bam and scram

The act of causing or contributing to a motor-vehicle accident on the road and fleeing the scene so as not to be identified and held responsible. Luckily, a more concentrated police presence near busy intersections has meant that there's only been one bam and scram over the past two years. No, officer, he left the scene—it was a bam and scram!

(v) The first scram signal is skipped and the protecting system takes actions following the second signal.
(vi) The worst effect of instruments measuring error is considered when scram signals are triggered.
20 seconds later, the first scram signal "absolute sliding rate of the turbine power" reaches its setting value of 28%/min, but it is skipped.
From Table 3, we can see that the second scram signal "absolute sliding rate of the system pressure" of the HTR-10GT reaches its setting value later than the HTR-10.
As core power increases, the first scram signal triggered by high flux is ignored in the simulation.
Thus, for the HTR-10GT, the power increases rapidly and the peak power is higher, which leads to an earlier scram signal for the second time.
When the second scram signal is detected, the protection system takes shutdown actions.
The first scram signal triggered by a short period measurement is soon received but is ignored as assumed.
