Radiation dose aspects of fuels used for the transmutation of minor actinides
An experimental and theoretical assessment is presented of the radiation dose levels encountered in the fabrication and discharge of fuels used in the single and multiple recycling of plutonium and minor actinides. It is concluded that higher radiation doses are associated with the minor actinide-containing fuels in comparison with the purely plutonium fuelled thermal and fast reactors. Additional means for a reduction of the occupational exposure will be required, mainly during fabrication.
