SECTION 1
SYSTEMS
This section of the handbook treats systems (e.g., confinement systems, radiation protection,
and effluent monitoring and controls) typically used in nuclear facilities to control radiation or
radioactive material. The specifics of designing these systems are developed in an iterative
fashion by considering hazards and opportunities (alternatives) for prevention and mitigation of
accidents involving the hazards. This section provides information based on experience,
which the designer may use when developing the design.
1.1
CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS
Introduction and Scope. Safety ventilation and off-gas systems are generally
1.1.1
designed to operate in conjunction with physical barriers to form a confinement
system that limits the release of radioactive or other hazardous material to the
environment and prevents or minimizes the spread of contamination within the
facility. Confinement systems should be designed to--
prevent (if possible) or minimize the spread of radioactive and other
hazardous materials to occupied areas;
minimize the release of radioactive and other hazardous materials in
facility effluents during normal operation and anticipated operational
occurrences;
minimize the spread of radioactive and other hazardous materials within
unoccupied process areas; and
limit the release of radioactive and other hazardous materials resulting
from accidents, including those caused by severe natural phenomena
and man-made events.
