Abstract

Improvements in existing national and multinational decay-data sub-libraries are merited in order to derive more accurate estimates of decay heat from irradiated Th/U fuel. Recommendations focus on particular fission-product radionuclides that warrant study and improved specification of their decay characteristics by means of total absorption gamma-ray spectroscopy (TAGS/TAS) to better define their decay properties in terms of their total energy release and component mean beta and gamma energy releases. Decay-data needs of greatest relevance to Th/U fuel have been derived, as well as requirements that are judged to be common to both the Th/U and U/Pu fuel cycles.
