NS SAVANNAH, NUCLEAR MERCHANT SHIP DESIGN REVIEW OF THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENT IN THE CONTAINMENT VESSEL ON THE EQUIPMENT LOCATED THEREIN

Report contains the design reviews of : (1) power and control cables used inside the N.S. Savannah's reactor containment vessel; (2) the containment vessel air-conditioning system; and (3) the atmospheric corrosion due to containment environment. Documents on power and control cables used inside the containment were reviewed to determine the cables' suitability under environment conditions related to temperature, humidity radiation, nitric acid, pressure, and flammability. The Babcock & Wilcox Company specifications, drawings and related documents applying to the reactor containment vessel air-conditioning system are reviewed to evaluate the system's adequacy and reliability to maintain proper environment conditions inside the vessel. The design review of the atmospheric conditions within the containment vessel are to determine and evaluate the effects on the equipment located therein by humidity, temperature, pressure, nitrogen fixation, and nitric acid attack.
