Abstract : This report contains the results of a hazards analysis of the Preparation Building, Accumulator, Mechanical Removal Building, and Large Cells at the Western Area Demilitarization Facility (WADF) at Hawthorne, Nevada. The methodology used was a combination of failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) and fault tree analysis (FTA), with quantification accomplished through the use of a fault tree computer model. These techniques were described in the Priority 1 report and are repeated here in Appendix A.
