Abstract: The movement of nuclear waste can be accomplished by various transport modal options involving different types of vehicles, transport casks, transport routes, and intermediate intermodal transfer facilities. A series of systems studies are required to evaluate modal/intermodal spent fuel transportation options in a consistent fashion. This paper provides total life-cycle cost and life-cycle dose estimates for a series of transport modal options under existing site constraints.
