Application of an independent parallel reactions model on the annealing kinetics to irradiated graphite waste

Abstract:

The first generation of UK research and production reactors were graphite moderated and operated at low temperatures, below 150 °C. The graphite in these reactors now contains a significant amount of stored (Wigner) energy that may be relatively easily released by heating the graphite above the irradiation temperature. This exothermic behaviour has lead to a number of decommissioning issues which are related to characterization of graphite samples, long term "safe-storage", reactor core disma...
