Abstract:

AT PRESENT, THE INDUSTRY USES MANY DIFFERENT METHODS TO CHARACTERIZE HARDWARE IN TERMS OF TIS RADIONUCLIDE CONTENT AT THE TIME OF DISPOSAL. ALL OF THES METHODS INVOLVE SOME FORM OF COMPONENT RADIATION PROFILING TO OBTAIN CO-60 ES ESTIMATES COUPLED WITH SCALING OF 10CFR PART 61 LONG LIVED NUCLIDES FOUND IN HARDWARE. UNDERWATER RADIATION PROFILES ARE OBTAINED UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS, WITH DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS. THUS, THERE ARE NOT STANDARDS, OR CRITERIA, FORCHARACTERIZATION, WHICH LEADS TO RELATIVELY LARGE UNC UNCERTAINTIES IN ESTIMATING THE MAJOR NUCLIDES WHICH EFFECT CLASSIFICATION UNDER PART 61. PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT WOULD IDENTIFY CURRENT PRA PRACTICES AND METHODS, THE DATA USED TO SUPPORT SHIPMENT CLASSIFICATION, AND THE UNCERTAINTIES ASSOCIATED WITH THESE PRACTICES, AND BOUND THEM. PHASE II WOULD RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND FIELD TESTING OF METHODS WHICH WOULD ADD CONSISTENCY TO CHARACTERIZATION PRACTICES AND SIGNIFIC- CANTLY REDUCE CLASSIFICATION UNCERTAINTIES.
