NS SAVANNAH, ANALYSES OF POSTULATED ACCIDENTS
Analyses are made of the extent of damage to the N.S. Savannah's reactor vessel, components, and supports as the result of dropping the reactor head and control rod drive structure, the control rod transfer cask, the fuel element transfer cask, or the internals transfer cask during refueling operations. General conclusions are that the reactor vessel will remain intact and the internals will not be penetrated, the primary piping will not rupture, the vessel supports will not collapse and there will not be any flooding of the ship as a result of any of the postulated accidents.
