Part of: High Level Radioactive Waste Management 1990

Abstract: The paper presents the design and operation of the new dry storage system for nuclear waste. The system was designed by complete nuclear, thermal-hydraulic and structural analysis to the requirements of 10 CFR 72 and ANSI 57.9. It offers the utilities a low-cost, easy-to-operate, maintenance-free option for on-site storage of irradiated fuel. The Topical Safety Analysis Report is currently under the review of the NRC, and licensing is expected by the fall of 1990.
