Summary

The behavior of the casks used for the shipment of nuclear material must be assessed for a set of various normal and accidental situations. Though not explicitly required in the french regulations, the security of the casks must be studied in the case of terrorism. The “Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire” (IRSN), in order to provide the Authority with elements of appreciation, has conducted analyses. These analyses have been based on both experiments and numerical models for various kinds of casks and loads. These studies have been carried out with the concern that this approach be consistent with the one used for the facilities.
