NRC schedules webinars on Holtec’s proposed New Mexico storage site
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled four webinars in late August and early September to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Holtec International’s proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in New Mexico. Webinars were previously held on June 23 and July 9.
As published in the August 13 Federal Register, the public comment webinars will be held on August 20 from 6–9 p.m., August 25 from 2–5 p.m., August 26 from 6–9 p.m., and September 2 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. All times are Eastern. Information for the webinars is posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage.

The chaotic phenomena of the low frequency magnetic fluctuations in the HANBIT device have been studied and measured by two magnetic probe arrays in the central cell. The HANA (HANBIT Nonlinear Analysis) code has been developed and used to analyze the magnetic fluctuations to determine whether or not it is chaotic. The autocorrelation function of the magnetic fluctuations is obtained at two different positions in the HANBIT device and was also used to determine chaotic transition. The influence of the magnetic field strength on the magnetic fluctuations has also been studied. When the magnetic field strength is over 0.229 T~ 0.233 T, wave bifurcation is observed and the Primary Lyapunov Exponent (PLE) value is increased. Hence, there is chaotic transition at a specific magnetic field strength in the HANBIT device.
