NS SAVANNAH OPERATION WITH FAILED FUEL ELEMENTS
This report provides a basis for developing explicit instructions for the operators for action following an observation of fuel element failure and background information for the nuclear advisor and shoreside engineering groups as they analyze the effects of the fuel failures. Appended to the main report, and comprising most of the document, is an analysis of fission product behavior, along with detailed discussions of precautions to be taken in reactor plant operation and in the steam plant when a leak from primary to secondary exists.
