Brady Hanson Recognized for Work on Yucca Mountain Regulatory Integration Team

February 2005
ETD's Brady Hanson was recognized by Deputy Director of the Yucca Mountain Project, John Arthur, for his outstanding contributions to Regulatory Integration Team. Brady and the other members of the integration team reviewed 25 models detailing various aspects of the planned nuclear waste repository's performance. This review was motivated based on comments from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission during a preliminary review of three Yucca Mountain Project models and on the project's desire to assure that all of the models were consistent, transparent, and accurate. Based on the issues raised in the review, the models were revised. Given his expertise in spent nuclear fuels, Brady was the clad degradation model report "checker." As a checker, Brady had equal responsibility with the author for verifying the accuracy of the revised report. He ensured that every reference referred to the correct information and that procedures were followed. Congratulations, Brady!
