Crud Risk Assessment

Analysis Division Experience

Zachry’s Analysis Division personnel supported the development and analyses of the EPRI BWR crud deposition models and a risk assessment tool, CORAL, to predict tenacious crud deposition and assess the risk for crud-induced fuel cladding corrosion issues. Zachry’s Analysis Division personnel also supported the development and application of a the EPRI Boron-induced Offset Anomaly (BOA) risk assessment tool to evaluate corrosion, physical chemistry, and thermal-hydraulic effects for the prediction of corrosion product release. Zachry currently maintains CORAL and BOA for EPRI.
