Title: Pinhole Breaches in Spent Fuel Containers: Some Modeling Considerations

This paper replaces PNNL-SA-48024 and incorporates the ANS reviewer's comments, including the change in the title. Numerical methods to solve the equations for gas diffusion through very small breaches in spent fuel containers are presented and compared with previous literature results.
