Title: Hybrid Computing Technique for Nuclear Facility Design with Best Estimate Source Terms - 12313

Abstract

When overall source term representing a variety of spent fuels or rad-wastes with different irradiation and decay profile is estimated, there are some restrictions in conventional analysis tools. A hybrid computing program that employs several functional modules was developed to support R and D action plan on an advanced fuel cycle adopting a pyro-process in connection with a sodium-cooled fast reactor in South Korea. Requirements for the advanced program were first defined, followed by development of several functional modules. With the developed modules, it was possible to carry out a source term assessment taking into account respective physical, irradiation, and aging characteristics of each spent fuel. And it was found that typical conservativeness in the design of nuclear facilities can be minimized through the hybrid technique and program proposed in this study. (authors)
