Abstract: An interim storage system design and operating strategy were developed for implementation in the Integral Fast Reactor Fuel Cycle Demonstration. Waste characteristics and thermal power levels as a function of time were established for the principal waste streams. A passive convective cooling system has been designed and a thermal model of the system was developed. Heat transfer in a sealed storage facility was also modeled. The various design parameters, waste characteristics and heat transfer models were then used to investigate the interrelationships between systems to determine a flexible strategy that would minimize the number of required waste containers and storage space.
