  • Content Description: This paper documents the radiation analysis performed for the storage area of a generic Centralized Interim Storage Facility (CISF) for commercial spent nuclear fuel (SNF) to establish the CISF Protected Area, Unrestricted Area, and Restricted Area boundaries. In order to model a large (6000 cask) storage array with a reasonable amount of analysis time and effort, a simplified calculational model was developed for the CISF. The CISF is designed to accommodate several different types of SNF storage systems. In order to simplify the calculation of dose rates from the storage area, the Westinghouse Large PWR Multi-Purpose Canister (MPC) is selected as a representative storage system, since sufficient information is contained in its Safety Analysis Report to allow accurate modeling, and the surface dose rates on the MPC are consistent with other storage systems.
