Estimation of the Amounts of Curium and Americium Isotopes in SNF of the BN-600 Reactor
MetadataShow full item record
The neutron-physical characteristics of curium and americium in spent nuclear fuel (SNF) of the BN-600 reactor were considered in the work. With the help of the Serpent software complex, several models of the BN-600 reactor fuel assembly with different enrichment of fuel by U-235 were built. In BN-600, with the probability of dividing Am-241 by no more than 15%, incomplete burning of minor actinides (MA) occurs and even the accumulation of Cm-244, which is dangerous for storage.
