The ORIGEN isotope generation and depletion computer code was employed tomore» These results have been compared with similar calculations using enriched-uranium model reactors to provide data that have been used in the GESMO Study for comparison of the potential environmental hazards of enriched-uranium reactors with those of plutonium. Croff AG, Bjerke MA, Morrison GW, Petrie LM () Revised uranium-plutonium cycle pwr and bwr models for the ORIGEN computer code. Tech. Rep. ORNL/TM, . Reactor physics calculations have led to the development of nine liquid-metal fast breeder reactor (LMFBR) models for the ORIGEN2 computer code. Four of the models . Methods of detection unique to arms control and treaty verification are discussed here. The conditions and opportunities for detection in these enivronments are contrasted with portal monitoring and cargo screening environments. First, neutron multiplicity counting is covered, including both the technology involved and the mathematics : Edward C. Morse.

Detector response to neutrons and photons is described for pressurized-water-reactor (PWR) and boiling-water-reactor (BWR) systems. Particle fluxes are calculated, and detector signals are then. Advanced Fuel Cycle Cost Basis – Edition vi Septem NTRD-FCO (September ) vi Advanced Fuel Cycle Cost Basis New data and the references supporting it in the cost modules Additional reactor types (R-modules) Additional sub-modules that address different topics within the main module (e.g. fabrication of different types of fuels). Light water reactor spent fuel in the U.S. contains only about 37 MBq of carbon per kg U (1 curie per metric tonne of initial uranium); however, the potential U.S. repository at Yucca Mountain would be located above the water table, where air is by: 5. The safe, secure, reliable and economic management of spent fuel arising from nuclear power reactors is key for the sustainable utilization of nuclear energy and covers many technological aspects related to the storage, transportation, recycling and disposal of the spent fuel and the high level waste (HLW) generated from spent fuel reprocessing. The sustainability of nuclear energy involves.
