This document provides guidance to a licensee or applicant for implementation of proposed 10 CFR“Requirements for Physical Protection of Irradiated Reactor Fuel in Transit.” and proposed 10 CFR“Personnel Access Authorization Requirements for Irradiated Reactor Fuel in Transit.” It is intended for use by applicants.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Revision 2 of NUREG, ``Physical Protection of Shipments of Irradiated Reactor Fuel.'' This revised document sets forth means, methods, and procedures that the NRC staff considers acceptable for satisfying the. (a) Coordinate shipments of irradiated reactor fuel with other Heads of Field Elements when shipments cross regional boundaries.

(b) Approve irradiated reactor fuel physical protection transportation plans and conduct surveys of the irradiated reactor fuel in transit. 1 day ago  Many significant advances in the understanding and development of low enriched uranium U–Mo fuels have been made sincestimulated by the need to understand irradiation behavior and early fuel failures during testing.

The publication presents a comprehensive overview of mechanical and physical property data from U-Mo fuel research. (e) Persons generally licensed under this section to possess a transient shipment of irradiated reactor fuel of the kind and quantity specified in paragraph (a)(3) of this section shall provide physical protection for that shipment in accordance with or equivalent to § of this chapter and shall comply with the requirements of § (b.

The material requiring physical protection is identified in 10 CFR (a) as “ a quantity of irradiated fuel in excess of grams in net weight of irradiated fuel, exclusive of cladding or other structural or packaging material.

for transport, irradiated reactor fuel (spent nuclear fuel (SNF)). As part of the physical protection system for shipments of SNF under 10 CFR (b)(7), licensees must obtain advance approval from the NRC of the (highway or rail) transportation route or port used to ship the SNF.

Physical Protection of Shipments of Irradiated Reactor Fuel. This revised document sets forth means, methods, and procedures that the NRC staff considers acceptable for satisfying the requirements for the physical protection of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) during.

Another safety topic related to irradiated fuel transportation, but falling under the more general heading of cask handling or cask-plant interfaces is that of in-plant cask drop protection. This topic relates to an NRC requirement for nuclear reactor owners to evaluate an in-plant accident involving the dropping of an irradiated fuel cask.

Typical fuel assembly. Irradiated nuclear fuel, also called the used nuclear fuel, is a nuclear fuel that has been irradiated in a nuclear reactor (usually at a nuclear power plant or an experimental reactor). Irradiated fuel, that can be considerred as spent fuel must be replaced by a fresh fuel due to its insufficient reactivity.

Irradiated nuclear fuel is characterized by fuel burnup which. Holtec proposes to store as much asmetric tons of highly radioactive irradiated or “spent” nuclear fuel – more than twice the amount of spent fuel currently stored at U.S.

nuclear power reactors – in shallowly buried containers on the site. Appendix D to Part 73 - Physical Protection of Irradiated Reactor Fuel in Transit, Training Program Subject Schedule Pursuant to the provision of § of 10 CFR p each licensee who transports or delivers to a carrier for transport irradiated reactor fuel is required to assure that individuals used as shipment escorts have completed [email protected]{osti_, title = {Dose rate estimates from irradiated light-water-reactor fuel assemblies in air}, author = {Lloyd, W R and Sheaffer, M K and Sutcliffe, W G}, abstractNote = {It is generally considered that irradiated spent fuel is so radioactive (self-protecting) that it can only be moved and processed with specialized equipment and facilities.The back end of the fuel cycle may take two different paths: (1) an open fuel cycle, whereby irradiated fuel discharged from the reactor is put into temporary wet storage and then dry-storage with the ultimate hope of permanent disposal or (2) a closed fuel cycle, whereby irradiated fuel discharged from the reactor undergoes a reprocessing.
