Learning to live with holdup

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Holdup of special nuclear materials in processing facilities is recognized by facility operators and regulatory agencies as an insidious materials control and accounting problem. However, there have been few serious efforts to address holdup as a materials accounting problem and to accommodate the legitimate concerns of both groups. This paper reviews past efforts and identifies several key elements relevant to resolving the problem in a pragmatic fashion. These key elements relate to the recognition of holdup as a serious materials accounting problem, innovations in holdup monitoring and their limitations, the role of modeling and sampling in holdup estimation, and the ... continued below

Description

Holdup of special nuclear materials in processing facilities is recognized by facility operators and regulatory agencies as an insidious materials control and accounting problem. However, there have been few serious efforts to address holdup as a materials accounting problem and to accommodate the legitimate concerns of both groups. This paper reviews past efforts and identifies several key elements relevant to resolving the problem in a pragmatic fashion. These key elements relate to the recognition of holdup as a serious materials accounting problem, innovations in holdup monitoring and their limitations, the role of modeling and sampling in holdup estimation, and the potential value of plant-specific materials accountability requirements. Suggestions are offered for developing cost-effective procedures for holdup measurements/estimation, combining available technologies with properly designed sampling plans.
