1. NAME AND TITLE
PRISIM: Plant Risk Status Information Management System
JBF Associates, Knoxville, Tennessee, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
C and Modula 2; IBM PC, IBM PC/XT, IBM PC/AT.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
PRISIM allows inspectors to quickly access probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) information and use it to update risk analysis results, reflecting a nuclear plant's status at any time. PRISIM also allows regulators to access PRA information and modify the information to assess the impact the changes may have on plant safety.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTIONS
The PRA results in PRISIM are based on core damage frequency. PRISIM does not incorporate the results of assessments of plant damage, containment responses, or public health consequences. Only point estimate PRA results are presented.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Many of the results in PRISIM do not reflect the effects of operator recovery actions. Recovery actions are actions that operators can take to maintain core cooling during accidents involving failures of the designed emergency cooling system.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
The code is highly interactive and response time is very quick.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
PRISIM runs on the IBM PC and compatibles with a math co-processor, 640 K of memory, EGA or VGA graphics. PRISIM requires 13 mb of hard disk storage.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code was written is in C and Modula 2. PRISIM will run under DOS 2.1 or higher operating system.
