Safe and secure transport and storage of radioactive materials are essential for sustainable nuclear fuel cycle. The basic technologies are matured, but they have been progressively developed to make transport and storage safer and more secure. Safe and secure culture that encourages a questioning and learning attitude and that discourages complacency should be fostered and maintained. This book provides current basis of safe and secure transport and storage so that those technologies can be readily traced, improved, or modified, if necessary, for and by the future generations. This book overviews current available information in the literature. It also covers advanced technology on similar subjects in the literature. On top of that, new and valuable subjects are introduced for readers to grasp the wide spectrum of the safe and secure transport and storage technology. The contents are arranged and divided into three sections, I: Safety of Transport, II: Safety of Storage, III: Security of Transport and Storage. Contents: Introduction (T Saegusa) Transport: Safety of Transport (G Sert and K Sorenson) Performance of UF6 Packages Under Water Immersion (C Itoh and T Saegusa) Performance of UF6 Packages Under Fire Accident Conditions (G Sert, K Shirai and M Wataru) Radiological and Toxic Impacts and Preparedness for Transport Accidents Involving Release of UF6 (G Sert) Performance of Packages with Transport Frame Under Drop Accidents (C Itoh and T Saegusa) Internal Cask Content Collision During Drop Tests (V Ballheimer, T Quercetti and F Wille) Codification of Ductile Cast Iron Cask (T Saegusa and T Arai) SNF and HLW Package Assessment Under Fire Impac (G Sert and B Eckert) Performance of SNF and HLW Packages Under Immersion Accident (C Itoh and T Saegusa) Aging Management for Transport (Post-Storage Transport of Dual Purpose Package for Spent Fuel) (T Saegusa Chapte) Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Transport of Spent Nuclear Fuel (D J Ammerman) Internal Pressure Build-up of Waste Packages with Wet Contents Under Fire Impact (M Nehrig and F Wille) Radiological Impact of Sea Transport Accident (D Tsumune) Design Loads and Allowable Stresses in Package Attachment Points (G Sert and M Moutarde) Experience Feedback for Assessment of Transport Package Design Safety Reports (G Sert and M-T Caillard-Lizot) Security of Transport and Storage: Security of Transport and Storage (M Hirose, O Loiseau and G Sert) Enhancement of Physical Protection Measures Reflecting the Accident of Fukushima Daiichi NPP and INFCIRC/225/Revision 5 (T Iida, K Tanuma, K Ochiai and T Yamaguchi) Safety of Storage: Safety of Storage (T Saegusa) Long-term Metal Seal Performance (H Völzke and D Wolff) Aging Management Program for Spent Fuel Storage (T Saegusa) Chloride Induced Stress Corrosion Cracking (M Wataru, K Shirai, J Tani, M Goto and T Saegusa) Advanced Monitoring of Containment of Canister (H Takeda) Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage (G Bjorkman and T Saegusa) Readership: Advanced graduate students and researchers in the field of nuclear engineering and nuclear waste management.
