed as an
NSIC report for the following reasons: (1) containment is one of the
most important interests of the NSIC and (2) the NSIC can provide the
continuity, as well as the source material, for future revisions. The
Nuclear Safety Information Center was established in March 1963 at the
Oak Ridge National Laboratory under the sponsorship of the U.S. Atomic
Energy Commission. The Center serves as a focal point for the collection,
storage, evaluation, and dissemination of information in the following
Containment of nuclear facilities
Fission-product release, transport, and removal
Nuclear instrumentation, control, and safety systems
Radioactive effluent control monitoring, movement, and dosage
Reactor transients, kinetics, and stability
Operational safety and experience
In addition to state-of-the-art reports in the above subject areas,
the Center prepares the quarterly technical progress review Nuclear Safety
and has a reference file stored on magnetic tape for the computer search
of safety information and the preparation of a quarterly indexed bibliog-
raphy of the nuclear safety literature.
Inquiries concerning the services, capabilities, and operation of the
Center should be addressed to:
