RESIDUAL HEAT POWER REMOVAL FROM SPENT NUCLEAR FUEL DURING DRY AND WET STORAGE

Daniel Vlček

Abstract


This project deals with the thermal analyses of the wet and dry storages of the spent nuclear fuel. The dry spent fuel storage sub-channel code COBRA-SFS has been used in order to calculate the temperature field. In this code, the new model of residual heat removal was created for the SKODA 1000/19 cask where the spent nuclear fuel TVSA-T type from NPP Temelin will be stored. The object of calculations was to obtain the inside temperatures under maximum loads. After that, the results were compared to the requirements of the local regulatory body. Because of the absence of experimental data, the validation of the created computational models could not be accomplished. However, according to the verification scheme of the COBRA-SFS authors, the verification of the new models was implemented.
