EVALUATION OF SAFETY IN THE TRANSPORTATION OF NATURAL URANIUM HEXAFLUORIDE

A general model developed for the safety of transporting radioactive materials is applied to UF sub 6 . Results given concern only the container contents during an accident; harmful consequences to the environment are not considered. It is shown that railroad transport is safer than road transport, particularly with regard to fire. (ERA citation 03:030436)
