THERMAL EVALUATION OF PRELIMINARY 21 PWR AUCF DESIGN

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This analysis is prepared by the Mined Geologic Disposal System (MGDS) Waste Package Development Department (WPDD) as specified in the Waste Package Implementation Plan (pp. 4-8, 4-11, 4-24, 5-1, and 5-13, Ref. 5.10) and the Waste Package Plan (pp.3-15, 3-17, and 3-24, Ref. 5.9). The design data request addressed herein is: Characterize the preliminary 21 pressurized water reactor (PWR) advanced (A) uncanistered fuel (UCF) waste package (WP) to show that the design is feasible for use in the MGDS environment. The purpose of this analysis is to respond to a concern that the long-term disposal thermal issues for the UCF ... continued below

Description

This analysis is prepared by the Mined Geologic Disposal System (MGDS) Waste Package Development Department (WPDD) as specified in the Waste Package Implementation Plan (pp. 4-8, 4-11, 4-24, 5-1, and 5-13, Ref. 5.10) and the Waste Package Plan (pp.3-15, 3-17, and 3-24, Ref. 5.9). The design data request addressed herein is: Characterize the preliminary 21 pressurized water reactor (PWR) advanced (A) uncanistered fuel (UCF) waste package (WP) to show that the design is feasible for use in the MGDS environment. The purpose of this analysis is to respond to a concern that the long-term disposal thermal issues for the UCF WP do not preclude UCF WP compatibility with the MGDS. The objective of this analysis is to provide thermal parameter information for the preliminary UCF WP design under nominal MGDS repository conditions. The results are intended to show that the design has a reasonable chance to meet the MGDS design requirements for normal MGDS operation and to provide the required guidance to determining the major design issues for future design efforts. Future design efforts will focus on UCF design changes as further design and operations information becomes available.
