Abstract: In Japan, the cask-storage method of spent fuel will be licensed in the near future and the related R&D works (partly of the Japanese Government have been carried out mainly by CRIEPI. This paper describes the results of research subjects that CRIEPI selected in order to provide reference data for the licensing of the cask storage method as follows : (1) Thermal Analysis and Test for Fuel Pin, (2) Creep Test for Fuel Cladding, (3) Long Term Performance Test of Metalic Seals, (4) Cask Drop Test onto Reinforced Concrete Pad, (5) Material Integrity Test for Ductile Cast Iron Cask, (6) Reinforced-Concrete-Slab Drop Test onto Cask, (7) Toppling Test of Cask.
