The SOARCA Process
Overall, the State-of-the-Art Reactor Consequence Analyses (SOARCA) process includes five general steps, as illustrated in the flowchart to the right. See the following pages for discussions of the methods and rationale that the project team uses in each step to determine the realistic consequences of the select severe accident scenarios:
- Step 1: Selecting Accident Scenarios to Model
- Step 2: Modeling Onsite Accident Progression and Mitigation Measures
- Step 3: Modeling Offsite Release of Radioactive Material
- Step 4: Modeling Emergency Response
- Step 5: Modeling Health Effects

My apologies for the sound quality. The training room has a speaker system, however it is never used for public meetings such as this. I have complained to the NRC about the poor sound quality and I have ask for them to utilize the sound system. Unfortunately they are not responsive to having good sound so that participants may actually hear the presentation.
