Considerations Affecting Deep-Well Disposal of Tritium-Bearing Low-Level Aqueous Waste from Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Plants

Considerations Affecting Deep-Well Disposal of Tritium-Bearing Low-Level Aqueous Waste from Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Plants

Date: March 1977
Creator: Trevorrow, L. E.; Warner, D. L. & Steindler, M. J.
Description: Present concepts of disposal of low-level aqueous wastes (LLAW) that contain much of the fission-product tritium from light water reactors involve dispersal to the atmosphere or to surface streams at fuel reprocessing plants. These concepts have been challenged in recent years. Deep-well injection of low-level aqueous wastes, an alternative to biospheric dispersal, is the subject of this presentation. Many factors must be considered in assessing its feasibility, including technology, costs, environmental impact, legal and regulatory constraints, and siting. Examination of these factors indicates that the technology of deep-well injection, extensively developed for other industrial wastes, would require little innovation before application to low-level aqueous wastes. Costs would be low, of the order of magnitude of 10⁻⁴ mill/kWh. The environmental impact of normal deep-well disposal would be small, compared with dispersal to the atmosphere or to surface streams; abnormal operation would not be expected to produce catastrophic results. Geologically suitable sites are abundant in the U.S., but a well would best be co-located with the fuel-reprocessing plant where the LLAW is produced. Legal and regulatory constraints now being developed will be the most important determinants of the feasibility of applying the method.

Cost Estimate for the Commercial Manufacture of Lithium/Iron Sulfide Cells for Load-Leveling

Cost Estimate for the Commercial Manufacture of Lithium/Iron Sulfide Cells for Load-Leveling

Date: 1976
Creator: Towle, W. L.; Graae, Johan E. A.; Chilenskas, A. A. & Ivins, R. O.
Description: An estimate was made of the cost of commercial manufacture of batteries for load-leveling in utility networks, based on the lithium-aluminum/iron sulfide system. The battery design chosen is the 0.92-kWh cell proposed for the BEST Facility. The manufacturing plant was sized to produce 5000 of such cells per day. These cells are assembled for sale in battery cases or sub-modules, 24 cells to a case. The plant investment is estimated to be $12,500,000. A selling price of $29.16 per kWh is projected; this price yields a 25 percent return on invested capital. An allowance for recycle lithium yields a net price of $27.33 per kWh.

Cracking and Healing Behavior of UO2 as Related to Pellet-Cladding Mechanical Interaction : Interim Report, July 1976

Cracking and Healing Behavior of UO2 as Related to Pellet-Cladding Mechanical Interaction : Interim Report, July 1976

Date: October 1976
Creator: Kennedy, C. R.; Yaggee, F. L.; Voglewede, J. C.; Kupperman, D. S.; Wrona, B. J.; Ellingson, W. A. et al.
Description: A direct-electrical-heating apparatus has been designed and fabricated to investigate those nuclear-fuel-related phenomena involved in the gap closure-bridging annulus formation mechanism that can be reproduced in an out-of-reactor environment. Prototypic light-water-reactor uranium dioxide fuel-pellet temperature profiles have been generated utilizing high flow rates (approximately 700 liters/min) of helium coolant gas, and a re-circulating system has been fabricated to permit tests of up to 1000 h. Simulated light-water-reactor single- and multiple-thermal-cycle experiments will be conducted on both unclad and ceramic (fused silica) clad uranium dioxide pellet stacks. A laser dilatometer is used to measure pellet dimensional increase continuously during thermal cycling. Acoustic emissions from thermal-gradient cracking have been detected and correlated with crack length and crack area. The acoustic emissions are monitored continuously to provide instantaneous information about thermal-gradient cracking. Post-test metallography and fracture-mechanics measurements are utilized to characterize cracking and crack healing.

Critical Survey on Electrode Aging in Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

Critical Survey on Electrode Aging in Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

Date: December 1979
Creator: Kinoshita, K.
Description: To evaluate potential electrodes for molten carbonate fuel cells, we reviewed the literature pertaining to these cells and interviewed investigators working in fuel cell technology. In this critical survey, the effect of three electrode aging processes - corrosion or oxidation, sintering, and poisoning - on these potential fuel-cell electrodes is presented. It is concluded that anodes of stabilized nickel and cathodes of lithium-doped NiO are the most promising electrode materials for molten carbonate fuel cells, but that further research and development of these electrodes are needed. In particular, the effect of contaminants such as H2S and HCl on the nickel anode must be investigated, and methods to improve the physical strength and to increase the conductivity of NiO cathodes must be explored. Recommendations are given on areas of applied electrode research that should accelerate the commercialization of the molten carbonate fuel cell.

Cs--U--O Phase Diagram and its Application to Uranium--Plutonium Oxide Fast Reactor Fuel Pins

Date: August 1977
Creator: Davis, S. A.; Johnson, C. E.; Johnson, I.; Fee, D. C.; Shinn, W. A. & Staahl, G.
Description: Portions of the cesium-uranium-oxygen system have been investigated between 873 and 1273°K and a phase diagram has been constructed using our data and the data of other workers in the field. Thermodynamic and kinetic data have been used to examine the reactions that occur in fast-reactor fuel pins between fission-product cesium and the uranium oxide blanket. It was concluded that at the low oxygen potentials existing at the interface between the uranium-plutonium mixed-oxide and the uranium oxide blanket, Cs₂UO₄ is the only Cs-U-O compound expected to be formed in the uranium oxide blanket.

The Current Status of Fusion Reactor Blanket Thermodynamics

Date: April 1979
Creator: Veleckis, E.; Yonco, R. M. & Maroni, V. A.
Description: The available thermodynamic information is reviewed for three categories of materials that meet essential criteria for use as breeding blankets in deuterium-tritium (D-T) fueled fusion reactors: liquid lithium, solid lithium alloys, and lithium-containing ceramics. The leading candidate, liquid lithium, which also has potential for use as a coolant, has been studied more extensively than have the solid alloys or ceramics.

Cyclic-Deformation Resistance of Weld-Deposited Type 16-8-2 Stainless Steel at 593 Degrees C

Cyclic-Deformation Resistance of Weld-Deposited Type 16-8-2 Stainless Steel at 593 Degrees C

Date: August 1977
Creator: Raske, D. T.
Description: This report presents results from an investigation on the creep-fatigue and cyclic-deformation of Type 16-8-2 (16% Cr-8% Ni-2% Mo) stainless steel weld metal. Tests were conducted in air at 593 degrees C and a strain rate of 0.004 s⁻¹. Comparisons with data for Type 316 stainless steel base metal indicated that the weld metal has significantly longer fatigue lives for several tension hold-time tests. This is attributed to the fine duplex microstructure of the weld metal that inhibits the growth rate of cracks. Additional studies on the cyclic deformation behavior of the weld metal indicate that the material is strain-history dependent; therefore a unique stress-strain curve does not exist. Monotonic tension tests after cyclic straining result in a different stress-strain curve than obtained from companion fatigue tests at various completely reversed constant strain ranges. A comparison of the fracture morphology and creep-rupture specimens indicates that differences resulting from these tests can be attributed to different failure mechanisms.
