Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: High Level Radioactive Waste Management 1990


Partially failed containers may provide a meaningful barrier to the release of gaseous radionuclides. A modeling approach is outlined and sample calculations are provided that show the effects on release due to a limited perforation area, to decreasing temperature, and to the partial occulusion of the perforated area by corrosion products.
