A Reliability Review of the Reactor Safety Study.
On August 20, 1974, the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) made public 14 volumes of the [Reactor Safety Study: An Assessment] [of Accident Risks in U.S. Commercial] [Nuclear Power Plants]. The AEC took two years, and a reported $3 million dollars, to complete the study. It allowed the public 60 days to comment on the report. The Sierra Club and the Union of Concerned Scientists formed a Joint Review Committee to evaluate the study, and published, in November 1974, a [Preliminary Review of] [the AEC Reactor Safety Study]. The comments of a number of researchers in the field of reliability appeared therein, and have been augmented here. Those comments call attention to severe shortcomings in the treatment of reliability in the [Reactor Safety Study]. 25 pp.
