This conference proceedings examines the most recent research and developments related to the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation.  Held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in February 2004, this proceedings had sessions on safety assessment and regulatory requirements, experimental work, analytical work, and industry solutions.  The proceedings present the papers presented as well as a summary of discussions that took place.





Risk of Sump Plugging – Experimental Program

Nuclear Energy Agency

Assessment of the operational characteristics of the filtration function used during the recirculation phase of safety injection system (ECCS) and containment spray system (CSS) in the event of a break of the primary system in the containment has been performed by the “Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire” [1] for the French pressurised reactors (58 reactors) in particular the CPY series, 900 MWe pressurised water reactors (30 reactors) designed according Regulatory Guide 1.82 (Rev. 1). To estimate the risk involved, the following points were studied: ...
