Title: Shielding and Containment Evaluations of the NAC-LWT Cask with Tritium Burnable Poison Rods

Abstract

In 1989, the NAC legal weight truck cask (NAC-LWT) was approved by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to transport either one pressurized water reactor (PWR) fuel assembly or two boiling water reactor (BWR) fuel assemblies. Since that time, license amendments have allowed the shipment of high-burnup PWR and BWR fuel rods, MTR-type research reactor fuel elements, and TRIGA-type fuel elements. In 1999, DOE approved an NAC-LWT submittal for a shipment of lead test assemblies (LTAs) containing tritium-producing burnable poison rods (TPBARs). This paper presents the 10 CFR Part 71 shielding and containment evaluations of the NAC-LWT with the LTA payload.
