Description / Abstract:

This standard1) defines the required functions of dry storage facilities for new fuel at light water reactor nuclear power plants. It provides minimum design requirements for safe storage of new nuclear fuel and control components at such plants. The fuel storage facilities covered by this standard are used for receiving, inspecting, and storing fuel containing new and recycled uranium and mixed oxides. The basis of this standard is to ensure that the design of the facility will be performed in an efficient and economical manner to (a) preclude criticality; (b) ensure protection of new fuel assemblies, control components, plant personnel, and the public; and (c) maintain radiation exposures As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA). Storage of new fuel assemblies in a spent fuel pool is covered in ANS-57.2-1983 (withdrawn) [1].2)

1) The current standard, ANSI/ANS-57.3-2018, is hereinafter referred to as “this standard.”

2) Numbers in brackets refer to corresponding numbers in Sec. 7, “References.”
