President, Nuclear Safety
Review Concepts Corporation
Dr. Corcoran is president of the Nuclear Safety Review Concepts Corporation in Windsor, CT, founded in 1993.His company's mission: Saving lives, pain, assets, and careers through thoughtful inquiry.
His organization provides root cause training, mentoring, advice, leadership, and assistance to a variety of high hazard industries, including chemical processing, construction, environmental site remediation, decommissioning, nuclear power, natural gas, electric transmission/distribution, and fossil power generation.He is the author of "The Phoenix Handbook", a comprehensive guide to root cause analysis.
He edits "The Firebird Forum" an electronic newsletter on root cause organizational learning in its ninth year of publication.Dr. Corcoran has served on over a dozen nuclear plant offsite safety review committees and as chair of the ANS Nuclear Reactor Safety Division.His work on critical safety functions influenced the industry direction in emergency procedures.
His recent assignments include service to the Yucca Mountain Project, the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, the Idaho National Laboratory, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Dr. Corcoran earned his Ph.D. in nuclear engineering at MIT, his MS in management at RPI, and his BS (with distinction) at the U.S. Naval Academy.He served in the nuclear Navy before managing physics, licensing, and engineering groups at a nuclear plant design firm.He is a registered Professional Engineer (nuclear) and is a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society.
He is a Senior Member of the American Society for Quality.He also belongs to Sigma Xi (The Scientific Research Society), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Dr. Corcoran has three grown daughters and two grand children, of which he is very proud.He and his wife share interests in hiking, kayaking, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, sailboarding, and other "quiet transportation sports."He has run fourteen marathons, hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and skied the High Rustler (double black diamond) slope at Alta, Utah and the Flying Kilometer at Les Arcs, France.

"I don't think the NRC staff has any idea what would really happen if they had a geyser coming out of the reactor vessel head," Dr. William R. Corcoran, head of Nuclear Safety Concepts in Windsor, Conn., said yesterday.
NRC staff did the analysis in response to questions about the rust hole discovery in the reactor head in March at FirstEnergy Corp.'s Davis-Besse plant along Lake Erie near Oak Harbor.
The questions were submitted jointly by Rep.
...
Dr. Corcoran said the NRC analysis did not fully consider phenomena that might have occurred in a hole-through-the-head accident.One, for instance, would be collateral damage caused by a high-pressure geyser of water pouring out of the hole in the reactor vessel.He said a geyser could tear loose insulation, mechanical components, and other material.The material could fall to the containment building floor along with the spilled reactor cooling water.
During the first 30-45 minutes of such an accident, reactor operators draw emergency cooling water from a special tank inside the containment building.When the tank empties, they start recirculating the spilled water by sucking it through a drain, or "sump," in the floor of the containment building.
Dr. Corcoran said material ripped loose by the geyser might plug the sump, cutting off emergency core cooling water and leading to a meltdown.
...
Dr. Corcoran holds a doctorate in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.He served in the U. S. Navy's nuclear submarine program, chaired the American Nuclear Society's reactor safety division, and was director of safety analysis for Combustion Engineering, a nuclear power plant manufacturer.

Bill Corcoran, president of Nuclear Safety Review Concepts Corp. in Windsor, Conn., and other safety analysts have argued that plants need better designs for fire protection, more spent fuel stored inside dry casks instead of cooling pools, and planning that anticipates more severe fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados and extended power outages - and combinations of them.
