NUCLEAR MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR FINAL SAFEGUARDS REPORT. VOLUME 2: INSPECTION AND TESTING PROGRAM
Inspection, testing, startup, and initial operation procedures are described for the N.S. Savannah reactor and propulsion components and systems. The program provides a means of checking material and equipment installation, determines the adequacy of test and operating procedures, proves systems operation following critical reactor operations, and provides personnel training and propulsion plant performance data. Inspection consists of all observations and indirect measurements made during installation procedures. Tests start with initial adjustment or operation of the equipment. The startup program includes component tests, system demonstrations, reactor fueling measurements, and dockside and sea trial propulsion plant demonstrations. All phases must be completed before the extended sea trials can begin. The test program is divided into preparation, demonstration, and analysis stages which occur in sequence with regard to any one system or operation.
