Title: High-Burnup Demonstration: Thermal Modeling of TN-32B Vacuum Drying and ISFSI Transients

Abstract

This report describes thermal modeling done for the High-Burnup Spent Fuel Data Project that is being performed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Spent Fuel and Waste Science and Technology research and development program. The purpose of this project is 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 which has been loaded with fuel assemblies from the North Anna spent fuel pool.
