...Abstract Abstract Recent advances in horizontal cask designs for commercial spent nuclear fuel have significantly increased maximum thermal loading. This is due in part to greater efficiency in internal conduction pathways. Carefully measured data sets generated from testing of full-sized casks...

... calculations of the approximate cycle took place, and a comparative analysis of cycles using only LWR and the cycle with a gradual replacement of LWR by fast breeder reactors was carried out as well. It is appropriate, because there is a sufficiently large number of spent nuclear fuel now is accumulated...
