Validation of ANS-5. 1 as the decay heat standard at the Savannah River Plant

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) is upgrading the methods used to predict the post shutdown decay heat of the Savannah River reactors by implementing procedures based on the ANS Decay Heat Power in Light Water Reactors standard. This approach takes advantage of the large volume of research used in developing the standard and establishes compatibility with the nuclear industry. To qualify the decay heat standard for use, a series of comparisons were made between detailed decay heat calculations performed using the SHIELD code system and results obtained from the standard.
