Regarding requests from GRS

Martin Sonnenkalb at GRS is one of the foremost international MELCOR experts. (he runs MELCOR and is quite knowledgeable)

He already has the MELCOR code and I would be fairly sure he has MELCOR decks for each of the designs GRS has a direct interest in.

Why would he need a Peach Bottom input file? GRS has the capability with the MELCOR code to analyze their own plants.

Hold on, is there someone who can do this besides Charlie? Someone in Richard’s branch?

Hello Jennifer –

How are you? I am sure overly busy with Japan, as many of us are. We have requests for information from all over in many forms.

As I am sure you know, the German government has ordered the shutdown of 7 of their plants that were built before 1980. GRS would like to run MELCOR on Mark 1 containments to fight back with some analysis.

Would NRC/RES be able to share an input deck for Mark 1 containment with GRS? Maybe someone from SOARCA branch could talk with someone in GRS?

If so, I can send along a NRC name and number or I can get my German colleague here to give me the GRS contact, so that NRC can contact GRS directly.
