Thank you Michael,

It's quite a privilege to know one of the few classic road techs.

You step into the drywell through the personnel hatch.

You are on the first of four floors with the basement beneath you.

On the second floor are 12 recirculation system nozzels. Two N1 suction nozzels on opposite sides of the reactor vessel, N1A serving as the zero degree point for the entire drywell, proceding clockwise from above and ten N2 discharge nozzels, N2A-K, there is no N2I.

On the third floor N4 nozzels, feedwater, typically four.

On the fouth floor, N3 nozzels, steam, typically four.


H3-tritium
   The basis of the bomb whose yield has no limit.
C14
   Carbon dating revolutionized our view of time.
N16
   Astonishingly powerful gamma.
Co60
   The famous gamma power plant nuclide.
Sr90
   Pure beta bomb product.
I131
   Gas like fission product famous at power plants.
C137
   Gamma bomb product.
Rn222
   The famous radon gas of basements and power plant exits.
U238
   The mother of all nuclides.
Pu239
   The scariest of all nuclides.
  




You mean RPV NOZZLES? No such thing as a Drywell nozzle.

In the book The Uranium People, Leona Marshall Libby Woods, Fermi's assistant at Chicago and famously the only woman, describes a moment when, having found a mistake in Fermi's calculations, they presented him with the correct calculation. He said, as he was prone to, affectionately, "You see, just as I said".

She describes a moment when a group of them stood, dumbfounded, as he casually listed a series of the most obscure and infrequented neutron interaction cross sections.

 "In science, particularly in physics or engineering education, a Fermi problem, Fermi question, or Fermi estimate is an estimation problem designed to teach dimensional analysis, approximation, and the importance of clearly identifying one's assumptions."

As I stared at his chair at the B reactor at Hanford, knowing that he knew exactly what they were doing, I wondered...clearly identify one's assumptions.

I just joined (recent Rad Pro graduate), looked at some of the READ THIS FIRSTs, and read some of the hotter discussion topics and now I am scared to post something in fear of retribution lol.

Hmmm two days later and 25 posts to date.  ;)

This forum can get to be like the TV show "Shark tank" except with real sharks with an attitude.  You had good reason to be concerned; or you may be fine.

Men are meant to be on ships, and ships are meant to be at sea,
