Safety Significance Determination

Red Wolf Associates can assist licensees in reclassifying potential findings in the safety significance determination process. Whether the issue requires manual calculations, detailed modeling, research of applicable literature, or some combination thereof, we can help you develop a case for reducing the finding level.

RWA can benchmark computer codes such as GOTHICâ„¢, RELAP, or TRACE to experimental or historical data to provide best-estimate room heat up or HVAC analyses, best-estimate containment analyses, steady-state or transient piping analyses to support inventory delivery, NPSH requirements, water hammer transients, and many other analyses. Our past work has resulted in event notification retractions and finding reclassifications. Please contact us with details of your current issue to find out how we can assist.
