The ARCPlus™ software extends JENSEN HUGHES’ original ARC™ software to include management and refinement of fire safe shutdown assessments, fire hazards analyses, and fire Probabilistic Risk Assessments (PRAs). ARCPlus software supports facilities transitioning to NFPA-805 and those with traditional fire protection programs under 10 CFR 50.48(b). The Fire Data Manager (FDM) module interfaces with cable and raceway systems to facilitate development of fire safe shutdown data. The FDM component is designed to manage plant data unique to the needs of fire protection and fire PRA and provides a common data store that includes the ability to manage multiple component functional states.
ARCPlus™ software application includes:
- Fire Safe Shutdown Assessment
- Non-Power Operational Assessments
- Links to Safe Shutdown Database
- Compliance Strategy Library
- Manual Action Feasibility
- What-if Analysis
- Safe Shutdown/NSEA Data Management
- Manages Fire Hazards Analysis Data
- NFPA-805 Post Transition Documentation
- Manages Fire PRA Data
- Exports to PRA Quantification Software
The Fire Safety Analysis (FSA) module supports the development of LARs, provides post-transition Fire Safety Analysis reports, and serves as a repository for fire protection data
The Fire PRA module is designed to support NUREG/ CR-6850 tasks for the development and maintenance of the fire PRA models. It maintains the data associated with PAU, fire scenarios, ignition frequencies and also supports Multi-Compartment Analyses (MCA).
