ACRS Subcommittee Meeting Preliminary Agendas

Reliability & Probability Risk Assessment and Plant Operations

  • November 1, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Weston), 8:30 a.m., Room T-2B3.
  • The joint Subcommittees will be briefed by the staff on progress related to two risk-informed regulatory programs under the scope of the Reactor Oversight Program (ROP), namely: (a) efforts to develop risk-informed improvements to the technical specifications, and (b) progress related to the Industry Trends Program (ITP) index for initiating events. This joint Subcommittee meeting is a follow-up to a prior briefing on the ROP at the 493rd meeting of the ACRS on June 6, 2002.

Thermal-Hydraulic Phenomena GSI-189

  • November 5, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Weston), 1:30 p.m.-5:30p.m., Room T-2B3.
  • The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the results of additional analyses to quantify uncertainties to support the NRC Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research's proposed recommendation to resolve GSI-189, Susceptibility of Ice Condenser and Mark III Containments to Early Failure from Hydrogen Combustion During a Severe Accident.

Safety Research Program

  • November 6, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Savio), 8:30 a.m., Room T-2B3.
  • The Subcommittee will review the NRC safety research program and prepare a draft of the ACRS Annual Research Report to the Commission.

Planning and Procedures

  • November 6, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Duraiswamy), 3:00p.m., Room T-2B1.
  • The Subcommittee will discuss proposed ACRS activities and related matters. A portion of this meeting may be closed pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c) (2) and (6) to discuss organizational and personnel matters that relate solely to internal personnel rules and practices of ACRS, and information the release of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

Thermal-Hydraulic Phenomena

  • November 12 (1:00 p.m.), 13-14 (8:30 a.m.), 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Boehnert), Room T-2B3.
  • On November 12, the Subcommittee will discuss the status of the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES) Rod Bundle Heat Transfer Program experiments being conducted at Pennsylvania State University. On November 13 and 14, the Subcommittee will continue its review of the Framatome ANP-Richland S-RELAP5 realistic thermal-hydraulic code version and its application to large-break LOCA analyses.

Future Plant Designs

  • November 21, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (El-Zeftawy), 8:30 a.m., Room T-2B1.
  • The Subcommittee will review the draft commission paper to be prepared by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory research regarding the options on policy issues for advanced reactor designs.

Planning and Procedures

  • December 4, 2002
  • 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD (Duraiswamy), 1:30 p.m., Room T-2B1.
  • The Subcommittee will discuss proposed ACRS activities and related matters.
