Title: Thermal Modeling of the TN-32B Cask for the High Burnup Spent Fuel Data Project

Abstract

This report describes thermal modeling done for the High Burnup Dry Storage Research Project that is being performed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Spent Fuel and Waste Science and Technology (SFWST) research and development (R&D) program. The purpose of this project to investigate the performance of high-burnup spent nuclear fuel in dry storage. Part of this project is a demonstration test being performed with a storage module in the North Anna Nuclear Power Station’s Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). The storage module selected for this demonstration is an Orano TN-32B High Burnup cask (Fig. S-1) which has been loaded with fuel assemblies from the North Anna spent fuel pool. The main goals of this test are to provide confirmatory data for model validation and potential improvement, support license renewals and new licenses for ISFSIs, and support transportation licensing for high burnup spent nuclear fuel (EPRI 2014).
