Method for determining the fuel contribution to the source term in transport casks

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Detailed models and analytical procedures are applied to the many complex aspects of spent fuel in transport including characterization of the fuel's irradiation conditions and initial states at the time of shipment, determination of the dynamic forces on the fuel assemblies that result from regulatory transportation accidents, modeling and analysis of the fuel's mechanical response to these forces, and estimation of the releasable radioactivity in the event of cladding breach. The methodology adopts a combined deterministic/probabilistic analysis approach in which each aspect of the problem is appropriately treated on the basis of its level of determinability. The results are obtained ... continued below

The results are obtained in the form of failure probabilities for each regulatory event considered. 3 refs., 6 figs.
