  • This study explores the impact of wastes generated from potential future fuel cycles and the issues presented by classifying these under current classification criteria, and discusses the possibility of a comprehensive and consistent characteristics-based classification framework based on new waste streams created from advanced fuel cycles. A static mass flow model, Fuel-Cycle Integration and Tradeoffs (FIT), was used to calculate the composition of waste streams resulting from different nuclear fuel cycle choices. This analysis focuses on the impact of waste form heat load on waste classification practices, although classifying by metrics of radiotoxicity, mass, and volume is also possible. Themore » value of separation of heat-generating fission products and actinides in different fuel cycles is discussed. It was shown that the benefits of reducing the short-term fission-product heat load of waste destined for geologic disposal are neglected under the current source-based radioactive waste classification system , and that it is useful to classify waste streams based on how favorable the impact of interim storage is in increasing repository capacity.« less

  • Using surface traces, scanning electron microscopy, and light microscopy, Ti-, Co-, Ni-, and Fe-base alloys were evaluated for erosion and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) after exposure at about 104{sup 0}C to the nozzle exhaust from acidified geothermal brine. Examples of erosion, SCC, and corrosion are shown. Results are evaluated in terms of synergism between erosion, corrosion, and stress. Repassivation kinetics might play a key role in the formation and growth of erosion cavities. Of the materials tested, the Ti-base alloys appear to have the best combination of resistance to SCC and erosion/corrosion in high-salinity, highly mineralized, acidified, two-phase nozzle exhaust.
  • Rockwell International's recent stress corrosion test data on structural steels and their weldments under uniaxial loading (stress, 80 percent of yield strength) in static Sinclair 4 geothermal brine at 204 /degree/C for 1700 h (10 weeks) are presented. The alloys tested were 26Cr-1Mo, 18Cr-2Mo, 9Cr-1Mo and Type 316 stainless steel and their weldments. Results of testing with and without air contamination are described. Results of the post-test mechanical-properties testing and metallographic analysis are also presented. 9 refs.
  • This work involved extensive field tests at three Strategic Petroleum Reserve conducted by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to improve the performance of brine injection wells. It was established that granular media filtration, when used with proper chemical pretreatments, provides an effective and economical method for removing particulates from hypersaline brines. This treatment allows for the injection of 200,000 bpd with significantly increased well half-lives of 30 years. 7 refs.
