NRC’s Inspector General issues report
Overall findings of a survey of Nuclear Regulatory Commission personnel indicate that while the NRC maintains a few strengths compared to external benchmarks, results have declined since 2015 in a number of areas, according to a recent report from the NRC’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
The survey was conducted in February 2020 by Willis Towers Watson, a global risk-management, insurance brokerage, and advisory firm that has partnered with the OIG for more than 20 years to assess the NRC’s safety culture and climate, as well as other aspects of employee experience.

Conceptual design studies have been carried out at the Fusion Engineering Design Center (FEDC) on a succession of tokamak devices. In order to quickly assess the technical feasibility and to estimate the costs of competing poloidal field (PF) systems, it is desirable to develop simple, but accurate, rules for the structural design of these coils. In this paper we describe the rules developed for superconducting ring coils and illustrate their application to a specific example. This methodology may be easily adapted to resistive ring coil design.
