Exponent Engineer Presents Paper at Nuclear Industry Meeting


June 16, 2011

Vinod Sharma, Senior Managing Engineer in Exponent's Houston Office, presented a paper on check valve performance improvement at the 2011 Nuclear Industry Check Valve Users Group Meeting this week.  Mr. Sharma presented the results of a study on the reliability of a significant population of check valves installed at a nuclear generating station. This paper also discussed some options for managing the inherent risk associated with an aging population of obsolete valves to minimize control room operator burden, as well as, unexpected impacts on O&M budgets and outage schedules.
