Description / Abstract:
This guide provides guidance for establishing a surveillance
test program to monitor the performance of boron-based neutron
absorbing material systems (absorbers) necessary to maintain
sub-criticality in nuclear fuel storage racks in a pool
environment. The practices presented in this guide, when
implemented, will provide a comprehensive surveillance test program
to verify the functionality and integrity of the neutron absorbing
material within the storage racks. The performance of a
surveillance test program provides added assurance of the safe and
effective operation of a high-density storage facility for nuclear
fuel. There are several different techniques for surveillance
testing of boron-based neutron absorbing materials. This guide
focuses on coupon monitoring and in-situ testing.
