Steady State Heat Losses From Radio Waste Storage Tanks in Oak Ridge National Laboratory Tank Farm

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Six cylindrical radio waste storage tacks in an Oak Ridge NationaL Laboratory tank farm are arranged in a rectangular array two tanks wide and three tanks long with a 60-ft distance between tank centers. The tanks are 50 ft in diameter and 13 to 15 ft tall. They are buried in the earth with five foot of cover soil. An electrical analog of the farm was constructed in order to determine the steady state heat loss rates from tanks at the boiling point, 230 deg F, to the winds over the earth with an average year round temperature of 60 ... continued below

An electrical analog of the farm was constructed in order to determine the steady state heat loss rates from tanks at the boiling point, 230 deg F, to the winds over the earth with an average year round temperature of 60 deg F. The steady state heat loss rate per tank ranged from 4,000 to 44,000 Btu/ hr dependmg upon the location of the tank and whether the soil was dry or moist. (auth)
