Seismic Response Variability of Soil Sites
The seismic response variability of soil sites due to randomness associated with both the input base motion and spatial inhomogeneity of the shear modulus is investigated. Some numerical...

The SHRP-LTPP Asphalt Resilient Modulus Pilot Study
A SHRP asphalt concrete resilient modulus pilot study was initiated to provide important supplemental information related to the AC Mr program. Initially,...

Physicochemical and Rheological Properties of Microwave Recyled Asphalt Binders
The purpose of this study was to analyze microwave recycled asphalt binders using Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and Dynamic Mechanical...

Observed and Predicted Response of Piles Under Dynamic Loads
Vibration tests were conducted on a single pile 450 mm diameter and driven to a depth of 17 m. The dynamic soil properties were also determined by conducting in-situ tests. The response...

Rethinking the Economic factors of Centralized Spent Fuel Storage
The economics of centralizing the storage of spent fuel at a single site, as opposed to continued storage at over 100 reactor sites, has been the subject of several recent analyses. Most...

Preliminary Feasibility Assessment of Several Spent Fuel Transfer/Storage Options Suitable for Early Deployment at an MRS
This paper provides (a) an overview of the range of feasible Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) facility transfer and storage configurations that are available to the U.S. Department...

MRS Transfer Facility Feasibility Study
Under contract to the U.S. Department of Energy, Parsons was requested to evaluate the feasibility of building a simple hot cell (waste handling) transfer facility at the Monitored Retrievable...

Industry Experience and Programs that Benefit the Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility Design
The design objectives and criteria for an MRS must be responsive to the needs and concerns of the public and the industry. It is shown here that to the maximum extent, existing industry...

Early Deployment of the MRS—The Modular Vault Dry Store
The Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 (NWPAA) authorized the Department of Energy to site, construct, and operate Monitored Retrievable Storage. The Modular Vault Dry Store is...

Design and Operation of a Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility Using NUHOMS® Technology
The NUHOMS dry storage system for spent fuel is now in use at two Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations (ISFSIs) and a third is under construction. This system can be used for economical...

Transportation Capabilities of the Existing Cask Fleet
This paper describes a number of scenarios estimating the amount of spent nuclear fuel that could be transported to a Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) Facility by various combinations...

Payments-Equal-to-Taxes (PETT): An Interpretation of Sections 116(c) (3) and 118(b) (4) of The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as Amended
The opinions expressed in this paper are those of the authors and not necessarily those of either the U.S. Department of Energy or of Deloitte & Touche. The Payments-Equal-To-Taxes...

Some Political Logistics of Nuclear Waste
The need for a centralized, federal, interim storage facility for nuclear waste, or MRS, alledgedly has become more urgent because the date for the opening of the permanent repository...

Evaluation of Storage/Transportation Options to Support Criteria Development for the Phase I MRS
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Civilian Waste Management (OCRWM) plans to develop an interim storage facility to enable acceptance of spent fuel in 1998. It is...

Strain Rate Effects on Pressuremeter Testing
This paper discusses the effect of strain rate on the cavity expansion problem and pressuremeter test. A cuboidal shear device, CSD, was used to perform pressuremeter strain path tests...

Data Base of Seismic Body Wave Velocities and Geotechnical Properties
A data base of seismic velocities measured in soils and standard geotechnical engineering material properties has been established at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station...
