ACTIVITY RELEASE FROM THE N.S. SAVANNAH IN THE MAXIMUM CREDIBLE ACCIDENT

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The release of fission products that would occur following the maximum credible accident aboard the N.S. Savannah has been examined. Four significantly different, but realistic, operating histories were considered. The rate of release of noble gases and of iodine isotopes as a function of time after the accident was determined for each operating history and for both normal and emergency reactor-compartment ventilation systems. The influence of radioactive decay and of the time delay in release and transport of activity through the containment system was investigated. Most of the results are expressed in terms of activity release and resultant individual exposures, ... continued below

Description

The release of fission products that would occur following the maximum credible accident aboard the N.S. Savannah has been examined.

The rate of release of noble gases and of iodine isotopes as a function of time after the accident was determined for each operating history and for both normal and emergency reactor-compartment ventilation systems. The influence of radioactive decay and of the time delay in release and transport of activity through the containment system was investigated. Most of the results are expressed in terms of activity release and resultant individual exposures, although some consideration is given to population exposures and to the interpretation of these results in the light of stationary reactor site criteria.
