Transient and Accident Analysis
Module: Accident Assessment
Outline Number: AC--1
Terminal Learning Objective:
Apply transient and accident analysis considerations to accident events.
Enabling Learning Objectives:
Discuss the assumptions used in the facility accident analysis.
Using the facility accident analysis curves, predict facility response to varied initial
Given a set of accident data, recognize the parameters to determine the system or
Given a set of accident data, evaluate parameters to determine if a loss of cooling flow
is occurring prior to equipment damage.
Given a set of accident data, identify when conditions have degraded to such an extent
that system or process damage is possible.
During simulated conditions, demonstrate a thorough understanding of, and the skills
needed to maintain and restore, the following safety conditions:
Transportation of fuels or wastes
Spent-fuel receiving and storage
Heat sink availability
Primary system integrity
For a given facility operational condition, identify and discuss the failure mechanism
(human or equipment) that would provide a large risk of facility damage.
List the parameters used and identify the indications of a degraded process.
