Evaluation of shielding analysis methods for spent fuel casks

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Accurate results from shielding analyses of spent fuel casks are increasingly important as the desire for optimized designs increases. ALARA concerns also contribute to the need for accurate dose evaluations for casks. Three areas require the attention of cask shielding analysts --- radiation source generation, utilization of cross-section data, and the radiation transport and dose evaluation. This paper reviews recent efforts carried out at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to evaluate the impact of various codes, data, and analysis assumptions on the calculation of radiation doses from spent fuel casks. 9 refs., 1 tab.
