Nuclear criticality assessment of LEU and HEU element storage

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Criticality aspects of storing LEU (20%) and HEU (93%) fuel elements have been evaluated as a function of /sup 235/U loading, element geometry, and fuel type. Silicide, oxide, and aluminide fuel types have been evaluated ranging in /sup 235/U loading from 180 to 620 g per element and from 16 to 23 plates per element. Storage geometry considerations have been evaluated for fuel element separations ranging from closely packed formations to spacings of several centimeters between elements. Data are presented in a form in which interpolations may be made to estimate the eigenvalue of any fuel element storage configuration that ... continued below
