2016 Nuclear and Facility Safety Workshop: Aug. 6-12
Argonne National Laboratory and the Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG) are hosting the 2016 Nuclear and Facility Safety Workshop: Solutions in Nuclear Safety from August 6-12, 2016.
The 2016 Nuclear and Facility Safety Workshop is an essential forum for safety analysis professionals to attend technical training for professional enhancement and qualification, share best practices, present lessons learned, provide key input for development of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) standards, collaborate on industry issues and gather experts to help identify and solve crucial DOE nuclear safety challenges.
The workshop flyer and registration page provide details about technical training, presentations, technical panels and sessions, as well as information about workshop events such as the welcome dinner, site tour and Chicago Lake Michigan event.
Workshop presentations will include a detailed account of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant DSA revision, along with an updated presentation on Fukushima by JAEA members. Also, in conjunction with the technical group meetings on Monday, August 8, a special panel discussion will be held on the details of the Accident Analysis Handbook that is currently being developed and finalized. Paper presentations will given on Thursday, August 11, and Friday, August 12.
The JAEA paper session “Fukushima Daiichi Site Remediation and Progress on Technical Issues through the JAEA Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science (CLADS)” will be led by Kevin O’Kula on Tuesday, August 9, at 3 p.m. Papers to be included in the presentation are:
- “Japanese Activities for Fukushima-Daiichi Decommissioning Research” by K. Okamoto and T. Okawa
- “High-temperature Structure Behavior during Severe Accident” by K. Okamoto, B. Jo and S. Ueda
- “Irradiation Experiments of Simulated Wastes of Carbonate Slurry” by R. Nagaishi, T. Motooka and I. Yamagishi
- “Seawater Effects on Soundness of Spent Fuel Cladding Tube” by T. Matooka, F. Ueno and M. Yamamoto.
