Abstract:

This report is the result of a human engineering evaluation of the ML-1 Mobile Low Power Nuclear Power Plant. The objectives were to conduct a human factors evaluation of the system, contribute the equipment design, and to provide human factors design criteria for future related systems. Because of the non-availability of operational equipment, the evaluation was limited to a static evaluation of the Control Cab. Numerous human factors shortcomings were found and recommendations are presented. Human engineering design criteria are presented for use in the design of future systems. Author
