Multi-Purpose Canister At-Reactor and Monitored Retrieval Storage

Avoiding Dual Regulation of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Program

Removal of Bromate After Ozonation by Electron Beam Irradiation
Drinking water regulations related to disinfection, disinfectant by-product (DBP) control, DBP precursor removal and contaminated source water pre-treatment will become increasingly stringent...

Radiation Effects from Uranium Ore Bodies

Thermal Qualification Testing of Efficient Neutron Shield Materials

Heat Transfer Effects in Vertically Emplaced High Level Nuclear Waste Container

A Near-Term, Long-Duration, Lunar Outpost Design
The design of a long-term human outpost on the Moon will require shielding from not only solar proton and galactic cosmic radiation but also from micro-meteoroid and meteoroid strikes....

Significance of Campaigned Spent Fuel Shipments
Operational experience associated with spent fuel or irradiated hardware shipments to or from the General Electric Morris Facility is presented. The following specific areas are addressed:...

Plutonium and Minor Actinide Transmutation by Long Irradiation in LWR
An investigation was made on the conceptual possibility of burning in a thermal reactor MOX fuel together with special pins containing plutonium, minor actinides and long-lived fission...

Remote Spent Fuel Handling in France at the La Hague Cask Unloading Facility
French policy for the back end of fuel cycle is based on spent fuel reprocessing. Irradiated spent fuels are transferred in casks from the nuclear reactors to the reprocessing plant where...

Evaluation of Neutron Emission from Vitrified HLW Compositions
Neutron radiological hazards from vitrified HLW are important for handling and transportation - especially if the concept of separate storage of concentrated transuranics is adopted, as...

The Effect of Gamma Irradiation on the Volatility and Redox State of Simulated DWPF High-Level Nuclear Waste Glasses
Gamma-induced volatility of simulated DWPF high-level nuclear waste glasses is highly dependent upon the redox state of the glass. For oxidized glasses with an Fe2+/(Fe2+...

Radiation Balance and Soil Water Evaporation of Bare Pullman Clay Loam Soil
Radiation and energy balance components and soil water evaporation were measured for a bare Pullman clay loam soil at Bushland, TX during the 1992 spring and summer as the soil dried following...

Growing Season Evapotranspiration and Crop Coefficient
The Bowen ratio-energy balance (BREB) method was used to continuously estimate 20-minute actual evapotranspiration (ETa) in the middle of a 36-ha...

Stratification Models Sensitivity to Solar Radiation Data
A one-dimensional water quality model (WESTEX model) for simulation of thermal stratification is used to test the performance of such models related to hydrometeorological input data....

Treatment of Non Fuel Bearing Scrap
Problems encountered with the processing of irradiated non fuel bearing components (NFBC) during several rod consolidation demonstration programs identified the need to conduct further...

New Directions for EPA's High-Level Waste Standards
Recently enacted legislation passed by the 102nd Congress directs a significant change in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) development of standards for spent fuel, high-level...

Mine Support, Radiation and Ventilation Control with Spray-on Barriers
The use of spray-on liner agents to provide localized excavation support in place of traditional techniques such as shotcrete or bolts-and-screen has been the subject of extensive investigation....

Radiation Energy Treatment of Water, Wastewater and Sludge
A State-of-the-Art Report
Since ionizing radiation is one of the more technologically advanced forms of energy available to society, it has been applied to a great many activities such as: the sterilization of...
