NS SAVANNAH SAFETY ASSESSMENT. SUMMARY REPORT OF VOLUMES 2 THROUGH 5

Five volumes assessing N.S. Savannah safety are summarized, dealing with engineering and construction, operations, radiological health, analyses of hypothetical accidents, and reactor system tests and sea trials. Particular safety features studied include: reactor system containment; containment vessel isolation; radioactive waste control; shielding; radiation monitoring; power plant reliability; operability of the power plant with failed fuel elements; emergency propulsion, steam, and electric power; reactor decay heat removal; reactor shutdown; ship maneuvering rates; centralized power plant control; ship movement; and protection of the rector system from chlorides. Figures and tables, comprising a large part of the report, provide data such as ship and reactor characteristics, training and organization, flow diagrams, component and containment vessel arrangement, and radiation monitoring.
