National Waste Terminal Storage Program: containment system concepts for transporting Type B quantities of transuranic waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A series of shipping containment system preliminary concepts for Type B quantities of transuranic waste have been formulated. The concepts were based on hypothetical accident protection requirements, potential waste forms, and selected hardware design/considerations. The concepts consist of suggested waste system containment configurations and construction material suggestions. Analysis of the concepts, based on such features as fabrication ease and cost, utility, and payload efficiency, revealed that concepts utilizing processed waste forms and/or disposable waste packages to provide a major portion of the required accident protection are most favorable.
