Rationale for determining spent fuel acquisitions for repository testing

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A rationale for selecting commercial spent nuclear fuels for use as testing materials for the Yucca Mountain Project was developed. A review of experimental data from fuel performance testing was conducted and performance-affecting attributes pertinent to storage and disposal conditions were identified. These were used to form the basis for a fuel-selection strategy designed to ensure adequate and representative samples are available for storage- and disposal-relevant testing.
