This study provides estimates of the time-dependent radioactivity characteristics of actinide isotopes in spent nuclear fuel, recovered plutonium and highlevel waste material from the fuel reprocessing plant. The estimates are provided for Light Water Reactors (LWRs) operating on a UO2 equilibrium fuel cycle, afirst recycle of the plutonium produced and a second plutonium recycle. In addition to these three LWR nuclear fuel cycle computations, a fourth set is given which corresponds to a Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) cycle operating with mixed oxide fuel. Four time periods were considered for each of the above categories: (1) 100 years, (2) 1,000 years, (3) 10,000 years, (4) 100,000 years. In addition, log-log graphs for the time period from 1 year to 1 x 10 to the 8th power years were included.
