ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pratt & Whitney PW4000 series turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive borescope inspections (BSI) or fluorescent penetrant inspections (FPI) for cracks in the anti-vortex tube (AVT) shelf slots on the 10th stage disk of the high-pressure compressor (HPC) drum rotor disk assembly. This proposed AD results from 47 reports received since 2007 of HPC 10th stage disks found cracked in the AVT shelf slots during shop visit inspections. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the HPC 10th stage disk, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:43 Jul 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 We invite you to send us any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA– 2010–0596; Directorate Identifier 2010– NE–22–AD’’ in the subject line of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend the proposed AD in light of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact with FAA personnel concerning this proposed AD. Using the search function of the Web site, anyone can find and read the comments in any of our dockets, including, if provided, the name of the individual who sent the comment (or signed the comment on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You may review the DOT’s complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19477–78). PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 40757 Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this proposed AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647–5527) is the same as the Mail address provided in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt. Discussion Since 2007, we have received 47 reports of HPC 10th stage disks found cracked in the AVT shelf slots during shop visit inspections. Investigation has revealed the root cause of the cracks to be the slot configuration in the 9th stage compressor stator inner shroud. The number of slots matches the number of anti-vortex tubes and causes an aerodynamic interaction during engine operation. This interaction results in high-cycle-fatigue cracks in the AVT shelf slots on the 10th stage disk of the HPC drum rotor disk assembly. This condition, if not corrected, could result in failure of the HPC 10th stage disk, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane. Relevant Service Information We have reviewed and approved the technical contents of Pratt & Whitney Service Bulletin (SB) No. PW4ENG 72– 799, dated January 22, 2010, and SB No. PW4G–100–72–226, dated April 22, 2010, that describe procedures for inspecting for cracks in the AVT shelf slots on the 10th stage disk of the HPC drum rotor disk assembly. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other products of this same type design. We are proposing this AD, which would require initial and repetitive BSI or FPI for cracks in the AVT shelf on the 10th stage disk of the HPC drum rotor disk assembly. The proposed AD would require you to use the service information described previously to perform these actions. Interim Actions These actions are interim actions and we may take further rulemaking actions in the future. E:\FR\FM\14JYP1.SGM 14JYP1

Discussion

    The NRC has recently published a proposed rule that would place the 
security requirements for use of category 1 and category 2 quantities 
of radioactive material into a new part 37 of title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations. The proposed rule was published on June 15, 2010 
(75 FR 33902), and the public comment period runs through October 13, 
2010. Documents related to the proposed rule can be found at http://www.regulations.gov by searching on Docket ID NRC-2008-0120.
    In conjunction with the proposed rule, the NRC has developed 
implementation guidance. The implementation document provides guidance 
to a licensee or applicant for implementation of proposed 10 CFR part 
37, ``Physical Protection of Byproduct Material,'' specifically 
category 1 and category 2 quantities of radioactive material. It is 
intended for use by applicants, licensees, Agreement States, and NRC 
staff. The document describes methods acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing proposed 10 CFR part 37. The approaches and methods 
described in the document are provided for information only. Methods 
and solutions different from those described in the document are 
acceptable if they meet the requirements in proposed 10 CFR part 37. 
The guidance is provided in the form of questions and answers on the 
provisions of the proposed rule. The draft implementation guidance 
document for proposed 10 CFR part 37 is available electronically under 
ADAMS Accession Number ML101470684, and can also be found at http://www.regulations.gov by searching on Docket ID: NRC-2010-0194.

    At this time, the NRC is announcing the availability for public 
comment of ``Implementation Guidance for 10 CFR part 37 Physical 
Protection of Byproduct Material, Category 1 and Category 2 Quantities 
of Radioactive Material.'' The document provides guidance on 
implementing the provisions of proposed 10 CFR part 37, ``Physical 
Protection of Byproduct Material.'' The NRC is planning to hold two 
public meetings to obtain public input on the draft implementation 
guidance in September 2010. Information on these meetings will be 
posted on http://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID NRC-2010-0194.
