The ultimate heat sink and its directly associated heat transport systems addressed in this guide are required to remove residual heat from the core after reactor shutdown, and during and after appropriate operational states and accident conditions. The guide covers design considerations for various types of ultimate heat sinks and the directly associated heat transport systems, and for various types and sources of related heat transport fluids.
Foundations are the link between plant structures and subsoil. Information on the geology and subsurface characteristics of the site is an input for the design. Without proper adaptation of the design to the subsurface situation, safety may be impaired. This guide addresses the mechanical characteristics of different subsurface materials.
This publication is an update of IAEA Safety Series No. 44, published in 1976, necessitated by a number of developments in the technical and regulatory aspects of the management of wastes resulting from the mining and milling of uranium and thorium ores. It consists of two parts: a Code of Practice (Part I) and a Guide to the Code (Part II). The Code sets forth the requirements for the safe and responsible handling of the wastes, while the Guide presents further guidance in the use of the Code together with some discussion of the technology and concepts involved.
This safety guide represents an international consensus and understanding on principles for intervention and numerical values for generic intervention levels. It became clear during the Chernobyl Project that there was a need for clarification of the international guidance on intervention and, moreover, for a simple set of internally consistent intervention levels having some generic application internationally. The recommendations in this publication are the basis for the standards and numerical guidance related to intervention contained in the International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (jointly sponsored by FAO, IAEA, ILO, OECD/NEA, PAHO and WHO).
This guide outlines the factors to be considered to ensure that the operating organization has a sufficient number of qualified site personnel who are aware of their duties and responsibilities. It covers the organization for the nuclear power plant, the educational qualifications and experience of the persons recruited, the recruitment and training schedule, the training of operating personnel, the authorization of persons whose duties have an immediate bearing on safety, and re-training of personnel.
This report presents the views of the IAEA's International Nuclear Safety Advisory Group INSAG on the source term issue for LWRs of existing designs. The report considers the present status of source term research and analysis and their implications. It identifies problems which remain to be resolved and indicates areas where work should be initiated to improve safety.
