The Attractiveness of Materials in Advanced Nuclear Fuel Cycles for Various Proliferation and Theft Scenarios
We must anticipate that the day is approaching when details of nuclear weapons design and fabrication will become common knowledge. On that day we must be particularly certain that all specialExpand
An Assessment of the Attractiveness of Material Associated with a MOX Fuel Cycle from a Safeguards Perspective
This paper is an extension to earlier studies that examined the attractiveness of materials mixtures containing special nuclear materials (SNM) and alternate nuclear materials (ANM) associated withExpand
AN ASSESSMENT OF THE PROLIFERATION RESISTANCE OF MATERIALS IN ADVANCED NUCLEAR FUEL CYCLES
This paper summarizes a study, performed at the request of the United States Department of Energy (DOE), of materials mixtures containing special nuclear materials (SNM) produced in a number ofExpand
Air Activation Following an Atmospheric Explosion
In addition to thermal radiation and fission products, nuclear explosions result in a very high flux of unfissioned neutrons. Within an atmospheric nuclear explosion, these neutrons can activate theExpand
Representative Atmospheric Plume Development for Elevated Releases
An atmospheric explosion of a low-yield nuclear device will produce a large number of radioactive isotopes, some of which can be measured with airborne detection systems. However, properly equippedExpand
Anomalies of Nuclear Criticality, Revision 6
TLDR
This report is revision 6 of the Anomalies of Nuclear Criticality. Expand
Characterization strategy report for the criticality safety issue
High-level radioactive waste from nuclear fuels processing is stored in underground waste storage tanks located in the tank farms on the Hanford Site. Waste in tank storage contains lowExpand
Studies on the properties of hard-spectrum, actinide fissioning reactors. Final report
It is technically feasible to construct an operable (e.g., safe and stable) reactor to burn waste actinides rapidly. The heart of the concept is a driver core of EBR-II type, with a central radialExpand
