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.





Safety Analysis Performed in Switzerland for the Resolution of the Strainer Clogging Issue

Nuclear Energy Agency

After the Barsebäck 2 strainer clogging incident from 28 July 1992, a short term and a long term action programme was initiated by the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate to resolve the strainer clogging issue [1]. The issue was closed in 1994 based on implemented modifications of suction strainers (flow area largely increased by a factor of 7 to 30) for BWRs and the approval of the strainer design based on plant specific analysis for PWRs. The key parameters used in the plant specific analysis are still surveyed within the plant specific ageing programme. The work presented ...
