Abstract

The Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES) supports the mission of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) by providing technical advice, tools, and information to identify potential safety and security issues and resolve them as appropriate, assessing risk and other nuclear safety and security issues, and developing and coordinating regulatory guidance. This includes conducting confirmatory experiments and analyses, developing technical bases that support the NRC's safety decisions, and preparing the agency for the future by evaluating the safety aspects of new technologies and designs for nuclear reactors, materials, waste, and security. The RES staff uses its own expertise and collaborates with partner offices at the NRC, commercial entities, national laboratories, other Federal agencies, universities, and international organizations.

This NUREG describes research being conducted by RES across a wide variety of disciplines ranging from fuel behavior under accident conditions to seismology to health physics. This is the fourth issuance of NUREG-1925, revised to capture new research and to update ongoing research projects. RES has organized this collection of information sheets by topical areas that summarize projects currently in progress. Each sheet provides the name(s) of the RES technical staff who can be contacted for additional information.
