The inventory of spent fuel located at independent spent fuel storage installations across the US continues to increase. An understanding of the technical aspects of spent fuel storage is important as the U.S. seeks to manage this inventory. Additionally, the eventual transport of spent fuel to either a consolidated interim storage facility or a permanent disposal facility must also be well understood. This session covers all aspects of spent fuel storage and transportation, including routing of transportation casks and the design and manufacture of storage and/or transportation casks.
