Deposition Modeling Updates for a Vertical System


This report provides deposition modeling updates and results for a vertical spent nuclear fuel (SNF) storage system. The vertical storage system was the NAC International’s Modular, Advanced Generation, Nuclear All-purpose STORage System (MAGNASTOR®). The updates to the model included running a turbulent model sensitivity study and incorporating droplet evaporation into the deposition model for the MAGNASTOR®. In addition to the updates to the vertical MAGNASTOR system this report discusses the topic of particle resuspension and future work related to looking at resuspension in both a vertical and horizontal storage system.
