The TMI-2 NPP is equipped with a Babcock and Wilcox (B & W) reactor. The key thermal-hydraulic design features which differentiate the B & W reactor from the Westinghouse reactor, widely spread solution in the world (i.e., adopted by other vendors) for the production of electricity, hereafter called standard PWR, are the following: (1)Cited by: 1.

The study included review of documents, interviews, and depositions at Three Mile Island, Babcock and Wilcox, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) during June, July, and August Analysis of the information obtained was conducted almost exclusively by the writer. A methodology was developed to assess the operational performance of nuclear power plants through an integration of thermal-hydraulic and human factors analysis techniques together with inputs.

  During 16 years at Babcock & Wilcox, he headed vibration analysis and design teams developing and testing innovative power plant equipment. Since , as a professor at the University of Dayton, he has led the way in integrating engineering education with engineering practice to improve the product realization process.   28 Nuclear Engineering Handbook × 8 × 10 Source × CPS % power Power 2×10–3 amps Intermediate Thermal neutron flux in neutrons/cm2/sec at detector location × 0% (%) power Detector sensitivity 3 × 10–13 AMP/N/cm2/sec 2×10–11 amperes Detector.
