WASTE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

Shipping systems are being developed for three nuclear waste types: PWR and BWR spent fuel (SF), high-level waste (HLW), and clad waste (CW). Preliminary work on conceptual cask designs is discussed. Shielding of the cask is considered. Work shows that special attention must be given to the impact of recycle economies on shipping systems.
