Rigors of the road: ORNL invention will support licensing and transport of spent nuclear fuel

Rigors of the road: ORNL invention will support licensing and transport of spent nuclear fuel

With support from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have devised the Cyclic Integrated Reversible-bending Fatigue Tester. Combined with ongoing fuel transportation research, data from the CIRFT system will help facilitate cask designs and transportation protocols that ensure safe transportation of spent nuclear fuel.
