  • Analysis of results obtained with different cutting techniques and associated filtration systems for the dismantling of radioactive metallic components


The present joint study was intended to analyse the results generated in a number of research contracts concerned with cutting tests in air and underwater, with consideration of the prevailing working conditions. The analysis has led to a large database, giving broadly assessed information for the dismantling of radioactive components. The study was enlarged, where possible, to a broader scope including also recently obtained results outside the present research programme, considering also supplementary cutting tools and filtration systems not covered by the present programme. Data were concentrated in structured information packages on practical experience available for a series of cutting tools and filters. These were introduced into a computerised user-friendly data bank, to be considered as a first stage development, which should be continuously updated and possibly oriented in the future to an expert system.
