The dissolution rate of unirratiated UO₂ under repository conditions: the influence of fuel and water chemistry, dissolved oxygen, and temperature
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
As part of the performance assessments of proposed geologic repositories the effects of temperature, dissolved O₂, and water and fuel chemistry on the dissolution rates of spent fuel are necessary to provide a quantitative estimate of the potential...
Modeling of molecular and particulate transport in dry spent nuclear fuel canisters
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
There are two important phenomena associated with the depressurization of a dry spent nuclear fuel canister after the formation of a through-wall pinhole breach. The first phenomenon is the release from the canister of any ...
