Glass corrosion and irradiation damage performance

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Several options are under consideration for the disposition of surplus Pu resulting from weapons dismantling and site remediation. One option is immobilization of the Pu and scrap metal in class. followed by repository disposal. However, the final composition of class has not been selected, and the information regarding the long-term behavior of high Pu-loaded glasses under potential unsaturated repository conditions is limited. Additionally, several issues exist that are relevant to the feasibility of using glass as a waste form. In this paper, we discuss (1) the general behavior of Pu-loaded glasses when corroded by water; (2) the distribution of Pu, ... continued below

Additionally, several issues exist that are relevant to the feasibility of using glass as a waste form. In this paper, we discuss (1) the general behavior of Pu-loaded glasses when corroded by water; (2) the distribution of Pu, {sup 235}U, together with neutron absorbers during corrosion; (3) the effect of irradiation damage on glass corrosion behavior; and (4) the role of class modeling, in the calculation of long-term performance.
