    2 Preventing Nuclear Terrorism in Pakistan ABOUT AUTHOR Abdul Mannan Director, Transport and Waste Safety, Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority (PNRA) Mr. Mannan was a Visiting Fellow at The Henry L. Stimson Center from November February File Size: 1MB. The Economics of the Back End of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Nuclear Energy Agency The feasibility and costs of spent nuclear fuel management and the consequent disposal of ultimate waste continue to be the subject of public debate in many countries, with particular concern often expressed over the lack of progress in implementing final disposal.

    Background Information Regarding Transportation of Spent Nuclear Fuel The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission monitors and regulates the transportation of spent nuclear fuel. The license application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) does not and is not required to address the safety of SNF File Size: KB. The database uses the results from existing models and codes such as RADTRAN, RISKIND, INTERLINE, and HIGHWAY to estimate transportation-related impacts of transporting spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste from commercial reactors and U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) facilities to Yucca Mountain.

    Regulations in each country may contain constraints and limitations on the chemical or physical (or both) properties and long-term degradation behavior of the spent fuel and HLW in the repository. Evaluating the design and performance of the waste form (WF), waste packaging (WP), and the rest of the engineered barrier system (EBS) with respect to these regulatory constraints requires.

Generic assessment of barge transportation of spent nuclear fuel by A. J. Unione Download PDF EPUB FB2

In that assessment, the measure of safety was the risk of radiation doses to the public under routine and accident transport conditions, and the risk was found to be acceptable. Since that time, there have been two affirmations of this conclusion for spent nuclear fuel (SNF) transportation, each using improved tools and information.

BARGE TRANSPORTATION OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS. Because of such problems as community opposition that are associated with the land transportation of spent nuclear fuel, shippers have considered using barges to transport their radioactive materials on the inland waterways system or via coastwise shipping routes.

fresh and spent fuel located on board or at the site. Fuel is delivered to the site either overland in the conventional way or by a dedicated fuel delivery ship. The balance of the plant may be on the same barge (or platform) as the fuel, on a separate barge (or platform), or built on land in a conventional way with the reactor then connected at.

Introduction. South Korea is facing a shortage of Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) storage space after running its reactors for almost four decades without either an interim storage or a reprocessing are currently 23 nuclear power plants, a research reactor and a low-power training reactor in operation throughout the SNF generated at around metric tons annually is Cited by: 6 I Tug and Tows – A Practical Safety and Operational Guide The work that tugs and tow boats carry out is inherently risky.

However, the risks can be managed and reduced with proper care and good practice. This book is aimed at small tugs and work boats involved in towing and work boat operations which may not be required to be fully regulated. Case study results suggested that our proposed methodology has been successful in assessing and minimizing the risk in maritime spent nuclear fuel transportation.

This methodology was used in the second part of this paper series to estimate cask damage frequency on a given shipment by: 4.

Shapovalov and Alexander Morenko All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics Sarov, Nizhni Novogorod,Russia [email protected] ABSTRACT. A report commissioned by the U.S. National Waterways Foundation indicates that inland river barge transportation has improved its fuel efficiency for cargo transport compared to road or rail.

Interim storage of spent nuclear fuel is notsimply a matter of postponing decisions. It is a central element of an opti-mized nuclear fuel cycle—whether that fuel cycle approach will ultimately involve direct disposal or reprocessing of the spent fuel.
