This is a 48 second video showing a test that was conducted after the 9/11 terrorist attack to ensure nuclear power plants are not vulnerable to a similar method of attack. The video shows a jet plane bolted to a track and flown into a simulated containment wall. The jet disintegrates on contact while the wall stands firm, showing that Nuclear Containment Buildings can withstand the impact.
I like to incorporate this video into my presentations because it is an easy way to help keep your audience engaged, and it also is a demonstration of the industry’s dedication to safety and robust plant designs.
You will need a computer, internet availability (if performed at work, verify in advance that work will allow you to access this video on YouTube), and a projector if it is for a large group. Speakers are optional but preferred, as the commentary is interesting.
