Subject: Additional RES areas post Fukushirna Dai ichi
Per your request from this morning’s meeting, Re: Brian’s request for Additional Areas of Research post-Fukushima Dai ichi; four jump to mind:
1. Look at Emergency H2 venting. Prior to this event, I do not believe any of us would have postulated the size & destructive force of the H2 explosions inside the structure.
2. Look at emergency make-up to the Spent Fuel Pool (SPF). There may be some very economical ways to have a pre-piped standpipe for emergency re-filling.
3. Look at emergency core cooling and postulated alternatives given all ECCS systems are unavailable.
4. Look at emergency response given the larger area wide catastrophe and what can be expected.
