    • Analyzing the safety impact of containment inerting at Vermont Yankee 

      Heising, Carolyn D. (Carolyn DeLane), 1952-; Lepervanche-Valencia, José Gregorio; Pilat, E. E., 1937-; Slifer, Bruce C. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, 1980], 1980)
      Post-accident hydrogen generation in BWR containments is analyzed as a function of engineered hydrogen control system, assumed either nitrogen inerting or air dilution. Fault tree analysis was applied to assess the failure ...
    • Reactor physics calculation of BWR fuel bundles containing gadolinia 

      Morales, Diego; Lanning, David D.; Pilat, E. E., 1937- (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, [1977], 1977)
      A technique for the calculation of the neutronic behavior of BWR fuel bundles has been developed and applied to a Vermont Yankee fuel bundle. The technique is based on a diffusion theory treatment of the bundle, with ...
