Temperature history for canistered fuel lag storage areas during the loss of cooling air at the receiving and handling building of the MRS Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Pacific Northwest Laboratory has analyzed the temperature history at a canistered fuel lag storage area during a postulated failure of the cooling system. A two-dimensional analysis was performed using the GE2D computer code, which accounts for thermal radiation, conduction, and convective heat transfer. The results indicate that the system may not reach a steady-state condition because heat transfer through the top and the bottom of the system is not enough to remove the energy generated in the canistered fuel. Although limits for abnormal operation have not been set, the temperatures do not reach limiting conditions for normal operation for ... continued below

A two-dimensional analysis was performed using the GE2D computer code, which accounts for thermal radiation, conduction, and convective heat transfer. The results indicate that the system may not reach a steady-state condition because heat transfer through the top and the bottom of the system is not enough to remove the energy generated in the canistered fuel. Although limits for abnormal operation have not been set, the temperatures do not reach limiting conditions for normal operation for 32 hours, which should be enough time to repair the cooling system.
