Analysis of Thermal Storage Conditions for the Chornobyl NPP Spent Fuel Under Conditions of Its Long-Term Interim Storage at ISF-2

Period: 2001

Customer: Chornobyl NPP

Using the HEATING module, SCALE 4.4a computer code, thermal storage condition for the Chornobyl NPP spent nuclear fuel (SNF) under conditions of its long-term storage at ISF-2 was assessed. The calculation results enable to enhance safety of spent fuel, contribute to optimizing the process of spent fuel assemblies (SFA) transportation to ISF-2. With consideration for assessments of SNF induced activity, these will provide for significant reduction in radiation loads on the personnel involved in SNF management operations.
