NS SAVANNAH SAFETY CALCULATIONS FOR CORE 1 SPENT FUEL STORAGE RACKS
Three storage rack designs for spent N.S. Savannah Core 1 fuel elements were evaluated. One design, in which each element is separated from the others by two 1/8-inch-thick stainless steel plates having 1-3/4 inches of water between then, and by an additional 1-1/2 inches of water, was found to be adequate for critical safety. One- and two-dimensional calculations were used in the evaluation.
