A Comparison of ARCON96 vs. Murphy & Campe Including Case Study Results

Stephen A. Vigeant, CCM and Carl A. Mazzola, CCM

To be presented at the Eight Nuclear Utility Meteorological Data User Group (NUMUG) Meeting

St. Charles, IL, May 9, 2002


Overview

  • Murphy-Campe endorsed by NRC for CR Habitability Analyses Since 1974

  • Other Methods Occasionally Used (K Factors)

  • ARCON96 Developed for More Realistic Treatment of Diffusion Near Buildings

  • Nuclear Plants Start Using ARCON96 to Reduce Conservatism

  • DG-1111 Endorses both ARCON96 and Murphy- Campe


Outline

  • ARCON96 vs. Murphy-Campe Methodologies

  • Compare Case Study Results

  • Explain Behavior

  • NRC Concerns in Application of ARCON96


ARCON96 Methodology

  • Straight Line Gaussian Plume Model

  • Ground-Level, Vent , and Elevated Releases

  • Low Wind Speed Plume Meander

  • Aerodynamic Wake Effects


ARCON96 Methodology

  • Diffuse Source Option

  • Sector Averaging Constant

  • Wind Direction Sector Width

  • Surface Roughness Length

  • Hourly Meteorological Data


ARCON96 Methodology

C/Q = [(u)(p)(S y)(S z)]-1 exp -1/2 (y/sy)2

where:

C/Q = relative concentration for a 1-hour period (sec/m3)

Sy = [sy2 + sy12 +sy22]1/2

Sz = [sz2 + sz12 +sz22]1/2

sy = normal atmospheric horizontal dispersion coefficient

sz = normal atmospheric vertical dispersion coefficient

sy1, sz1 = low wind speed corrections

sy2, sz2 =building wake corrections


ARCON96 Methodology

sy1 = 9.13E05[1 - (1+(x/1000 u))exp(-x/1000u]

sz1 = 6.67E02[1 - (1+(x/100 u))exp(-x/100u)]

sy2 = 5.24E-02u2A[1 - (1+(x/10A1/2))exp(-x/10A1/2)]

sz2 = 1.17E-02u2A[1 - (1+(x/10A1/2))exp(-x/10A1/2)]

u = wind speed (m/sec)

x = downwind distance (m)

y = horizontal distance from the center of the plume (m)

A = cross-sectional area of the building (m2)

Sector Averaging Used for Periods > 8 hours


Murphy-Campe Methodology

  • Straight Line Gaussian Plume Model

  • Point Source - Point Receptor

  • Diffuse Source - Point Receptor

  • Building Wake Only


Murphy-Campe Methodology

C/Q= [3upsysz]-1 (point source)*

C/Q= [u(psysz + A/(K+2))]-1(diffuse source)

where:

3 = wake factor based on Regulatory Guides 1.3 and 1.4

k = 3/(s/d)1.4

s = source to receptor difference (m)

d = containment structure width (m)

*elevation difference between a point source and a point receptor less than or equal to 30 percent of the building height


Murphy-Campe Methodology

Intermediate Averaging Times Based on 0-2 hour

C/Q Value:

AveragingOccupancyWind SpeedWind Direction

TimeFactorFactorFactor

0 - 8 hrs111

8 - 24 hrs15%/10% speed0.75 + F/4

1 - 4 days0.65%/20% speed0.50 + F/2

4 - 30 days0.45%/40% speedF

F is the fraction of time the wind blows the activity toward the receptor


Case Studies

  • Nine Meteorological Databases Included

  • Diffuse and Point Ground-Level Sources

  • Containment Walls, Vents, Relief Valves,

    Main Steam Line Breaks

  • Cross-Sectional Building Areas for Wake Effect Used when Appropriate

  • NRC/DG-1111 Guidance Used

CONCLUSIONS

  • ARCON96 Provides Lower C/QValuesthan Murphy-Campe in Most Cases

  • Lower ARCON96 C/QValuesGenerally Occur at Low-Wind Speed Sites

  • Higher ARCON96 C/Qs Occur at Moderate- Wind Speed Sites

  • Lower ARCON96 C/Qs Due to DominanceofLow-Wind Speed Plume Meander Effect

  • ARCON96 C/Qs Maximize at Moderate Wind Speeds (i.e., 3-4 m/sec)


NRC CONCERNS

  • Proper Use of Meteorological Data

    • 5 years on-site data

    • data QA (e.g., no nearby obstructions)

    • correct wind speed units

  • Avoid Vent (i.e. mixed mode) and Elevated Release Options (i.e., for short distances)

  • Avoid Application to Distances < 10 meters

  • Appropriate Use of Cross-Sectional Building Area for Wake Effect
